There are two types of meditation that I practice by necessity. Sometimes, I go against the pros who preach that I must empty my mind to truly meditate. But when I am in need of spiritual uplifting, I always clear all thoughts that come my way. Regardless of which method I use, I revel in the one true course and that is to serve God and then with His guidance, serve others. My meditations comfort my soul for I am with God in this holy time, and I know that I am His child and a follower of Jesus’s refreshing light.
While I meditate, God teaches me that I must be willing to be open to His Grace, exposing the grace in me and all others. He also reminds me that He has known me long before I was in my mother’s womb and am His child only.
We all should meditate; how else can we discern what mountains we have climbed erroneously. meditate and open your heart and mind to God. Follow this as I have been taught, recognize where we are today, ang engage in the hopes and values that God offers us freely every day of our lives.
