Mankind on earth has most often forgotten to live according to spiritual laws and Divine principles of God's creation. So they are sometimes creating Karma several times each day almost on a continuous basis.

Another grounds for meditation is an advanced spiritual proficiency. Extended meditation by entirely concentrating on an object, until becoming one with the object of meditation leads to the comprehension about the object. This technique is called Samyama. It is a technique that may be used to get an answer about important spiritual questions, or find solutions for important situations of your life. But as a beginner you may practice thousands of hours of meditation before you may become one with the object of meditation. What is slowing down your success? Your anxieties, your expectations about the answer, your desires, preoccupation - your ego.

So rather than exercising initially of your spiritual path Samyama, you would get much better results if you start persistently working on your spiritual advancement by resolving all your ego, your wishes,... in the fire of Divine Love. If once all your personality has been filled with the Divinity of your soul - made to the image of God - then you may need only minutes or seconds to attain knowledge about an object, since one with God, you may have easy access of all the knowledge you truly need. Intuition is the sophisticated method of accomplishing knowledge about important objects in God's creation. You simply look at something and you may instantly know what might be important for the moment.

The use of meditation to receive peace within and to concentrate on God, the Divine is the recommended method and use of meditation. Some significant spiritual wisdom may however be achieved to help you to understand truth significance of life on earth in a physical body also to speed up your spiritual progress. You may find a few important and instructional questions to meditate and or think about in another chapter or you certainly will ask God to help you understand it before falling asleep in night time. Receiving an reply through meditation is much different than reading it. When receiving an response by meditation then you are fully informed even within yourself of the full content and meaning of the answer. By reading an answer you may intellectually know it, keep it stored in your physical mind without having it ever comprehended. For that particular reason many mentor from the past have written questions to meditate about - rather than provided intellectual answers. One such examples may be the Yoga Sutras from Patanjali, or Lao Tse.

What do humans expect from meditation?

Meditation is then experienced as a ease of all this mental and emotional pressure. People anticipate it to create some calm within and if properly done it really does successfully relief you of any tenseness, emotional and mental.

What is the reason for meditation in spiritual traditions?

The purpose of meditation all told spiritual traditions is to:

- Empty your mind to become a ready for virgin awareness.
- Empty your emotions to become aware of your surroundings emotions.
- Easing all your tension and emotional and or mental pressure.
- Create repose and harmony within yourself.

How can we achieve this goal by meditation techniques?

First there definitely is a need to immediately stop any action causing such tumult in your emotions, intellect and actions. This is done by carrying out a peaceful life in harmony with the Divine. To start this, you need to learn again to listen to his Divine and loving guidance. It is all the disharmony in your thoughts, emotions, words and activities that caused the tumult. All the Karma you ever created will collect and be with you, until you start to change your model of life. Serious study of all spiritual laws of nature and practicing and applying them in every days situation of your job, business, family, friends, recreation, politics, and any other situation of your life will be the initial step toward creating peacefulness within.

It makes little sense to meditate in order to create peace, as long as you still persist in creating tumult before and after meditation in your daily living. So expect to modify your living, your inner and outer behaviour while at the same time begin to practice daily meditation and applying or living the spiritual laws of nature in every days situations.

Meditation methods change your focus on God or Love.

Some spiritual traditions exercise meditation by concentrating on void. This is very difficult, because there is no emptiness in the total creation. So these person applying successfully this strategie often are hanging between two centers of consciousness, i.e. between physical and astral body, being neither in physical nor in astral body. Or between astral and causal body, again being neither in astral nor in causal body. You may somehow compare it to the gear of a car. The normal procedure is to move from one center up to the next higher until you are one with God-consciousness. Like switching in a auto from 1st gear to 2nd and 3rd up to the highest one when accelerating. Like in a automobile before switching to the next higher gear, a driver usually accelerates to a certain speed before switching to the next gear. A similar rule works in meditation. Before you can move from one center of consciousness to the next higher one, you may definitely need to increase the vibration of your present consciousness and all its pertaining parts in your spiritual body and its aura. This point is difficult if ever to be achieved when concentrating on emptiness, besides the basic fact that there is absolutely no vacancy at all , so you may waste some time to look for something in-existing. How can you move from one point to another when there is no orientation course, no thrust that keeps you moving in a constant direction with all your spiritual exercise.

Meditation methods with Mantras.

Others are meditating by utilizing a large variety of Mantras, or by using the icon of a Guru or deity to concentrate on. Some Mantras are associated with deities, others with "metaphysical gifts". When you concentrate on Mantras, deities or Gurus, it may cause the result of you becoming one with the object of your concentration. Contemplation as a result of extended concentration is leading to Samyama - becoming one with the target of concentration. If this is what you are exercising, you may understand one day that you have achieved your goal, being in beautiful Worlds and universes - far away from God. That is the reason why in many Holy scriptures there is a warning - you should never have other deities beside me. Striving for unity with any deity may lead to this achievement, but this can and may lead to being far away from the source of all sources for a long time before you may realise how far you are from your intended goal.

The best meditation technique always is to focus on God.

Since the only true spiritual goal can be unity with Supreme Being, the Infinite, the Source of all sources, it should be your true and honest intention to have only God in mind when meditating. God is the Source of all sources, the Infinite beyond any creation and manifestation, thus God has the highest vibration of all. Everything is made of and by God. But any deity is a manifestation, like a highly evolved soul. God the Infinite source of Divine Love in your mind keeps you speeding steadily, while refilling your head with Divine peace and Passion over and over again, dissolving in Divine Love anything else in your aura and mind. When you truly be aware of the principle of Samyama, then you definitely may realize why it is critical to concentrate on God and nothing else.

Acquire God 's pedagogies of love to manage your lifetime in a loving way and enjoy a reincarnation of passion and happiness until one with Our all heavenly father. The sacred science of Jesus of Nazareth Kriya Yoga allows you to reconnect with heavenly father until you achieve unity with our heavenly father . Until you are one with God .
