ATTACHMENT

I once attended a spiritual church. The church started at nights around nine and it was a lot of fun, the place was very small but lively. The mother for the church was a short fat dark skin woman who liked to control her members. I was not a member but I use to attend with some of my friends because of the fun-loving friendly atmosphere more than anything else. This was way back then. After a while I started to have a funny feeling about the woman who something was not right, and I would go home and have visions of her looking differently than what she really looked like in real life so I started to attend the services lesser and lesser and so did my other two friends of whom I was the youngest. After a while I stopped going all together, I did not like the way she tried to monitor our movements and had members of her congregation cleaning her house, washing and cooking for her, NEVER me though, I was never easily tamed. ...

HOW TO BEGIN MEDITATION: SIMPLE, POWERFUL, AND EFFECTIVE

It is one of the best decisions to make when you decide to take time out for yourself and meditate. It sounds easy, how hard could it be to sit and be silent? While it may be easy for some, others may find it difficult to slow their minds down enough and hear absolutely nothing. The world is a very busy place and as I have written before in a post here on Embracing Spirituality, it is naturally chaotic. We are just too busy! Many people live in countries where there is war, how do they cope? Others live in countries where the economic conditions is so bad, they pray everyday for a solution, if only to help their children survive. ...

MEDIATION OF THE HEART

This (the above title), consists of quietly concentrating attention on the heart and the region between the heart and solar plexus,  which is the physical correspondence of the Spiritual Heart; for there is the true tabernacle of the divine presence whose temple is the human body.  It should be the focus of our careful attention, in order that we may be able to hear the voice of our Spiritual Witness, and maintain the vital fire. ...
