“The world changes when we change. The world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.” ― Marianne Williamson
Today’s meditation session is titled Miraculous Honor.
Honor, in the context of spirituality, means that we maintain our core integrity as pure awareness under all circumstances. When we meditate on a regular basis, we develop what is known as “witnessing awareness” — the ability of one’s background consciousness to be present and aware while simultaneously the body and mind experience and react to whatever is happening externally. When witnessing, awareness knows itself to be present and conscious, it is honoring itself, valuing itself, and not losing its integrity by identifying with the passing thoughts and feelings of the situation.
In today’s meditation we deepen our experience of witnessing awareness so that after meditation we can remain present with our emotions and our thoughts. Maintaining this present awareness, allows patience, equanimity, compassion, self-worth, and inner freedom to grow in all our relationships.
