The Whole Purpose of Meditation

Every thought we have is a stream of energy and intelligence. We know thoughts are energy because they can be measured as electrical impulses via an electroencephalogram (EEG).  And, we know thoughts have intelligence because each one is about something very specific.

Highest Aims

I continue to learn about what exactly my “purpose”, “mission”, or “goal” is in this lifetime. The more I learn, the more it is clear to me that this all mighty purpose of my “self” is more and more fundamental and simple than I can ever expect or plan for it to be. This question is enigmatic and has crossed my mind throughout my adolescence, and young adult years, as I was conditioned to focus on making decisions that would bring me the biggest return on investment and provide the best “karmic” debt payment. As I work on exploring the complexities of this universe, the precepts, enemies of growth, types of doubt, axioms of universal truths, ways to become liberated and ideologies on how to live, I realize that in every moment in time, really, none of that matters. (Kind of like when I realized getting the “A” in college and all those years in school really didn’t matter. It was, instead, the joy I would receive from learning, growing, expanding and creating as a person that would yield the biggest reward and lessons in a scholar’s life.) reikiIt is a guttural feeling that, just like an old-fashion camera takes a snap shot of a specific moment, the gift or presence is truly what we (and I) should aim to submerge in. The constant feeling of bliss in every present moment; that is my current highest aim. Presence without the feeling of lack, but abundance. Presence without craving, attachments, agitation, and avoidance, but of equanimity and Upekkha (max potential and shape of the mind and body). It sounds so delicious, I can taste it. The best part of this specific aim, is that we can all have it. . . And it is free. It is like closing our eyes, tuning into our easy, rhythmic breath, and simply being. Just like heaven.
