Constantly practiced appreciation and gratitude are powerful, for sure. Have you ever thought about the fact that the main defined purpose is also a form of meditation? Have you ever had a vision and thought process so defined that it became real, honestly up-to-date, and true before your eyes after you fully developed it?
The anecdote and questions above are mostly what this article is about, for sure. However, life and reality being what it is and could be, sometimes you and I must take a meditative pause to help create a better reality.
Genuinely, reality is malleable, workable, and changeable in a way ultimately porous with our thoughts. Realistically, Einstein even demonstrated that simply and elegantly with “that equation” of relativity which he obtained through the same meditation format and visualizing himself riding a Ray of Light. In fact, when I meditate, I put every last drop of goal, idea and how to solve my realistic life problems and “work the matrix” to write, speak and practice. Personally, I think meditation is so important that it should be practiced with everything you put into it. The subconscious and superconscious minds are our connection to what we is real, and should be used more than we usually use them. After all, those are the minds that really work when you really think about them. The conscious mind is just the watchman or security guard at the gate, not the main minds of the event with what is really happening in all reality. This is where the meditative pause really comes into play realistically.
When used correctly, the whole mind is genuinely the union of the self. When misused, the fragmented mind has average results at best. My point boils down to there being too many ways to use your mind incorrectly, but one way to use your mind correctly and the word that comes to mind is “intuitively”. But when I mean intuition, I mean relying on the deeper minds in the right way, and using the more superficial or conscious mind in the right way. Use the deeper minds for knowledge and the conscious mind to remove decisions from the correct use of knowledge. Therefore, the productive use of the meditative pause comes in right there. The biggest and smallest problems can be solved creatively and ultimately through intuition and creative meditative pause, not by forcing a conscious solution without consideration.
