by Valerie King • In meditation as we close our eyes and focus on the third eye, let us place our gaze on that screen in front of us upon which the star of Christ first appears. Let our eyelids gently close as we become conscious of our breathing.
Let us become conscious of our thoughts slowing as we move our awareness behind our thoughts. Let us look intently, as if we are diving deep into a beautiful ocean, diving as deep as we can to find that precious pearl that lies at the bottom in the depthless sea of Spirit. The quieter our minds become, the deeper we can dive.
That precious pearl, that star of light is our real Self. This body that we wear, this personality that we wear, with all its thoughts and emotions and desires, is just like a piece of clothing that we are wearing. It is not our true Self. I Am That I Am exists at the very center, the very core of our being. This is what meditation is for: to rediscover who I Am really is.
