Meditation

Learning to Listen to God

What I am to be I am now becoming.
Benjamin Franklin

Our lives remain unproductive and unenlightened until we practice meditation. It is the one certain and safe procedure whereby we create and enjoy the good we seek. In meditation we train our minds to be instruments of attraction and direction. Nothing, as a rule, can be directed our way until we invite it through definite yearning and planning. A spiritualized mode of concentration makes our efforts definite and constructive. Meditation is the leading method which we can trust to help us progress.

Our purpose in meditating is to achieve footholds on Reality. The stronger these footholds, the sooner will we be enabled to walk the weIl traveled paths of meditation into those Regions of our conscious spiritual citizenship.
