From The Truth Journal (April-May 2014) by Roy Eugene Davis:
Many more people are learning to meditate. A full-page article in the November 16, 2013 issue of The Economist, an internationally distributed news magazine, reported many people are being attracted to meditation as a way to function more effectively in an increasingly busy and stressful world. Many individuals and organizations are now actively promoting their forms of meditation.
The dramatic surge of interest that occurred in the 1960’s has spread into mainstream western society. It is common to hear many medical doctors and other health professionals recommend meditation to their patient-clients. It is taught in healthy spas and other wellness centers. Thousands of people meditate privately at home and report they are healthier and happier than when they didn’t meditate. Meditation is also being taught to men and women whose military experiences resulted in severe psychological trauma.
Mindfulness meditation is one of the forms of practice publicized in the media. A more accurate description is attentiveness meditation. One sits still, disinterested in thoughts or other perceptions or sensations. When mental activity becomes subtle, awareness becomes clear. When subliminal impulses that stimulate the mind stop, absolute (pure) consciousness can prevail.
One key to skillful meditation practice is to do it regularly with alert attention until a positive response is obvious, such as deep relaxation, peace of mind, clarity of awareness, absence of anxiety, improved mental and intellectual abilities, an enhanced sense of overall well-being, or useful insights. Spiritual awakening and growth is naturally experienced with a regular, effective meditation routine.

When you have a powerful desire or want something strongly, it can color your perceptions. It changes what you are looking at so it appears the way you want it to. Sometimes you want something so badly you bend the universe to your reality.
Reality can be a very subjective experience.
There is a distinction between wanting to see the truth – seeing the way life is and your perceptions. One is objective and the other is subjective. When you are present and without an agenda, it is easier to observe and see clearly.
When you have a strong desire, it is more challenging as you are looking through a biased filter and your thoughts and feelings color your reality.
Use your heart and intuition to see more clearly.
It has been said prayer is you talking to God and intuition is God or the universe talking to you. Either way it is a beautiful communication.
Make sure the people you keep close to you are honest and sincere. Every moment is precious and can be used to encourage and uplift yourself and others.
Use your time and energy optimally and wisely.

Life presents you with the exact lesson you need to learn every moment. It requires awareness, acceptance and discernment to receive it.
There is a constant rhythm to life, an ebb and flow of energy. Going with life’s flow allows you to receive and not waste your energy resisting the moment.
Sometimes it is not always clear what the lesson is or why it is happening. This is when trust and faith and proper principles are so important.
Whatever is happening is what must be happening. Be willing to ask for guidance from the universe – ask for divine wisdom.
Continue to feel the flow in your life and act appropriately. Go when the path is open and clear and wait or be still when the path is closed.
Confusion is a signal that you are not clear and the timing is not yet appropriate to move forward. The ego loves to be in control and force its way in all situations. However, acting aggressively usually stirs up a lot of hot air and more conflict.
It is the gentle and consistent wind blowing in the same direction that creates the greatest change. In the words of Gandhi, “In a gentle way we can shake the world.”
There are times when you are challenged by people or circumstances. No matter how challenging life appears there is always a solution. Often some form of forgiveness is appropriate.
You must be patient and let the universe make the first move. It will show you the best way out of trouble to safety and success if you let it guide you. Allow for help from wise and supportive friends and advisers.
Good things are coming your way…. stay open, receptive and positive – quiet inner strength.
Have a healthy and prosperous week!

From my wonderful teacher, Roy Eugene Davis – www.csa-davis.org:
Your highest spiritual good prevails when you are always conscious of your true nature as an immortal, spiritual being in relationship with the Infinite. At the innermost level of your being you are whole, pure, serene and knowledgeable. Allow your innate qualities and capacities to emerge and be fully actualized.
Your highest mental good prevails when you think rationally, your intellectual powers are fully developed and all life-enhancing desires and intentions produce or attract ideal events and circumstances.
Your highest emotional good prevails when you can view thoughts, memories and objective conditions with dispassionate objectivity.
Your highest physical good prevails when you are radiantly healthy and effectively functional.
Your highest circumstantial good prevails when environmental conditions are ideal and abundant material resources that enable you to be comfortable, secure and easily accomplish purposes of value are always readily available.
Your highest good prevails in relationships when they are wholesome, harmonious and mutually supportive. Merely wanting or hoping to have your highest good does not produce positive results. To have it, claim it as your own and do what is necessary to be able to have it. You can do it.
“Yes, I know what is for my highest good, I prepare myself to have it and I thankfully claim it as my own.”
