Ponder These Things
I AM MEDITATION
(It should be done between 12:00-3:00 a.m and 6:00-9:00 a.m.)
The I-am meditation is for everybody.
You do not really have to be ready for it.
It’s a very simple thing for you to do.
What you do is you relax. Surrender your mind to the Self by just letting go, watching the mind.
You begin by practicing vipassana meditation.
You observe your mind, your thoughts, your feelings, your emotions, just watch, for a couple of moments.
And then you ask yourself the question, “Who is watching? Who is the witness?” and you say, “I am.”
With your respiration, you inhale you say, “I,” you exhale you say, “am.”
What this does it quietes the mind. Makes you very peaceful.
Makes you go into the next step. Makes you one pointed.
It’s a very powerful meditation.
It’s for those people who wish to meditate.
Whenever you meditate there is an object for your meditation.
Either a saint or a Sage or a guru or a flower or a mountain or a blade of grass or a candle.
Meditation always needs a subject and an object.
Yet the highest form of meditation is the I-am meditation because I-am is the first name of God. “I Am That I Am.”
Consequently when you practice I-am meditation you become very quiet and peaceful and wonderful things ensue.
