The Source of Real Contentment
Practicing meditation for long periods makes it possible, at least temporarily, to know what it means to have no relationship to the passing of time and the movement of mind and memory. And not only that, it provides us with access to our own primordial depths, which inevitably gives rise to a profound and abiding sense of happiness. And that is because, slowly but surely, we awaken to that dimension of ourselves that has never been born, and has never entered into the stream of time. Repeatedly experiencing such an enormous shift of perspective makes it clear that the source of real contentment has nothing to do with satisfying any particular desire and that who we are at the deepest level has nothing to do with who we have been as a personality. It becomes apparent in a way that is deeply empowering that through one’s own efforts one can indeed attain spiritual liberation or enlightenment in this lifetime.
True meditation reveals a profound sense of meaning, depth, and clarity within ourselves that the external world can never touch. It’s a freedom from everything that has ever happened in the world of time and space. Join Andrew Cohen this Sunday at 2pm ET for a complimentary conference call exploring the power of this timeless spiritual practice.
