Mantram of Unification
The sons of men are one and I am one with them.
I seek to love, not hate;
I seek to serve and not exact due service;
I seek to heal, not hurt.
Let pain bring due reward of light and love.
Let the soul control the outer form, and life and all events
And bring to light the love that underlies the happenings of the time.
Let vision come and insight.
Let the future stand revealed.
Let inner union demonstrate and outer cleavages be gone.
Let love prevail.
Let all men love.
Alice A Bailey
Take your brother's need as the measure for your action, and solve the problems of the world. There is no other course.
Share and save the world.
All in time will be renewed.
All in time will be returned to light.
Sit quietly in a place where you are unlikely to be interrupted. You can sit in a room with the door closed and curtains drawn. Sit comfortable on a chair with your back supported, spine erect, and head straight. Dim light helps to maintain concentration. It is preferable to close your eyes. Gently bring your attention to your breathing. Breathe the normal way you breath. There is no need to breathe deeply, lightly or faster or slower. Pay attention to breath going in and leaving through your nostrils. Initially be aware of your body such as your back touching the backrest of your chair and your bottom touching the seat. Later when you are able to keep your attention in your breath you can transfer your attention to your forehead in between the eyebrows, which can help.
The purpose of most forms of meditation is to reduce the preoccupation with our worries and other mundane day to day things and be aware of what you are doing at the moment which is just concentrating on your breathing or walking or whatever you are doing at that moment. It is called ‘living in the present moment’. When your mind wanders to something else and you realise that you were somewhere else bring your attention gently back to your breathing. Just be aware that your mind wandered and note what you were thinking about. Be an observer of your own thinking and actions without being heavily involved in that thinking or doing. It is about being detached and observing your own thinking or actions in a non-judgemental way. Again try to concentrate on your breathing and be aware of any sensations you experience.
It needs practice over a long period of time to learn the art of meditation. It does not matter your mind wanders. Even if you can concentrate for a minute or two that itself in an achievement. Try to meditate for 5 or 10 minutes once or twice a day and over a period of time and you may be able to increase the time you meditate as time goes. To meditate for 10 or 20 minutes each day is more than enough initially. Try to achieve a maximum of half an hour. It is not a good idea to exceed 45 minutes a day even if you can do it. Better to do everything in moderation even if it is a good thing. If you want to do more than half an hour a day it is better to join a group meditation such as Transmission Meditation. Long hours of personal meditation may not be good for mental or physical health and may create its own problems. Doing several hours of group meditation is safe. But doing meditation regularly can improve both mental and physical health.
Some people claim that they receive messages, teachings and have visions during meditation. I believe these people are simply ‘day dreaming’ and not meditating. These are illusions created by the mind of the meditator and have no special significance. It is quite normal to see streams of colours during meditation. They are various etheric energies circulating in the aura of the meditator.
