Add greater depth to your meditation practice
The other day I went into a healing centre and there above the doorway hung a line of Tibetan prayer flags. They were in bright bold colours of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple. Each flag had a single Mandarin symbol printed on it and below the translation in English. As I read each one I thought how meditative these high vibrational words and sentences were. I asked my friend's colleague where the flags had come from. He said he had bought them in a shop in Sydney, Australia. I do so appreciate whoever wrote them. They are quoted below and you may be interested in using them in your life. Perhaps you too may resonate with these high vibrational words and sentences.
As a suggestion you could concentrate on one of them each time you meditate, quietly repeating the word as a mantra to enable you to remain in one pointed focus in your practice. You could write the words on cards and place them around your home, office, in your car, wallet or purse to read to yourself and absorb the essence of these words. You could memorize some of the sentences and repeat them as affirmations. Singing them out loud in the shower, in the car, or as you exercise, are other ways of holding them in your consciousness. This last idea is probably best done alone unless you are a great singer!
As you continue your meditation practice these very qualities will be more and more an integral part of your life.
