Christian Meditation

Do what you are doing and be where you are.


Practice Christian Meditation

“Dwell always at the silent level.” —Alfred Korzybski

“Whatever you do to meditate is not meditation.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice

“Mediation is being a host and nothing else.” —Kevin Everett FitzMaurice


Meditation Definition

  • Meditation is the practice of watching your thoughts from the perspective of being their host rather than from the perspective of being a participant.

4 Premises of Meditation

  1. Thoughts will reveal their true nature when in the light of awareness.
  2. This light of awareness can only exist when you are not attached to your thoughts.
  3. This light will drive out and away thoughts that do not serve Good or Energy because they cannot stand the light.
  4. This light will strengthen and reinforce thoughts that serve the Good or Energy because they love the light.

Understanding Scripture As Meditation

“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” —2 Corinthians 10:5

  • 2 Corinthians 10:5 is used as directions on how to meditate.
  • Jesus Christ is the Light of God.
  • Bringing everything to the Light is meditation.
  • Having the Light rule everything is meditation.
  • Trusting the Light to take charge of everything is meditation.
  • Keeping everything under the Light is meditation.

Freedom & Acceptance

“A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.” —Matthew 12:20

  • For everything to be in the Light, there must be freedom for everything to be allowed in consciousness.
  • This freedom for and unconditional acceptance of all content has been considered to be meditation by some, for example, J. Krishnamurti.
  • Freedom to hear every thought only works when every thought is required to remain in the Light.
  • Suppression and repression are always part of the wrong way no matter what they claim.

Translation

  • Casting down imaginations and every high thing is casting down mental idols, pride, claiming, and ego.
  • Bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ is to make all thoughts subject to the Light.

Captivity

“But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.” —Ephesians 5:13

  • Captivity means to hold the thinking under the Light and not to let the thinking be suppressed into darkness.
  • Captivity means nothing is allowed to escape the Light.
  • Captivity means all must be before the Light.
  • Captivity means absolute freedom for all content in your mind as it is held before the Light.
  • Bring all suppression and repression desires and forces into captivity before the Light.

Obedience

  • Obedience means that the thoughts must follow the Light or be under the Light, so under its way and direction.
  • Obedience means that the thoughts must conform to the Light.
  • Obedience means that the thoughts must listen to the Light.

Suppression Versus Captivity

“For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” —John 3:20

  • Never suppress. Never repress.
  • Bring all suppression and repression before the Light.
  • Do not allow anything to run from or leave the presence of the Light.
  • Bear all things in the Light, and the Light will always win.
  • Never fear for or doubt the power of the Light to rule anything brought before it.
  • Never believe the God of Light wants you to serve darkness by suppressing or repressing your thoughts or desires.

More on Suppression

  • Suppression is an act of power and pride.
  • We derive ego pleasure from exercising the power of flesh to murder something and then hide it in darkness as that thing.
  • Suppression is “should-not-be,” and we take pleasure in knowing better, doing better, and being better by suppressing.
  • Repression is the opposite of captivity.
  • Repression serves darkness, and captivity serves the Light.
  • A powerful way to overcome the desire to suppress to gain ego pleasure is to practice unconditional acceptance.
  • Suppression is a form of no-ting. For more on the problem of no-ting, read Not.
