"Meditation is concentration in the beginning. It's a focus. Then, in the intermediate stage, it's an opening, a deepening of one's awareness but with a focus towards the planes of light. In intermediate meditation, you're touching light more deeply than in introductory meditation. In advanced meditation, you become light. You transcend self, ego, time, space, dimensionality. You merge with the clear light of reality and you go beyond this world." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Spiritual balance is the ability to be happy in spite of circumstances -- happiness in pleasure and in pain, in sickness and in health, in life and in death, in all circumstances. That’s balance.
"How do you do that? It’s a decision. It’s a decision that you make every day and that you renew, that you strengthen. You decide to be happy. You find out how. And the shortcut to happiness, to spiritual balance, is to meditate." Rama -
Dr. Frederick Lenz
Meditation is about making your mind calm and quiet. And if the earth was not so overpopulated and toxic, that would be an easy thing to do. It's kind of tricky to meditate in this age. Rama figured out a way to make it easier -- which is to meditate to enlightened music. He explains that approach in this talk.
How to Meditate features all of Dr. Lenz's recorded talks on meditation and includes his book of lyrical poetry : The Bridge is Flowing but the River is Not.
How to Meditate provides a full range of meditation techniques, knowledge and wisdom to deepen meditation practice and understand meditation's essential role in daily life.
This volume is excellent for both newcomers and longtime meditators. Open the book at any time to any page, and you will receive your daily quota of inspiration.
"So my recommendation is -- if you seek to practice kundalini yoga -- to meditate, of course, and you can meditate on the different chakras and feel what that's like. But what will really release the kundalini is something much simpler and more effective, in addition to meditation techniques, breathing techniques, and so on. And that is by creating a stillness in your life. This stillness will come about through deep caring and introspection. It will come about slowly and then quickly. It builds in momentum." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
“The path that is followed by most persons in the beginning of their spiritual search is the path of love. Love is the easiest and most effective way to begin our search for self-realization, for ourselves. Love is the highest of all qualities that we can experience….
“Naturally there are different forms of love, different expressions of love. We can really say that the gradation of love is determined by to whom that love is directed…. In the most advanced state of love, we don't love for any reason or any purpose; we don't even direct our love necessarily to an object. We just love for the sake of love. Love is beginningless and endless ecstasy. It's an unfathomable mystery. It is the study of our lives.” Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz
"Meditation is not simply a practice. It is an experience, an awareness, a way of perceiving and also a way of life ..."
Explore the mystery schools of the occult with Rama and learn about the mystical power within you. Topics like the occult body and the allies are introduced here. “The occult body,” according to Rama, “is a field of attention. It's an avenue of awareness. It's a wind tunnel that connects the different realities.”
Rama defines the occult body as the part of us that can use hidden power to produce effects. “An advanced spiritual aspirant is capable of creating many different bodies and can utilize these bodies to help aid others in their liberation.” Although it is noble to assist others, Rama cautions us that the occult is not something to treat lightly: “The occult world is not a world for the lightweight. The occult world is a world of warriors. It's a world of power, survival of the fittest.”
What lies beyond the physical body is a non-physical subtle body of energy. This body, the subtle body, is actually the basis of the physical body, its health and well-being. According to Rama, “the aging process, the process of decay that we see in the world, takes place largely because the physical is affected through the subtle physical." Therefore, it is important to understand this subtle body of energy that supports our physical form.
