Your subconscious mind and meditation using a mantra

Federico Racchi has an interesting blog and an article entitled ‘How to Train your Subconscious Mind’.

In the section concerning training the subconscious mind via meditation he says;

“Meditation is one of the best ways to learn to focus your mind while increasing your awareness. Meditation is not only an effective way of training your subconscious mind it also has excellent health and stress relieving benefits. Practising meditation does not require you to undergo special training or acquiring complex skills. It is a simple practice that can be performed in the comfort of your own home in as little as ten minutes a day.

There are many different ways to perform meditation but one of the easiest is to simply find a comfortable, quiet place where you will not be disturbed.Start by simply observing your breathing and allowing your body to relax. Then repeat either in your mind or out loud what is called a mantra. This is a single word or phrase, one of the most popular mantra’s being either “Ohm” or “One”.

Keep repeating your mantra for between 5 – 10 minutes. If thoughts enter your mind, note them, and then allow them to drift away. Over time try to increase your meditation training so that you are practising for at least 15 – 20 minutes each day. As you continue to practice meditation you should find that you have an increased sense of both yourself and your surroundings. This is part of the process of you becoming more attuned to your subconscious.”

In addition to mantra meditation Frederico suggests a combination with creative expression of some kind.

Interesting Indeed these are only a few of…

Interesting?……

Indeed, these are only a few of the definitions-of-God found in the Aryan Vedas and Upanishads, but some of the profounder ones. Let me give those God-definitions again. The rishis who wrote the Upanishads defined God as:

— Pure Consciousness

and also

— Bliss (ananda)

and also

— The source of exterior phenomena, or the “creator,” whether postulated as a theory and only thought about, or personally known

and also they defined God as

— Inner blissful sound (Aum) and light (jyoti) experienced by those who succeed in stilling their minds (succeed in yoga).

The average man can easily prove two of the above God-definitions to himself, as existent; as real. All have experienced bliss. All experience consciousness. (We swim in consciousness as a fish swims in water. To think “I am, I think” is to experience consciousness.) And a few, less average, experience and know the inner Aum and inner jyotii through chastity and assiduous yogic effort.

One of the absurd things about atheists, especially the juvenile variety running about today — is that they usually have not studied religion, much less sought to experience religious truths within. The word “philosophy” references a multifarious variety of ideas. How much more the words “God” and “religion.” They, likewise, refer to a multifarious variety of things. The modern amateur atheist — and many of the professionals — doesn’t bother specifying which definition-of-God he is rejecting. He has in his head some concept of God thinking “This is what the word God means, everybody knows.” Then he states his rejection of the Mickey Mouse idea. Maybe that of a particular religious sect or Sunday School teacher he encountered when he was a child, and he feels proud of himself. Most atheists are not even aware that God is defined as as such things as “bliss” in the venerable religions.

Thus it is easy to say to the atheist: “Like the rishis, I define God as bliss. I have experienced bliss. So I know God exists.”

Atheism is the sandbox of neurotic children angry about past irritations or offenses from “religious” people. In other words, their atheist stance is emotional and not the product of sincere or strenuous inquiry. Aside from unfamiliarity with rich religious ideas or subtle definitions of God, the atheist has seldom sought out God himself. How should one expect to find any thing if he never seeks for it? Especially a thing that is mysterious or transcendental? Thus modern atheists are fools, neurotic, unimaginative men, and generally completely uneducated about the subject of religion. We have no need to bother with them. They have always been around. This site is for the God-seekers. Aum.
