FREE MEDITATION EVENINGS EVERY WEDNESDAY:
The new blogging season is about to begin…
Let’s start it with an announcement.
There will be no more Friday evening meditations in Lauttasaari.
It was earlier in May this year that I realized that our meditation evenings in Lauttasaari had come to an end.
Marjo and I had been holding these evenings for exactly ten years at a low entry fee, but now (as it is with everything in life) the time has come to change the format.
So instead of Friday evenings….
We will hold our meditation every Wednesday evening from six o’clock to 18.45 EET (or GMT +2)
THE GOOD NEWS
And the good news is that everybody who is interested can join in for free, no payment involved. Doesn’t everyone love the free things…
Well, in truth, it’s not about money, it’s about creating a field of truth, love, being and joy.
To me, living in a world where truth, love and joy of life are the main motivators to wake up every morning to, is worth so much more than any money could possibly buy.
AND IT GETS EVEN BETTER
You do not have to come to us physically, nor we to you.
If you know a wee bit about quantum physics and/or quantum fields, you will probably know that for some incredible mysterious reason, time and space are actually an illusion.
And then there is a lovely aspect in quantum physics called quantum entanglement, which basically means that energies that vibrate at the same frequency will resonate wherever (and maybe whenever?) they are in space and time.
Therefore, this meditation is in a way like conference call, only that we will be accessing the quantum field of co-creative consciousness – or in short “the field”.
If you are further interested in the subject, you can get the idea of the “field effect” or “maharishi effect” by reading this article.
All you need to do then is make free time on Wednesday evening between 18 – 18.45, sit down wherever you are and join in.
HERE ARE SOME THINGS WE ASK YOU TO DO:
When meditating with us, please enter a meditative state of stillness, love, truth, joy, consciousness and unity.
If this all sounds like quite a mouthful, it practically only means that we ask you to focus your attention on that part of you that knows how to be still and that also knows love and the truth of life.
In case you don’t know that you can be still and be in a state of love and truth, please be assured that this knowledge is hidden in to some degree in everybody and will actually rise to the surface of consciousness once you meditate on it.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE WE DOING?
Here is short breakdown on the basic energies we are connecting to in our meditation:
Stillness is the state behind everything that is created in existence. It is an almost mythical state of nothing that contains everything. It is the gap between your thoughts. It is also that part of you that is always there and never changes.
And furthermore..,you cannot think about that – because, you might have guessed…thinking is not stillness.
In our experience, everybody has experienced this stillness from time to time.
Stillness is the most potent form of untapped potential possible.
As stillness is the mythical potential of life, love is it’s quality in existence.
Wherever you feel or have felt love – that is the state of love. You most likely know it. You know the warmth, you know the beauty, you know the power of it. You might know it as love for another person, for an animal, flowers, nature, the stars or life itself. Love essentially is the state of being open, of willing to love, of being connected.
Love is also the end of karma, your unfinished business of many lifetimes.
And please remember that love is not an emotion – it is a state of being. You where born with it.
Truth simply is that what is. Truth is the fact of life. The way things really are.
In this day, where much of what you hear or read is more or less a lie, truth becomes a powerful ally to transform you into who you really are.
You might have heard the phrase “the truth will set you free” at some stage in your life.
That is exactly what the truth does. Along with love, it will set you free.
So, as a practical tool, wherever you are and whatever you are doing, always listen for the ring of truth. The ring of truth is your inner sense of what is real and what is not.
Joy is your natural state of being. You very much know this state from when you were a small child. The whole world was a wonder to explore.
As you grow up and get overwhelmed with the ideas, belief systems and notions of our societies along with all its apps and gadgets, joy becomes less frequent and sometimes seems to be vanished for good. Not so.
Joy is in your life right now. You breathe! you live! Start with that and discover how many things will bring you true joy. You can smile! You can sing! You can love!
True joy is not happiness. Happiness comes and goes. Joy is always there behind the curtain of the theater of life.
True joy is a state of being. It is always ready to give, to smile to share.
Consciousness is the field of energy that has created everything.
If stillness is the unlimited potential of everything, consciousness is the creative expression within this unlimited field.
So in a way you can call it the quantitative state of the cosmos.
Consciousness comes in gradations, like level one, level two, level three, if you would.
Each level contains all the knowledge of the level below but is a vast improvement to the preceding level(s).
Due to various cosmic forces, many people are currently in a major shift toward a new level.
These shifts will always create challenges on an individual level, sometimes very great challenges. So if you feel unprecedented challenges in your life, that is why. You are growing into someone else and you are experiencing the difficulties of a new birth, so to say.
AND THEN THERE ARE SOME THINGS WE ASK YOU TO PLEASE NOT DO IN THIS MEDITATION
Firstly, we ask you not to project positive thoughts. Why?
Positive thinking at first sounds like a good thing to do and many people try to improve their own negativity by shifting into a more positive type of thinking and behavior. And there is much merit in doing so, but…
Projecting positive thoughts is also acknowledging the duality of good and bad. Almost every person on the planet that you talk to will have a definition of what is good and bad. And often, what is good for one person is very bad for someone else. Look around, the world is run by beings that do what is good by them (and bad for almost everybody else).
In truth, good and bad is where almost everybody stumbles. It is part of the great illusion of life. At some stage when your meditation kicks in, you’ll notice that both “good” and “bad” seem to be o.k. with LIFE, the creative principle behind it all. This is a great insight, because it allows you to move on beyond good and bad.
Almost unnoticed, by creating good and bad we create duality. Duality means two. Two is Yin and Yang, the eternal interplay between positive and negative. It is the first step away from unity – the oneness of life.
The solution to duality is to create unity and love. Unity and love are neither positive nor negative – they are the state of being united, the origin. Terror, child abuse, exploitation of others, violence, etc, are not a sign of lacking positivity. They are a result of lacking unity and love.
Unity and love are outside good and bad. And this is what we are creating in our meditation.
Secondly, in our meditation, we neither recite mantras nor do we pray. Why?
Mantras (and especially Sanskrit mantras) have an energetic quality that invoke precise energies such as reverence or gratitude. This is because of the power or the word is creative power. Also, many mantras include aspects of the various religions that created them.
It is said that mantras resonate with powerful energetic frequencies of the universe. This is certainly so, but there are also many mantras that, in the translations that I have read, include passages that I would never, ever let into my conscious mind.
So, to me, mantras are absolutely fine in another context. They have their place.
In our meditation, however, we are connecting straight to the origin of life, where there are no words, no chants, no mantras (neither are there priests, gurus or other intermediaries between you and life – you are it!)
And why not praying? Prayer is another very powerful form of concentrated energy that is usually fairly goal-oriented, depending on who recites the prayer. Those goals can be very beneficial, such as praying for world peace and a more loving way of living.
A Christian based prayer will usually ask for the blessings of the one god in heaven, a Hindu prayer will ask something from a hindu deity like Shiva, a Muslim devotee will pray to the prophet Muhammad. Some people on this planet pray to the devil.
Can you see my point?
When you pray, you are praying to something or somebody, no? A higher form of energy than yourself, usually.
The thing is that prayer works for whoever has the more powerful prayer. And as many people on this planet pray for very different things – the result is an apparent huge mess.
Our meditation is going straight to the source of life, the origin of it all. The oneness and unity.
Therefore, nothing has to be chanted to or prayed for – love, truth and stillness will be sufficient. If you examine it, love, truth and especially stillness are clearly beyond the busy praying, chanting mind, no matter what language is used. And busy mind will disturb the pristine stillness of life.
So, once a week, if you are moved to, we invite you to sit down with us wherever you are and join us in creating a field of love, truth and consciousness.
And in case you are still wondering what to do, or are very new to meditation, here is a basic instruction on what you can do:
- Sit down somewhere so that you’re body is upright. Lying down is usually not so good, because there is a tendency to go to sleep.
- Become aware of your breath. Do not influence your breath, just observe what naturally happens when you are breathing.
- At any time, when you notice that you are “spacing out”, meaning you start thinking, pull your attention back to where you lost your focus.
- Put your focus on your whole body and notice the pull of gravity down. Gravity downward will connect you to the earth and you can notice how your muscles relax , especially the small muscles than you are normally not aware of.
- Once you notice your breathing and gravity downward, next focus on a different type of gravity, this time upward. There is a movement in the body that grows like a tree upward. Feel your body grow.
- Next you go through your outer senses. These are, touch, taste, smell, hearing and seeing. Go through each sense for a few seconds, until you have covered all of them.
- At any time, when you notice you are spacing out, come back to breath, gravity, growing upward and the five senses. This will keep you in the moment and awake.
- Next you focus on what is going on in your mind. There are many thoughts and sometimes emotions. Just look at them and notice that there are always two aspects to thinking. One is the thought/emotion/fantasy itself, the other is the observer, the one inside you that is noticing that you are thinking.
- After a while, notice that there are little gaps between your thoughts. As much as you are able, put your focus onto those gaps. These gaps eventually will grow into longer gaps. Those gaps are stillness, you still are, but without thought.
That is it for now. If you practice only this, you will gradually notice that you are thinking less and that you are way more connected to your body.
And you’ll notice that you do not need to think to do this. Because you are too busy observing yourself. Observation and thinking are two very different processes.
In the beginning you will most likely observe that your thought process is all over the place and that within a few short moments can go through all your problems or whatever currently interests you. That is fine. Almost everybody is doing this, because almost everybody is attached to thinking.
The only difference in this meditation is that you consciously observe what you are thinking or feeling, without getting too much attached or identified with it.
AND LASTLY, WHY THIS NEW FORMAT?
There are three main reasons.
Firstly, the old format of meeting twice a month in Helsinki did not give me the number of people that I would like to reach.
Secondly, as far as this external 3D world is concerned, I am very aware of the power of what is called co-creative consciousness. Co-creative consciousness is a wonderful and intensely potent energetic phenomenon. It means that you and I can change something or create something together by putting our energies together.
Because in reality we are all connected within a vast field of conscious creative power.
AND WHAT IS IT THAT WE CAN CREATE?
Well, for me this would a world where men, women, children, animals and nature can evolve into a much higher state of consciousness and create a world of openness, friendliness and human-friendly technology. All it needs is a willingness to study and live with the laws of nature.
CREATE A FIELD OF COHERENT ENERGY
And, for now, the best way I know how to do that is by creating a field of coherency. I used to think (and hope) for many years that there might be a way via politics and maybe religion. Today, if you read the news, you learn that politics is being increasingly controlled and corrupted by those that wield money and power.
And religion? For thousands of years, religion was the tool to control the spirit of the people in so many different ways. Religion, especially Christianity, is equally exposed as corrupted.
If you study history, you’ll surely notice that politics and religion have been tried for millennia and it has brought us to the verge of a planetary economic and religious breakdown.
So the only way forward I can see is by creating a coherent field of love and unity.
in case you do not know, coherency occurs when two or more energy sources (such as a musical instruments for example) start vibrating at the same frequency. The result is beautiful music.
Meditating together has been shown to have a similar coherency effect. There are many studies where group meditation has been shown for example to reduce crime.
If it can reduce crime, it can also be used to create love, truth and clarity.
And it can be done wherever you are by connecting to the field.
As any energy healer will tell you, there are no limitations in time and space. In “quantum space” we can all connect instantaneously and powerfully. It truly is a wondrous thing.
Third, and this is my own perception, I am aware that there is nothing “out there”.
As odd as it sounds, what you are seeing in front of you eyes as the formed 3D universe, is a holographic type of projection. An illusion, if you will. The question is of course “whose illusion is it”?
The obvious answer is, it is my illusion. But who am I?
I am the “I” that is living in every single creature. The same “I” that is in the cat that just tried to crawl through my window to get to my food.
In truth, that “I” is primary. Billions of people and only one “I”. Isn’t that amazing?
One “I”, expressed in billions of beings in space and time!
Wouldn’t it make more sense to explore this amazing, mysterious “I”, that is in everyone, rather than spending endless lifetimes in exploring the mysteries of the 3D universe?
When it is obvious that for every scientific observation, the “I” in the scientist has to be there first?
Well, going down further the rabbit hole of “I”, it becomes obvious at some stage that everything is inside of me!
Light enters my eyes, conveying the mysteries of the cosmos to my brain. Where do I see it all? In me!!
So, if everything is inside of me, then really all I need to do is take responsibility for “I” – or to say it simply, to take responsibility for myself – for in some strange way, “I” create everything there is.
YOU ARE ALL WITHIN ME
Wonder of wonders! You are all in within me!
Ergo, by accessing truth, love, joy, gratitude, beauty, unity, honesty and all the other inner senses within me, it will instantaneously spread into all of you. Simple and powerful, isn’t it?
To me this is my gift back to life for what I have received.
So, feel free to join in as long as you are open to love and truth.
Every Wednesday at 18 – 18.45
In truth and love
