“He who does not know can know from learning.” Yet, to know of oneself, reflect. Carmellita M. Brown is a co-founder of Blue Lotus Living, below is an article of hers promoting meditation and the self-discovery of life purpose. She has written numerous other articles. After reading this, I want you to reflect on the importance of an African Blood Siblings Community Center, where political, economical and cultural ventures like this can be impacting on our people. In your affirmation of the need, subscribe to this newsletter, share articles and purchase pamphlets. Subscribe, share, love. Without further ado,
“I can’t meditate.” I used to say this and I have heard many others say it as well. However, what we fail to realize is that we meditate all the time, but often in the wrong state. And it is so important to meditate in the right state because your soul whispers your life purpose in silence and meditation…
Meditate in the Right State
We meditate every time we watch television and suddenly slip into a trance and suddenly, we can not remember what we were watching or what we were thinking about at the time. The unfortunate part of slipping in the gap while watching television is that we are being programmed by advertisers who want to convince you to buy their latest product.
The same method can be achieved when we use systems like the Silva Method or Paraliminals which helps you slip into the gap (a state of pure consciousness) and hear more clearly from the voice of your Soul. In this state, the state of pure consciousness, you will find yourself able to tap in to the omniscience, omnipotence, and omnipresence which dwells within you-the place some of us call the Presence or the Presence of God.
Now many among us may say that they don’t know how to meditate and this is not true. We do know how to meditate, but we have difficulty because the ego is unwilling to let go and let God. To let go and let God, the ego cannot be in the driver’s seat. As long as we are in an ego dominated state, we are unable to slip into that gap of silence between thoughts.
It is in these moments of silence that our souls speak to us and reveal inspired actions or right actions we can take in order to realize and manifest our Life’s Purpose. In these moments, we are able to see the vision of who we really are and feel the power of our true and authentic self.
Meditation and Silence On Purpose
We can be on purpose when we allow ourselves to meditate. Silencing and cleansing the mind of daily debris leaves room for us to use our mental energies for co-creating with our loving and abundant universe.
So many people feel the strong desire to live in purpose, but to get to the power of revealing and living our life purpose, we must embrace meditation and silence on purpose. We must be deliberate about meditation. In other words, we must be sure to take time throughout the day to meditate and communicate with our soul in silence.
In fact, there is an Ancient Egyptian Proverb which states: “Exuberance is a good stimulus towards action, but the inner light grows in silence and concentration.”
This maxim from the Temple of Luxor teaches us that our exuberance which builds with the development of our mind powers is good, but if we want to experience growth on the path of enlightenment, this growth happens as we practice silence and meditation. Furthermore, we know that as we grow in consciousness on the path of enlightenment we are able to fulfill our Life Purpose. Friends, we must learn to be quiet. We should learn to be quiet and listen to the Voice of our Soul. We should understand that the spirit is always “willing” (because the spirit has volition)-in other words, something is always manifesting through us. And because something is always manifesting through us, shouldn’t it be something we truly desire?
No matter how we may feel some days, it is true we really do have a purpose for being here. Yes, our Soul Purpose is growth and expansion, but for this life that we are living now, there is also a life purpose. There is a life purpose for every bit of energy you have in your body right now. There is a life purpose for every bit of creative energy ready to flow through you from your spirit. There is a purpose for all the mental energy you have right now in your mind which is ready to manifest in your reality as some “thing.”
However, it is in silence and meditation that we slip into the gap of pure consciousness and tap into this energy which lies in the field of infinite possibility. The greatest gift we can offer ourselves throughout the day is moments of silence and meditation on purpose. For it is during these moments that the well-being and loving-kindness of the universe flows to us and through us.
Until next time, be silent and meditate as the Voice of your Soul reveals your true self and always remember to “Let the Creative Spirit move you.”
