My Journey of feeling good.
I started to meditate when I was about nineteen or twenty because I was suffering from a painful tension that was locking me up to the point where even walking was unbearable. The meditation unwound me and gave back fresh air and freedom. I’ve been doing it ever since.
When I was about sixteen, I had an Uncle who asked me what was the most important thing in life, and I said Happiness. He disagreed and his logic and reasoning was excellent, but secretly I still thought I was right, Happiness is number one, although I couldn’t prove it.
When I started to work in the city, I found my first spiritual bookshop by accident. A weird well worn stone staircase leading to the Adyar Bookshop, sadly, almost defunct now starting me off on a journey of wonderful discovery. These were exciting absorbing times. But still, did I find Happiness? was I happy? sometimes, yes.
Then came Yoga, transcendental meditation, Zen, you name it I probably tried it. My big break came with a book called A Course in Miracles, who the Beatles John Lennon had talked about.
This truly amazing book was the first of the real life changers. There were others that added dimensions of knowledge and joy, and then a little later came the real kicker, the great shifter of experience … “ Autobiography of a Yogi”.
Apart from being an amazing read about an enlightened Yogi’s spiritual Journey, there was also a lesson course that I applied for and that took two years to complete.
Since then I have been a meditator in a way that always brings me joy, or wisdom, or insight or peace. I can safely say that my times spent meditating have been wonderful and life affirming. Sometimes I’m sure I am meeting God.
From this meditative background, My desire to know God Has increased many times over. How though, do I actually know if I’m getting a true experience of God, or am I just imagining it?
Today I’d say that if the truth, wisdom and insight that comes to me, is experienced with a powerful, uplifting sense of feeling good, then it’s a good bet that God is present in all of this.
And so I’ve been thinking, “Do other people meditate as I have?” Do they have to, to feel good? Is there more than one way to skin a cat. Are there any good short cuts?
Answers … Yes,No,Yes,Yes.
There is a wonderful healer and teacher, called Brandon Bays, who created this transformative thing called “The Journey”. A process of personal discovery that “just happened” to her. Despite everything, she felt as I do, that what “Happened to her”, could be taught.
It took her awhile and a lot of half baked experiments to find the way, and trust me, her way works. I guess it will be the same for me.
My two little words start a flow of feeling good that just keeps on, as I just keep on saying them. I thought about sharing them with you, but you need to get them by yourself. Otherwise nothing will happen. You’d just have two words that don’t do anything.
So my intent is to teach you a process, that will give you your own “Open Sesame”, to feeling so very very good.
I have a short course starting at the WEA in Wollongong in Feb, where I shall be doing a series of Feel Good experiments. If people there, can intentionally feel good any time they want, then I will have found the keys I’m looking for, and will pass them on in these pages.
