Meditation is the process of pulling away from the mind, the container of everything imaginable, and making a space that can be filled with the Divine. The process is moving from the mind into the heart, or core of being. In that region we find the “Self”, our divine consciousness, the part that knows that it is not separate from our Source, and knows that our Creator remains eternally present within our soul. This has been called our temple, a meeting place for us to commune with God. It does take effort to achieve this state, but the rewards are beyond description. Slow down and find the bliss that is the “pearl of great price.” Love one another with kindness, and especially tolerance.
