Looking within through meditation allows you to see what’s going on below the surface, beyond the senses. To see beyond 3-D reality, which is so full and often all-consuming, takes courage and determination, as well as a strong wish for peace. Moving in this new direction of ‘turning inward’ to explore the unknown, to move in a way that departs from the ordinary, there must be a deep longing for stillness, for peace.
Entering into meditation is entering the inner world of you, the soul, the point of consciousness, the point of light in the center of the forehead. As you become familiar with turning inward, you begin to identify with your true identity and it becomes easier to disengage from the limitations of the body and everything connected to it.
As this experience strengthens, it gives wings to the soul. Your intuition will become more powerful. Your inner resources, talents, values, and virtues become accessible in daily life. Your sense of spiritual power increases through meditation.
And you will come to know the first inner secret of the soul.
“WHAT IS THIS INNER SECRET OF THE SOUL?”
Dadi Janki, a living treasure of the Brahma Kumari World Spiritual University in Rajasthan, India , left her mortal coil a year ago on March 27, 2020 at the venerable age of 104. Seventy-five years ago, she asked herself the question- What is the inner secret of the soul? What she came to know first hand and taught through her presence is that:
“EVERYONE DESIRES PEACE
BECAUSE THE INTRINSIC QUALITY OF THE SOUL IS PEACE.
THIS IS THE FIRST LESSON,
‘the first inner secret’~
EACH OF US IS A PEACEFUL SOUL…”
Peace is the very core of who we are. It can be experienced again and again through meditation bringing one into a stable, constant awareness of peace as we navigate through an ever-changing world in an ever-changing body.
The Sanskrit words ‘Om Shanti’ mean: I am a peaceful soul. Feel the inner state of peace that comes from claiming (knowing) that I am a peaceful soul.
“OM SHANTI, I am a Peaceful Soul is the beginning of opening up to the other secrets of the soul. FROM PEACE COME the FEELINGS of INNER LOVE, AND FROM LOVE- FEELINGS OF INNER HAPPINESS WILL BUBBLE UP.
PEACE, LOVE, AND HAPPINESS BRING US INTO THE INNER SECRETS OF OUR SPIRITUAL POWER. FEELING OF PEACE, LOVE, AND HAPPINESS ARE THE BASIS OF GOOD MEDITATION. TO FEEL THEM AND THEN TO CARRY THEM INTO OUR LIVES IS TO MAKE MEDITATION PRACTICAL.”
(Dadi Janki-from: Spiritual Greatness)
The more we ‘see’ and know the self as a peaceful, loving, happy, and powerful soul, the more we enjoy meditation and the more the qualities of the soul flow into and inform our lives through our expression in relationship, creativity, emotions, and through well-being on all levels.
As one contemplates upon the truth of the inner self, the vibration of peace produces vibrations that calm the mind, the environment, and the atmosphere around you.
You become a powerful catalyst for awakening other souls to their true nature, to the secrets lying dormant within. Your inner eye will begin to open and you will begin to ‘see’ yourself and others in a new peaceful light.
As we each awaken and transform, the world transforms. The inner world of goodness and power that you awaken is contagious and meant to be shared with others.
The Raja Yoga meditation course is filled with valuable knowledge about the true self, its secrets, and practical methods to help make meditation a way of life that benefits you and the world around you immensely.
It will make you, the soul, smile! It will make others smile! And together, we will make this earth smile once again!
