“It is the higher power which does everything, and the man is only a tool. If he accepts that position, he is free from troubles.” — Ramana Maharshi
Today’s meditation session is The Power of Higher Consciousness.
In today’s meditation, we look at how we relate to a higher power of life which we may refer to as God, universal intelligence, consciousness, or the higher self. There are many words for this unbounded awareness, but it all comes down to it being the experience of our essential nature. Many spiritual traditions understand the relationship of our individuality to this higher power as devotion or surrender, because we are letting go of the limitations of our isolated, separate ego self to gain the unlimited strength and power of our higher self. But this process of expansion of awareness into deeper awakening is not an effort of will power or emotional fervor. It is simply awareness being aware of itself as it moves into deeper levels of self-realization.
