A Third Step Meditation


“Listen; this world is the lunatic’s sphere,
Don’t always agree it’s real,
even with my feet upon it and the postman knowing my door,
My address is somewhere else.”
– Hafez

world is the lunatics sphere

Purpose ... SANITY
Mechanism Let go and let God.

That is, to see God's creation just as He deemed it to be, not as we think it ought to be.

We start each meditation session by reminding ourselves of our intention: SANITY by LETTING GO and LETTING GOD

Begin by taking a couple of deep breaths and then just relax into stillness. As thoughts, emotions, or body sensations arise we just notice them. We don't push them away or grab onto them whether they are pleasant or unpleasant.

After noticing each thought or emotion or body sensation, we say to ourselves mentally "Let this go and let God - You I trust - All is well" and then gently focus our attention on our breath.

We might feel our breath in our chest, stomach, or even in our nostrils. Repeat this process (notice - let go - let God - trust - all is well - focus on breath) for about one minute longer than is comfortable. The goal is to get to about 20 minutes at which time the brain begins to change neurologically.

Always take what you get from each session remembering that God is leading.

Barriers to a good practice

Remember God will guide if you will let Him.
Meditation is just barrier removal - removing how we think it ought to be and coming to see how it is as God created it:

You will come to see that you need do nothing to get out of a problem you don’t have.

May the Lord shower you with His mercy and bless your affairs with His guidance.
