This is what I call "eyes open meditation." (It rocks).
|"O my mind, take thy rest..."|
I contemplate this very familiar response from a slightly different perspective, one that I've been using a lot this week, with excellent results. I ask myself: What could possibly be better than spending time with my Beloved, the Supreme Lord, here in the temple of my heart?
By taking the help of this simple question, I focus expanded, compassionate and divinely loving consciousness on the contracted and fearful consciousness in my mind, and watch as it dissolves away.
This is an example of the practice of dharana (concentration), which makes use of the power of consciousness to transform consciousness.
