Trust God meditation
￼“God: there is no god except Him. In God, the
believers should trust.”
– Quran 64:13
￼“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life,
what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life
more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do
not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.
Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a
single hour to your life? ”
– Matthew 6:25-34
￼Say, "Nothing will befall
us except what God has decreed for us. He is our Master. In God, the believers should trust."
– Quran 9:51
A few words on trust
Purpose of this meditation ... To come to a peaceful heart and mind
Method ... Trusting God alone. That is, to trust that God is in control of all matters and always guides towards your long run best interest.
Start each meditation session by reminding yourself of your intention: PEACEFUL HEART AND MIND - BY TRUSTING GOD
Begin by sitting comfortably. Then take a couple of deep breaths, and notice
the peace in your surroundings. (Even if you are standing in the middle of Times Square in New York
- the underlying peace is there)
As thoughts, or feelings arise, just notice that they are rooted in lack of trust that God is in control of all matters, and God has your best interests at heart.
After noticing each thought, or feeling, say to uourself mentally "You alone I trust - thank you" and then return your focus to the peace in your surroundings.
Repeat this process (notice thoughts or feelings - say: "You alone I trust - thank you" - focus on the peace surrounding you) for the remainder of the session.
If you are just beginning a meditation practice, continue the meditation 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 listening and responding.
Barriers to a good practice
Remember God will guide if you but trust Him.
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.
