Forget to Forget
March 28, 2010
Remember to forget, but don’t forget to forget! Most of all don’t forget to remember. Remember the thoughts and moments to bring joy and positivity. Life is best when reset to begin each day fresh and unencumbered by the trials of the past. The negatives need positive energy to dilute their clouding each moment. Remember to chip away at negatives and allow them to lose energy. Never forget to remember the good memorable moments letting the best forgotten moments have less influence.
The following is a simple meditation exercise to reset the mind and heart:
Lie down on your back. Keep your eyes closed and breathe in, visualizing great light
entering from your head into your body, as if a sun has just risen close to your head – golden light pouring into your head. Be hollow and the golden light is pouring into your head, and going, going, going, deep, deep, and going out through your toes. When you breathe out, visualize another thing: darkness entering through your toes, a great dark river entering through your toes, coming up, and going out through the head. Do slow, , so you can
visualize. Go very slowly.
Breathing in, let golden light come into you through your head, the golden light is waiting to cleanse your whole body and will make it absolutely full of creativity. This is male energy. Then when you exhale, let darkness, the darkest you can conceive, like a dark night, riverlike, come from your toes upwards – this is feminine energy, it will sooth you, it will make you receptive, and calm you, it will give you rest – and let it go out of the head. Then inhale again, and golden light enters in. Do it for twenty minutes early in the morning.
And the second best time is when you are going back to sleep, at night. Lie down on the bed, relax for a few minutes. When you start feeling that you are wavering between sleep and waking, just in that middle, start the process again and continue for twenty minutes. If you fall asleep doing it, it is best, because the impact will remain in the subconscious and will go on working.
This meditation will reduce what needs to be forgotten and bring light to that which is best to remember. The mind and heart control whether one ignores to put them on a positive, aware track or just leaves them to their own helter skelter choice. Love is meditation that protects one in life’s challenges and opens the awareness to the best paths to follow. Why forget to forget what needs forgetting? Arhata
