Word into Silence: A Manual for Christian Meditation
About this deal
Question: What is the real meaning of devotion in spirituality? How can devotion help one to reach the Truth? What is the path of devotion? How to prepare oneself for devotion? Which one is greater, observation or devotion? Propone la perseverante repetición de un mantra como el camino para llegar a la pobreza y a ese despojo de los aspectos fragmentados e ilusorios del yo, y así reconocer nuestra verdadera identidad: somos hijos del Padre y el ser de Dios es el que sostiene el nuestro. Silence is meditation. It is a question of changing the gestalt, shifting the attention from words into silence – which is always there."
But if this becomes the end, if this becomes a purpose in itself, then this becomes an obstruction. This book makes clear the meaning and purpose of meditating so that we may embark on the journey with deeper understanding and commitment.Question: Acharya Ji, only sometimes do I consciously know that I really want liberation. How to increase one’s quality, so that this want is continuous?
That one, final experience, remains elusive. We exist for the sake of That. That which is liberation. We breathe for the sake of that. We come to tomorrow, so that tomorrow, THAT may come. So, it is for the sake of THAT, that time exists. It is for the sake of THAT, that all future exists. The all-important aim in Christian meditation is to allow God s mysterious and silent presence within us to become more and more not only a reality, but the reality which gives meaning, shape and purpose to everything we do, to everything we are... The object of love is so big, so total, so filling, so occupying, so unrelenting, so very compelling, that it leaves no space for the subject to hide and survive.
La meditación es la oración de fe, porque primero debemos dejar de lado nuestro ego para que el Otro aparezca, sin saber a ciencia cierta si verdaderamente aparecerá”. Spend the first 10 minutes of this step reading a chapter of your book. Then, use the remaining 10 minutes to write down a summary of what you just read by hand to strengthen your ability to process the information, and learn something new. The Ego will not get it, using its doership. That which a thing brings cannot be of a quality dimensionally superior to the thing itself.
