Meditation is a method to remove yourself from the three-dimensional world and initiate communication with the high realms of Heaven of in the Spirit World. The purpose of meditation is to discover our true selves – a spiritual being residing in a physical body; and experience true happiness by feeling free from the restrictions of this physical world.
“The act of discovering your true self is the purpose of meditation.”
(From the book: The Challenge of the Mind | p.53)
While we are living in the earthly world we tend to forget that we are essentially spiritual beings whose real home is the Spirit World. When we become immersed in the worldly values of the third dimension, our mind gets cloudy and our physical body also gradually feels more and more fatigued. The key to easing this fatigue is to provide the soul with a chance to spiritually rejuvenate with heaven’s light. In order to do this, we need to temporarily disconnect our three-dimensional consciousness and, via right concentration, connect with the Heavenly Realm. The soul can restore its innate energy by receiving the light of God (Buddha) through right meditation.
Before entering a meditative state, it is important to keep our mind serene. If we start practicing mental concentration without calming the vibrations of the mind, this might result in possession by stray spirits. Essentially, before we are able to contact the Spirit World, the door to our subconscious needs to be open and for this to happen we have to gradually quiet the surface consciousness. When the door of the subconscious is open, depending on the state of mind, there is the possibility of contacting not heaven but hell instead. Those who always live in a good-hearted way, who try to have good thoughts and do good deeds, can easily start contacting their guardian and guiding spirits as soon as they silence the surface consciousness. But those who have few good thoughts and hardly ever endeavor to do good deeds are very likely to come under negative spiritual inf luences. Therefore, Exploration of the Right Mind is ‘a must’ for right meditation. Self-reflection practiced on a daily basis helps us to maintain the Right Mind as well as prepare it for meditation. As regards to your environment in which to meditate, it is important to choose a quiet place, where you will not be disturbed by worldly vibrations. Happy Science Shojas (Monasteries) and Happy Science Faith Centers are perfect places to meditate not only because they are peaceful and quiet environments, but also because they are spiritually protected.
Meditation does not exist just for its own sake. By practicing meditation we are given the chance to contact the world from which we originate and glimpse into an ideal world. During meditation we receive light from the other world through our brother or sister souls or from more advanced guiding spirits, so we can transform it into a source of vitality, a source of energy for our everyday life, and an origin of wisdom to dissolve our problems. Through meditation, we can regularly correct the orbit of our lives and acquire a renewed zest for living, which we will be able to use as the power to spread goodness in this world.
