Meditation 22

A Heart Meditation

(Volume 1 - Page 410)

I will now give you a very brief meditation. I will ask you, also, to cease meditating in the head and for a while to meditate in the heart, remembering that the heart center is between the shoulder blades and not in the physical heart. Do not, however, permit yourself to dwell upon the fact of the centers or their locality. Simply drop your mental intensity and center your consciousness lower in the upper part of the body. Do not analyse the situation, or the location or the purpose or the why and the wherefore too much.

1. Imagine yourself as the soul, using the lower man as an instrument.

2. Imagine the soul as working through and energising the center of love in your being. Relax then and sink down into the soul consciousness which is love. Let love be the keynote of your meditation.

3. Then pour out love:

a. Upon your immediate family circle.

b. Upon those with whom you associate in your social life.

c. Upon your group brothers.

d. Upon the New Group of World Servers.

e. Upon the world.

You will note how this involves a steadily imagined establishment of consciousness, in love. Do this sequentially, quietly, and definitely, with no hurry.

4. Then ponder for the next six months upon the following seed thoughts:

First month............ Love—"I tread the Way of Love. That Love irradiates my life."

Second month....... Understanding—"The way of Love is the lighted Way."

Third month......... Integration—"The way of Love leads to the Presence of the Self. That Self am I."

Fourth month......... Contact—"I see that Presence as myself. I merge myself in Light."

Fifth month............ Service—"The sons of men must all be led to tread the Way of Love."

Sixth month........... The Plan—"The Plan for man has three great goals. The revelation of love; the

        illumination of the mind; the evocation of the will."
