Meditation: Good for Believers and Non-Believers
Dozens of times a day, athiests pray to god and devout believers in God deny His existence. Everyone, including athiests, subconsciously and consciously say things like “I hope this will happen” or “I hope that won’t occur.” This magical thinking is a form of prayer and all prayer implies a belief in a higher power who is able to receive the prayer and grant its request. Similarly, when anyone, even a person who professes belief in a God, expresses a belief that evil will overcome good or even that there is something “wrong” in their life, they have in fact denied their God’s omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, etc.
Taking these odd truths as further demonstration that the average person is very much in need of alot of inner help that only meditation brings, it is the position of the Meditation Society of America that a practicioner need not believe in God to gain benefits from meditation. In fact, by meditating, an athiest could become aware of their hypocritical prayers and a believer could see the contradictory nature of their verbalizations of doubts about God.
There are many meditation techniques, such as the “Prayer Meditation”, that have been handed down through the centuries specifically to unite the meditator with his God, to teach him how to serve Him or Her better, or some such goal that would be inapplicable to an athiestic practicioner. So, although some of the techniques may mention God, it is the position of the Meditation Society of America to neither encourage or discourage anyone, of any belief or religious background from using or agreeing to any of the methods or concepts we share. We simply want to make them available and hope they will help.
As has been expressed many times, in may ways, by many wise beings, there are many paths to Peace. We’ll to show them to you and will never imply that any one of them is the best or only one. As you grow and evolve in consciousness, the entire universe gains and evolves as well, so we all benefit.
Meditation is the best way to achieve this growth and evolution and we suggest you try it and hope you find it beneficial.
Empowerment is the process of increasing the capacity of individuals to make choices and to transform those choices into desired actions and outcomes.
For so long we have been learning our life lessons, plugging away at growing, onwards and upwards, ever striving and ever thriving…
Most of us have to-do lists. Many of us have long terms goals.
Few of us have a list of how we actually want to feel in our life.
And aren’t feelings the whole point? Positive Feeling brings us positive outcomes in our personal life and professional goals.
HOW DO YOU WANT TO FEEL IN THE CORE AREAS OF YOUR LIFE?
And so it goes that a solid make-it-happen plan should be grounded in the awareness of how you want to feel. It’s the elemental point that most action plans and goal setting systems ignored.
The problem is that the disintegrate many of us suffer from can’t be fixed by a holiday at the beach, or a visit to a day-spa. Because it’s not just our body that’s exhausted, it’s your essence.
