My teacher, Mr. Ambrister, would often speak on how his teacher, Dr. Thind, would be giving a talk in front of an auditorium of people. After sometime if you were really paying attention you could see that he was getting just a little tired. Then great meditation master would suddenly look off to the side for a second or two and be recharged with incredible energy and a magnificent light in his eyes totally recharged and continue his talk.
One day when Mr. Ambrister and I were having a conversation, after years of telling me the story many times, Mr. Ambrister shared with me that when Dr. Thind looked off for that quick second during his talk, that he actually went into a quick meditation and came back out.
The story always sounded like folklore or an unattainable state, until one day he suggested I did the same thing in an upcoming talk I had to give. I did try it when doing a talk for the Theosophical Society. To my surprise it worked! Just before giving my talk I took myself to a higher state, right before walking on stage, with this quick meditation just like my teacher suggested. I also did the same thing during my talk. Afterwards, over the years I would use this method and slip into my higher state in seconds to come back charged, especially in challenging situations when I felt like I was in over my head. The more we meditate the more we are able to do such things.
