Love: the purest and most powerful energy

In one of my recent online meditation sessions, I decided to choose the topic of love and its spiritual significance. Love is an ages-old feeling and phenomenon that is perhaps most widely and loosely used in our lives. To confirm this, I started looking up the dictionary meaning of the word and was hardly surprised at how the world understands it.

In fact, the meanings got more and more ridiculous and plainly wrong as I went down the list of various definitions of love.

A profoundly tender and passionate affection for another person? That’s way too shallow.

A feeling of warm personal attachment as for a parent, child or friend? I’d argue that it’s quite the opposite – those who love do so without any attachments.

Sexual passion and desire? Now, it clearly was time to toss the dictionary as useless for understanding what love really is.

So, let’s try and understand what love really means at a very evolved level of existence – in a spiritual person’s life.

Spiritually uplifting money savers

As people who meditate and pursue spirituality in our lives, it is also important to be smart about managing our money. Yet, “smart” here isn’t just the conventional definition associated with wealth management. What if the ways we spend or save our money greatly improve our lives spiritually?

We discuss such tactics, especially when finances matter so much during this upcoming economic recession.

How meditators manage a crisis

The current crisis is bringing out the best and worst in people. We’re seeing many acts of kindness by those stepping up to help. And on the other hand, scrambling to hoard supplies at any cost and fights for the last roll of toilet paper on the grocery shelf.

How does the typical meditator view and manage a crisis? Very differently, it turns out.

The best meditators are Self-Transcendent, which means that they can think and go beyond the personal self. It’s interesting to see how their behaviors are radically different from most people.

Time to throw out that average meditation

As millions of people are waking up to a new reality triggered by the coronavirus, now is the time to get real about everything. We need real and powerful solutions. We need a sense of control and immense power placed in our hands to fight this war. And fight it at every level – individual, family, neighborhood, community, country and the world. Especially, when there appear to be no medical solutions immediately available. Scientists, medical experts, economists are all merely guessing and speculating. No one has a concrete answer or solution to how things will pan out.

Enter the most powerful form of spiritual meditation that works on an ancient energy dating back to at least 14,000 years ago.

While the form of meditation we offer is 50 years old (it was founded in 1970), the underlying power behind it is well known.

Sahaja meditation is an extremely powerful form of meditation capable of holistic healing and for many aspects in our lives, a form of protection. These include protection from harmful effects on our health, well-being, personality improvement, relationship and even our financial well-being. But above all this, it provides access to the unexplored and the powers that lie there.

That average meditation that you’ve been reading about or even trying or seems to be wildly popular – you need to throw it out right now.

Enough of the mental mumbo jumbo and flimsy solutions like being mindful and merely relieving stress. Or trying to appear cool by meditating. We need something a lot deeper that makes a stronger and longer-term impact. It should protect us from harm, heal our problems in many different ways and take us to a new level in our evolution. It should help us find the purpose of our lives, while giving us the security and confidence to deal with just about anything.

It’s time to do a reality check on what real meditation is and should be. And how you can embrace one into your lifestyle.
