Spiritual life is the realisation of unity. And when you meditate, you rise above the tendency of separatism and enter into unity.
To meditate is to renounce the “fragments” and enter into communion with the whole! To meditate is to navigate.
Each day is thou a navigator, and each day discover a new region of the light within thy soul. The infinite universe is within thee!
In the beginning, you will not experience the joy of meditation. Irksome will be your task: but persevere! Abhyasa (practice) is a rule of spiritual life. Sit in silence and pray on! Do not falter, do not faint! Keep waiting as a sentry at his gate of mercy! Keep on praying, “O lord of life and light and love! When shall I cease to be mine? When shall I be wholly thine? When wilt thou open to this mendicant at thy door the kingdom that is within me, the kingdom that is thou, the kingdom of the holy spirit?”
There are three main stages in meditation: you feel; you hear, you see.
“God’s love trembles in your heart: with it you do arati to him: you offer him his own!”
