Subject: Entrance Meditation™ Series

Book : The Well and the Cathedral (1971)

Description

Sitting in stillness, we enter our own cathedral, our sanctuary of quiet and privacy. Moving downward into our well, the inner depths of our self, we explore inner experiences, images and feelings. Our jumbled life experiences, the muddy waters of our lives, settle and become clear in the silence. New truths and symbols present themselves. From deep in our well, we are led into the underground stream, the timeless waters of eternity, to feel the presence of others.

Book: The Star/Cross (1971)

Description

As we become quiet, our breathing slows, letting the self become still, like quiet water. Our excess thoughts drop away as our focus goes inward. We feel the nature and purity of a vast dark forest that surrounds us. Going further into our depths, the forest of our lives, we see a shining Star/Cross, with an opening at its center, the place of inward knowing. Exploring the opening at the center of the Star/Cross, we realize that it is filled with visions of past and future.

The White Robed Monk (1972)

Description

As our breathing slows, we become centered and still. Only our breath is moving at a regular pace. The ebb and flow of our breathing is like a gentle ocean with us, falling upon the stillness of our inner being. A light appears out of the darkness. We are drawn to a room filled with light in an underground chapel where an altar radiates from the center, a round stump of an ancient tree, an altar/tree. Feeling the circles of the altar/tree, we see our lives passing through time. A white robed monk speaks to us, silently through each of us, inwardly, whenever we create an atom of silence, a quiet place of peace within our life. It is our secret chapel, were we each hear our own true word.
