com/ ) The following is a revised version of Meditation instructions given by Dr Malach i Z York to the Nuwaubian community from the pamphlet (Nuwaubian Istatlaat). The reason for posting this is to not only help explain how to practice meditation in a balance way as outlined here, but also to inspire those Nuwaubians who are stuck on the path, and need further guidance from Dr Malachi Z York himself. Meditation establishes a living link of mortals with its vast inner realities wh ich is hidden and formatted in normal conditions of the mind. A truly successful meditation brings about an integration of normal consciousness with its higher counterpart, the Soul. Let us try to overstand the nature of meditation from another view point. Most o f the time mortals are thinking various thoughts. The mortals seeking immortalit y mind jumps from subject to subject, idea to idea, object to object, in an irre gular fashion. In meditation there is first a calming of the mind with breath wo rk, then an observance of thoughts as a silent observer, then focusing the mind on a single thought. When the single thought is held for steady periods of time, finally the thinking is transcended altogether in a transcendental consciousnes ses Most of the time mortals are physically active. Your eyes move, your hands are r estless, your body is in ceaseless motion. In meditation all physical movements stop. Most mortals are struggling, straining and working. In meditation all of t hese strivings come to a momentary halt, and the energies both physical and ment al flow inward. Instead of becoming, there is a being, instead of sound there is a silence, instead of struggle there is harmony, instead of going out there is going in. Thus, in meditation the mind gradually becomes calm and serene like th e still surface of a lake, pure darkness bliss. In that transparency of the mind the pure consciousness is vividly reflected and the mind returns for the time b eing to its inner sanctuary, the Soul. In that state of profound unity, the inte lligence, the feeling, the willingness is effused into an unbroken stream of con sciousness. Therefore, in meditation there is no agitation of any kind, no rippl es, the perfect stillness of inner being. There is only Lucid Awareness and the mind reflects like a mirror in reflecting the wisdom of the Soul. In meditation the ego is overcome and the Soul manifest its hidden Goodness, Truth and Beauty. Your Potential Scroll Five Verse 7-15 7. Never think of yourself as so low that you are lost forever; 8. nor so high that you have no greater goals to gain. 9.
