Meditation

There is a place within, beyond the cares and worries of this world, that sees all, understands all, knows all, and can do all.  Once you find that place, you are no longer you; you are one with the eternal. The object in life is to operate from this place as often as possible.  Craig Kimbrough

What is Meditation? 

Meditation:  Meditation is focus.  We are constantly focusing on one thing or another.  We can’t help it.  It is the nature of our mind.  This means whether we realize it or not, we are always meditating.  Our focus and our thoughts also determine our reality.  Our present world and everything in it is a result of our focus or our meditations.  When we say we want to learn how to meditate, we are actually saying we want to learn how to meditate in way that produces better results. These better results that we are looking for may be better health, greater success, a more relaxed harmonious life, or a deeper spiritual connection.  All of these things can be experienced, by simply shifting our focus.

It has been known by the wise for thousands of years that in order to experience the best possible reality and have life beyond our wildest dreams, we must shift our focus from the material to the spiritual. “ Are you going to worship God or mammon?”  In other words, are you going to constantly think and worry about the things of this world and experience the results of that meditation, or are you going to take time to go to the spiritual regions within yourself and experience the results of that meditation?  The latter includes the things of this world without the attachments, fears and worries. It also includes all the magic and mystery of experiencing the eternal.

  1. Thank you for building this kinda church Craig, if it weren’t for the zone, I wouldn’t be connected to
    the God Force near enough, or be going to church. This weeks enlightenment talk is Thee Greatest Ever, there is a lot of stuff packed into this one, a lot of Spirit direction which I need so much of lately. And Craig, Stellar Presentation with this talk, I love the way you Created it. This one is the Greatest ever and I have been thinking that for the last four or five times I have gotten one. I don’t ever want this one to end. Thanks for all the spiritual direction in it, and education. I am listening to it often.

    1. Thank you Karen. I am so glad that you like the talks and find benefit from them. It is always good to know that the site is doing what I always hoped it would do, which is to help people. Your comment and participation is very much appreciated.

  2. Dear friend, companion on this journey,

    You are doing such a nice work with your blog! Thank you for sharing with us!

    I would like to take this opportunity to introduce my Dharma education project :http://igg.me/at/way-to-happiness/x/803523

    Sometimes, in order to be happy, it’s necessary to learn how to do it. The way to happiness is in the service of the happiness of others.

    „This is my motivation, that’s why I am here! I did not run from a different way of life, I ran towards a way of life that can be meaningful and helpful both for me and for many others.”

    Please do check and let me know your opinion. Should you be interested to share with others, please fee free 🙂 Thank you very much, and I hope to receive your favorably response soon!

  3. Do you need to obtain them through a particular person’s eyes, or do you need the reader to jump into another person’s perspective every once in awhile. As its name suggests, it’s written through the active character’s viewpoint, telling the various readers what the character sees, how they think, what they know, so on. http://cort.as/8IQM

    1. Hello Mary. I am sorry it took me so long to reply. The mind wandering is very common. This is the case with most of us, especially in the beginning stages.

      When we have trouble concentrating during meditation it’s usually because we are not meditating at all. Well we are meditating but the problem is we are meditating on the world. We sit down, say our mantra 2 times and start to think about our life. Of course this is not what we originally hoped for our focus to be on. So I have a suggestion to see if this is the case and hopefully correct it. When you sit down to meditate, see how many times you actually repeat your mantra. If you are using my video “How to Meditate with the Highest Form of Meditation” the beginning mantra would be A-U-M. After each A-U-M, count, for example say A-U-M then count 1, A-U-M then count 2. See if you get to 10. If you don’t, try again until you get to 10. After you reach 10, do not count anymore. Continue to repeat the mantra without counting. When you count, do not use your fingers. This brings your concentration below the eyebrow center. In the “How to Meditate video” I do not mention counting with each repetition up to ten. This is only for when having trouble concentrating.

      You can even practice this mantra during your day when you are not sitting down meditating. You can do this when you are walking, driving, etc., with your eyes open of course. But when it is time to meditate, you do it with the eyes closed sitting down like on the download

      Peace and Blessings

      1. So far, the only “meditation” that has been successful with me…is singing. That’s because it takes a lot of physical effort and the sound is so loud inside my mind, nothing else can get in (until I stop singing and then the world comes roaring back). I used to have a house with a basement and 1.75 acres of land surrounding….so I could go down in my basement and sing, even if it was the middle of the night, until I felt calmer. This is what I was doing when I recorded the song in this particular blog (I must have sung it about a gazillion times, before I finally stopped, 3 hours later): http://storieswithnobooks.com/2014/08/14/singing-darkness-into-light/
        Now I am in an apartment. I can’t sing without bothering people who live around, because my kind of “meditation” is very noisy.
        Soooo…here I am…STRESSED.
        W are about to move again, and nothing is working out right. I set up a date with the movers and then the builder moved the house closing date to the same day as the move. This wouldn’t be so bad, except we are moving several states away and it takes a lot to get things ready and coordinated, just to have it all turned upside down at the last minute.

  4. Hello Mary

    Sorry to hear about your moving challenges. Somehow God and the Universe has a way of making these things come together in the end. I know you already know this. Just a reminder. I absolutely loved hearing you sing the song. That song was my teacher Mr. Ambrister’s favorite song. He played it all the time. He said it reminded him of a past life when he lived in Italy. He would sing that song on the gondola. Hearing you sing it reminded me of him. I had to try hard to hold back the tears.

    When I heard you singing I was reminded how much we spiritual bloggers are all truly connected. I am so happy to have met you.

    Peace and Blessings

    Craig
