"Gathering the Light" from the Taois...

Over the years I have meditated quite often, that is going into a quiet state and letting thoughts flow by without reacting to them.  After a time the mind gets into a state of openness and is able to receive extraneous informative thoughts, as many of you already know.  This certainly is not a new idea, and it has been known for millennia.  The only problem that arises is the loss of control of what approaches the mind, and  can have undesirable effects.  Now, I take a little time to contemplate for a while on an idea, sort of an incubation period, and then move into a meditative state which usually results in a desirable end.  This acts as a safety device, and allows one to increase spirituality and oneness with the “Source of Creation.”  Our desire is to ascend not descend.  Just some morning thoughts to consider.  Love one another with kindness and tolerance.
