Dr. Martin Luther King and Meditation (from Craig’s Journal)
January 20, 2014
Years ago when I was about twenty one years old, I had an interesting experience. I was working in a school in the evenings as a custodian. It was around the time of Martin Luther King’s birthday. Everywhere I went in the school there were pictures of him and posters and write ups. I found myself thinking about him all that evening. When I took a break, I decided to meditate. Just prior to doing so I asked a question to myself. I wanted to know and asked, “how did he have so much strength to carry on such a movement?”
During meditation I saw Dr. King. And it was as though I became him, and I was at this point, Martin Luther King meditating. Then I felt all this bliss and knowledge pouring in. It was as if I was being told that he meditated and this gave him untold strength and knowledge.
A couple days later, out of the blue, my step mom Mom Aletha, gave me a book about Dr. King. To my surprise the writer said that Martin Luther King studied meditation under Mahatma Gandhi’s teacher while in India. I felt like this was the Universe magically confirming the information I received in meditation.
I love discovering the mysteries of God and The Universe. My goal is to allow as much of the infinite to come through as freely as possible as I live my life as a father, husband, son, brother friend, meditation teacher, writer, and business owner.
I teach meditation, interpret dreams, write, and try to share as much as I learn along the way as possible.
