This question once again was posed to me yesterday for my opinion. Today for me is a commitment for Prayer so I was not intending to post on this blog site. However, I thought maybe if I posed the question others could think on it then when I posted of experiences and my personal truths you would all have your own personal answers.
Christian Meditation is NOT a process. It is not about positions. If you are standing on your head or struggling to breathe – pointing north, south, east or west or crouched- you can still practice Christian Meditation.
It cannot be taught in a secular handbook.
It is all about a personal journey. It is about FAITH but more, and the most important. Christian Meditation is ALL ABOUT A PERSON. A DIVINE CONNECTION.
It is aligned with Prayer, yes but not necessarily so.
I have two stories of what happened when I was asked to sit with a class of unruly children and how meditation became a part of this school and this class’s life. Even the teachers did not know until years later that Jesus Christ was the facilitator of that Meditation Class. Not sure about other groups but ours showed life-changing significant results that resound now years later. Christian Meditation is all about Jesus Christ.
I’m longing to journey with you as we learn together on this one
Shine in your day.!
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
