“Why Meditate?” – Another Point of View
I came across a very up to date book on all sorts of current topics in the field of mind, body and spirit. It’s a book called, Peak Vitality edited by Jeanne M. House MA and featuring many recognized leaders in their field. It was published in 2008.
In the book there’s an article written by Wayne Dywer PhD who has written many books on spirituality over the last couple of decades. His chapter in the book is called, “Why Meditate?” I’d like to quote one of the paragraphs he has written because you may find it of interest as another viewpoint on someone’s understanding of meditation.
Wayne Dywer writes:
“When we meditate we begin to still the mind. As we get more and more adept at moving into inner silence, we come to know the peace of God in our entire being. We intuitively seek union with our generating source. Silence, or meditation, is the path to that centre. We can make conscious contact with God, transcend the limitations of a dichotomous world, and regain the power that is only available to us when we’re connected to the Source. This is what I call getting in the gap. It’s where we create, manifest, heal, live, and perform at a miraculous level. The gap is the powerful silence where we can access the stillness that may have been unattainable in other meditation attempts.”
