Group Meditation Exercise...

I was away to participate in our regular group meditation exercise. I have really come to like these sessions. It took me a while but eventually I managed to overcome the awkwardness I initially felt. We don't have these sessions scheduled on any regular basis. The date is fixed by our guru, as per the cosmic energy patterns. My meditation is usually deeper on these days. Apart from more energy in the cosmos its her energy field that we thrive on...lol. She usually doesn't tell us the why and how of the session until its time to share our experiences. Some times there is a ritual we follow but mostly it is sitting together in meditation with some music to help us. This time we got together on Dec 23. The atmosphere was abuzz with energy. I could feel the flow just as I entered the room. Whenever there is lot of cosmic energy in a place AND my receptor is on I can feel a sensation around my eye sockets which is difficult to describe. I sat down in the last row with my eyes closed.. I found my self going deeper and deeper and enjoying that state to hilt. It is such a joy to be able to reach a deep state in meditation. A vision flashed in front of my eyes. Slowly it became more clear. I was walking down a very narrow cobbled street. It had tall and narrow houses on both sides. That street was just about six feet wide, narrower at times, sloping up mostly. I was the only person there. I couldn't find out the name of the place but seemed like a small town some where in Middle east, may be Asia. The houses were made of blocks of sand stone. Some more golden then others. I knew I was in a hurry, there was some place I needed to be. I was rushing down this cobbled pathway when I heard my daughter howl. It took me a few seconds to react. It isn't easy to come out of deep meditation. After the session was over we were each given a slip of paper to write if we felt we needed to share something. Not every one took the paper. We were later told that it was energy of Mother Mary which was showered on us that day. I wonder if I was some where in Jerusalem. Babies sometimes choose such appropriate times to express themselves...eh!

Thanks Karoly I will get in touch with you. Thanks again for kind words and appreciation.

Most of synergy is energy isn't it? You are lucky to have a regime involving regular satsang. Best with your spiritual endeavours :)

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

Thanks e. I am indeed lucky to find the right guide at the right time in my life. other wise most of our timr just goes in searching for the right person to guide us.I guess I am luckier than most because my search hadn't even started.

e said...

The guru will find you they say - when you are ready. There is a little more than luck involved here :)

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

Hmmm..I guess so. I just said I was plain lucky because I haven't done any work....not in this life time atleast, for the guru to consider finding me!

e said...

The Gita says that ones accumulated inclination for spirituality is carried over to subsequent lifetimes. This state you find yourself in is probably a sum-total of the effort your soul has been putting in over the various cycles of life and death. In this regard please also refer to adhyaay 6 verse 40 ~ 44. Best :)

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

Dear e,
Books on religion is something I have'nt had time to read. There was no inclination earlier and because of meditation taking up so much of my time and effort.....:-) no time now. I am impressed though woth your knowledge base.

e said...

Why, thank you. But I have not really read much. I wonder if the Gita qualifies as a book of religion though. Do you think it is that - I mean just that? I can understand you not having enough time. You have a robust spiritual regime, great experiences too - in most lifetimes that is enough :)

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

A book of Life rather, or maybe a guide book. Do you have a blog as well ?

e said...

I do or rather I did till some time back. In the early days of blogging I was jabberwhacky.rediffblogs.com. Now that blogname belongs to a cybersquatter. I haven't written anything since June last year, although I have saved most of what I did write on my yahoo 360* blogspace - most of the blog work was non-spiritual. The Gita is the gist of the Upanishads mainly - a must read for those who doubt they are anything less than that which we call Supreme :) Thank you for taking time out to respond. It is nice talking to you here.

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

Its nice talking to you too 'e'. Part of the reason of existance of this blog is conversations with people who are seekers like I am.

e said...

Communication is ALL about manipulation though, isn't it? Wonder if you agree. Why else would the strong be silent :)

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

Hmmm not really. My reason to have this blog is my NEED to communicate what I am in process of learning. Some how I feel I came across this knowledge to help spread it. That is the reason I only talk about my experiences. I don't comment on what is already there for anyone and everyone to read. What I write about is simple, at times half baked, but never something which I haven't experienced myself. In any case if there was no communication there would be no Gita which I guess you like a lot. :-). I like communicating with you ....guess you do too.

e said...

You know I do :) (I also said it first!) However you will agree that there is a difference between COMMUNICATING and CONNECTING. In your most intimate relationships, where there is a feeling of oneness, aren't the silences less awkward - more comfortable? Isn't there less of a NEED - always an ugly reality in my opinion - to say something? Contrariwise, when this blog exists JUST because it does - without reason, then you know you are blogging for the love of it...for only LOVE knows no reason.

e said...

....just read your latest post and I wanted to say *hugs* I am SO happy for you!I think it would be wonderful to connect with an accomplished person such as yourself :)

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

Hmmmmm...e ...you alwas make me think hard before i say anything here...lol..you are right about silence being more comfortable in loving relatioships. Such a relationship cannot exist on a blog where you have to talk....no eyes here to look deep in to :-). I blog because I have a cause, I have found something beautiful and the only way to spread this beauty is TALK talk and talk...ultimately its all because of love....right...not my love for blogging but my love for meditation.

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

THAKS...e...thanks so much. Its only because of people like you, octavian, seeker, dreamer, bon ami and others I have met here that I have enough courage to share what I share.

e said...

I hope you never stop talking, blogging - or loving for that matter. Somehow it has become very important to be here listening to you relate your myriad experiences. It is easy to understand the apprehension, the world is so full of sceptics and yes, your courage and forthrightness is commendable.

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

Thanks ..e...lol..we will all end up making a mutual admiration society here. I too hope I will never stop writing on this blog. I simply love it.

e said...

Are we not sincere in our praise of the other then you think? And would one have to critque your writing to prove otherwise? Truth be told there is not much to analyse is there? You relate here very personal experiences which we can never experience with you ( although some of us with webcams COULD look deep in your eyes :P!)...jokes apart, we are here as mute witness to the wonders you express and convey with such perspicuity - most of us can only wonder at that :)

e said...

Effort is wasted energy...go with the flow. Tc.

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

I guess you are right ...e..I'll just be. No effort now. If things remain the same I'll speak to my guru. Its isn't that every time I sit down to meditate something awsome has to happen, but a feeling of peace has always been there.What you've read here are my experiences which happened over a period of two years. Its just the energy inside me is so erractic....which bothers me.

e said...

...and of all days, today we were both not only online, but also on your blog together. ESP on the ISP anyone?

e said...

I can identify with this post Anuradha. In Bombay, during one of the satsang sessions at my grandmother's place, our family guru once let the meditation continue for a long er than ususal period of time. When someone commented on the extended length of the "dhyaan" he led, he just said,"today mumbadevi was here. she led the satsang". Mumbai or Bombay is named after Mumbadevi.

Anuradha malik Jagdhari said...

I know...i have often heard mum talk like that.:-)

e said...

I am quite sure she does...the aetheists of course get to see bubbles et al
