On Meditation…and True Prayer

One of the greatest damage brought about after the fall to the masterpiece called man is the “reverse complex”. It shows up in everything, from how we think of ourselves, how we treat our relationships, what material possessions mean to us, etc.

The greatest manifestation of this is in what we believe to be real. It is the tangible things, the things we can see, touch, hear and smell that feel real to us. I don’t know who it was that first made the statement; “throw your mind over the bar, and your body will follow”, whoever he was, he must have been a very enlightened and spiritual person, because the things that are seen are temporary, but the things that are unseen are permanent.

The things in the mind of man are the truly real reality. What you see, hear, touch and smell are like smoke rising up and fading away, the fire that makes it all real is burning within the mind, fuelled by truth.
