How to meditate Properly

is more-or-less defined as a mental exercise of concentration and contemplation, by either focusing on a single thought (e.g. meditation repeating a mantra), or by following an intuitive imaginative flow that involves relaxing the body, and calming the river of thoughts, with an aim to enter deeper levels of .

St. Teresa of Avila 1515-1582 Christian mystic about meditation

For Mystical Christians meditation is a type of contemplative practice often known as , induced by inspirational readings, and practiced with a form of visualization.

In both Eastern traditions and the Christian tradition the goal of contemplative practices is a closer intimacy with God, Christ, Buddha, Shiva consciousness, or a Guru.

The Mystical Christians would completely agree with the Yoga gurus of our present and past about the benefits of meditation.  

St. Teresa of Avila and Meditation

St. Teresa of Avila a Christian Saint living during the 16th Century wrote about 4 stages towards God and her inspiring words of contemplation very much resemble the description of a Yogi that talks about meditation. She names the four stages to God as:

1. Contemplation and concentration

2. Prayer of quiet or SILENCE

3.  Devotion of UNION or "ecstatic state of blissful peace"

4. Devotion of ECSTASY, where "the body Consciousness disappears".

Witch Hunts in Europe

Remembering the Horror of the 17th Century Witch Burning Times

While writing Ama my Historical Fiction Book, set in the 17th century China my research took me into this most interesting of times in Europe, the time of the Witch Hunts, when men of reason seamed to be prosecuted and singled out for their sanity.

You must have heard, been deeply shocked and gasped in misbelief many a time, when you learned of a war against women that was executed at the edge of the Age of Enlightenment, also known as the Age of Reason, when educated classes, government officials and legal entities have decided to follow religious fanatics and proclaimed a hunt against midwifes, healers, and independent women. These horrifying times ended with many victims, the estimates vary from a conservative 100,000 women killed to as many as 9 million burned, tortured or hanged.

Let us Time travel into not such a Distant Past

Our humanity pre-electricity, just around 150 years ago. You know the facts, I wish not to bore you, yet, we all need just a tiny reminder of how the world looked like when the physical struggle was our major one.

No water, no electricity within a typical house-hold, required quite an effort to keep a family running. Washing clothes, or a house was a major struggle, food preparation took a tremendous amounts of time.  A family member, usually a male, would be out all day farming, or within a city working and women would stay indoor taking care of the house-hold and kids.

The physical existence or pollution was our major problem. Keeping the body “clean” meant sometimes endless visits to the water source, to wash, to collect the water, to drink. This endless “dirt” resulted in many diseases, sometimes taking millions of lives.

Did you know that back in time, pre-electricity, Paris had 600,000 citizens, the World had hundreds of University graduates, and our beautiful planet had a total of only 1 (one) billion people!!!
