Reflections on the Truth within... Meditation is like a cleaning of the slate. As I quiet myself and settle in, my mind is still active. I compassionately dismiss the thoughts that arise. At first there are many but slowly my mind surrenders and quiets itself. Once my mind is at rest the Bliss begins. I can be in my body at Peace. I can sense the aliveness. I can feel the movement of energies. In the Stillness I am energized. I have sensed who I am. My lifetime of searching for answers has been to no avail, my Truth was within myself all the while. Instead of action, I needed to still myself. The treasure I was seeking wasn’t in a far off land, it wasn’t in an achievement or acquisition. The treasure I sought was Peace. It was right here all the time. The treasure I searched for was within.
