Finding Relief With Meditation
I want to take you past the limits of your traditional thoughts and experiences. This new way of life begins with 2 questions that are very simple. The first question is; Do I want this to be true: “Every event that may befall me is absolutely the best possible event that could occur.” Meditate prior to answering this so that you can consider it with a clear mind and answer it truthfully. The second question is the more difficult part, it is to truthfully answer this question: Will I give that an opportunity to be true?
Imagine- using meditation- that God has appeared before you this very moment and said: “I promise you that all that you experience from this moment forward may be of the greatest benefit to you and can bring you the utmost good fortune, ” Suppose God went on to tell you, “Even though what happens will appear at times unfortunate or even hurtful, in the end your life will be wonderfully blessed and largely rewarded by whatever may occur. Stop and meditate. How would you feel about that wonderful news? Happy? Perhaps you may even be filled with joy.
Would it not be the best news that you could ever hear? Wouldn’t you heave a deep sigh of relief and feel as if a weight had been lifted from your shoulders? Wouldn’t you then respond to the next thing that happened-even if it was hurtful or took something from you or seemed wrong or even unlucky- look at it as though it was going to be wonderfully beneficial for you, the best possible thing that could have occurred? If you have not enthusiastically answered yes, set free your mind, meditate on it. Perhaps you have mistaken what I have explained to you.
I am not talking to you about the phrase we hear so often, “try to make the best of things,” which merely means” The situation or event really is bad and horribly unlucky, but do what is necessary to salvage some good out of it.” Nor do I mean that within even the worst event possible, there can be found a little bit of good. I am not talking in terms of such limited ideas. I am talking in unlimited terms, where every situation that befalls you is completely the best event that could occur-that there is no other situation fathomable that could reward you to any greater degree.
So, again, as you meditate ask yourself wouldn’t that be the best piece of news you could hear? If you are open to giving this new concept a chance and actually believe that all that happens to you will happen for a reason. When thinking about anything, to get a great deal of release just clear your mind and meditate about the good things that are to come to you in the future. Meditation can be much better than medication and you might just be real surprised how much better you can begin feeling after practicing it for awhile.
