RAJ YOGA MEDITATION
Raja Yoga meditation redefines the self as a soul and enables a direct connection and relationship with the Supreme Source of purest energy and highest consciousness.
Raja Yoga can be translated as ‘supreme union’ or as ‘highest connection’. Every soul has a right to experience this ultimate relationship.
Raja Yoga mediation gives you a clear spiritual understanding of yourself, helps you re-discover and use the positive qualities already latent within you, enables you to develop your strength of character and create new attitudes and responses to life.
Meditating on the Supreme Soul is a very effective way to develop values because God is the source of all values, virtues, qualities and powers. Suppose you spend half an hour thinking about the God’s love, what will happen to you? You will start to feel love from God flowing smoothly and naturally. Enjoy that feeling and drink it deeply into your being since very soon it will also become a part of your personality and you nature. You will also start to feel very loving towards others. It helps you to forget any dislike you might have felt for anyone because you start feeling that their faults are not important to think about. In comparison with this feeling of love, negative feelings depart from your mind, because they cannot stay when you are having a very positive inner experience. Hatred and dislike have no place in a heart which is full with love.
The most important journey one can take is the journey within.
This is a journey to the truth of who you really are. This is the place, just beyond every day consciousness, where spiritual empowerment begins. Spiritual power gives you the power to choose creative thinking rather than automated thinking, response rather than reaction, peace, love and harmony rather than stress, conflict and chaos.
Meditation enables you to embark on this inward journey.
