Discussion of spiritual practices: awakening, meditation, and the freedom that cannot be lost or found. All perspectives are welcome; advaita, christian, buddhist, islam or even no perspective at all. Just pointing to that which is nearest and dearest.

Meditation is the practice of noticing how life was CREATED not how we think it OUGHT to be.

The mind naturally becomes quiescent when exterior stimulation subsides.  Silent meditation is the purposeful removal of exterior stimulus.  

When the mind becomes quiescent we come to see things as God created them.  When presented with His marvels … we gladly submit.  Ahhhh the peace!

Which of your Lord's marvels can you deny?
(Quran 53:55)

O you who believe, you shall observe God as He should be observed, and do not die except as Submitters. (Quran 3:102)
