How can such a state be achieved? Through the same process of relaxation, meditation and self-inquiry with which we overcome the downward pull of the other chakás. Selfish emotion drags the mind down, burdening it with feelings, which bury our spiritual energy and dissipate it in the joys and sorrows of the moment. True happiness and spiritual awakening require that we expand our emotions to envelop the entire universe and gain the riches therein.
Como pode um tal estado ser alcançado? Através do mesmo processo de relaxamento, meditação e auto-investigação que nos superar da força para os outros chakras mais baixos. A emoção egoísta arrasta a mente, depreciando e sobrecarregando-a com sentimentos, que enterram a nossa energia espiritual , dissipando-a nas alegrias e tristezas do momento. A verdadeira felicidade do despertar espiritual exige que nós expandamos as nossas emoções para todo o universo , ganhando as riquezas dele.
Meditation in silence is even a better way of expressing love. Practice to be completely silent with love for God. If we can be really silent in meditation, that is real meditation. Imagine a mother who has not seen her only son, in a long time. The mother had many things to tell him. Many times he wrote to say he will be visiting her, but had not come. Finally he was coming and the mother is waiting. When there is a knock on the door and she opens it to behold the son, what happens? The son bows at her feet and she hugs him. At that time of union can they talk? Will they even look at each other? They hold on to each other without a look or a word. This is love in silence. God is the mother and we are the children. Sometimes words expressed can also cause confusion if not used in the right way. But in silence you communicate more. Very few know the art of communicating in silence. Express silent love in silence. Love God, in every breath. Through practice it comes.
In meditation there can be only you. Imagine a man traveling with a family of wife and an infant child, in the old days when the roads were not good and there were no bridges. He came to a big river and the only way to cross is by swimming. The man is tall, the wife is short and the child is small. The water is up to the man's neck and he does not know what the depth of the water is and it seems to be increasing with each step. The story goes on, the man tried to cross the river, with the child on the shoulders and the wife holding on to him, but the river is in flood. What can he do? There is no other way but to let go and swim alone. This is what happens in deep meditation. You cannot enter there with the body and mind. In silence and deep meditation the body and the mind create trouble through pain and thoughts. You have to overcome the body consciousness and the thoughts. Prayer can be in a crowd but meditation has to be alone.
