The mind is our tool for Self expression in this material reality. Meditation is a practice that conditions the mind to be a servant to the Self.
The practice of awareness is meditation in action which not only gives us control over the direction of our thoughts and lives, but it further conditions the mind to serve our higher purpose.
The belief that anyone’s behavior can disturb us is delusional. Our entire reality is in our perception, and we can only attract that which we project. So if we feel disturbed, it’s our own energy that created the disturbance, and thoughts that emanate from a disturbed feeling can only create more of the same.
We can determine whether any belief is delusional based on how it feels. Our real Self is eternally Joyful, so if our thoughts feel less than Joyful, the underlying beliefs are delusional.
We are constantly subject to delusional thoughts because we are having a material experience which is entirely based in delusion. However, the consistent practice of awareness allows us to identify thoughts based in delusion, relax our tension, and redirect those thoughts toward Joy when we’re ready.
