Meditation: A Sacred Practice

Meditation today has become an empty shell of its true greatness.

It has been peddled off as some superficial practice for hipster business men to do before a sales meetings, and boasted about by pilates going mothers who used it to deter them from strangling their middle grade children.

While it can help in these areas, the idea that these things are what meditation is for is akin to using the international space station as a vacation home. It works, but thats not its purpose.

Mediation is the practice of connecting us back to our true essence.

While meditating, we may peer into the universal creative force; the nebula from which all things materialized.

All that ever is, was, or could be.

The universe is very much alive. Be it people or objects, all things are an individuated piece of the whole.

Meditation is the act of connecting with that whole. When we commune with the universe we may begin to remember who/what we truly are. In maintaining that connection our hopes and dreams hasten to cross our path.
