Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening to all of you. I hope you are all doing well, and that you are ready for the conclusion of this series.
There are five steps to practicing meditation, here is how it follows:
- Subsequent Practice
Preparation: Sitting in a comfortable posture, such as that of a yoga stance. Hands held close to one another, fingertips touching one another and palms as well. Head held with chin facing chest.
Contemplation: All living beings deserve to be treated with kindness, you are no different. All our happiness arises through kindness, our mind, and body are a reflection of kindness from others.
You should treat your body in the same matter as that of a temple by eating right, and exercise. (Please note; I have to practice this part myself, so don’t think I’m telling you this for your health… Oh, wait… I am telling you this for your health. LOL!)
Our spiritual development adds the pure happiness to full enlightenment, also depend upon the kindness of living beings.
Meditation: Contemplating the innumerable benefits in which others help us. we should make a decision, “I love all living things.” That would mean nature as well.
Dedication: We dedicate all the virtues we have created in this meditation practice to the welfare of all living beings, and reciting the dedication prayer we make as individuals.
Subsequent Practice: When we arise from meditation we try to maintain this mind of thinking love, and kindness throughout our daily lives.
