Podcast: 1 Hour, MP3 Format, Free Download What is meditation?  Isn't it the superior way to experience the universe, its external and its inner reality?  To establish a dialogue with the essence of LIFE within and outside.  It's been also said that "meditation is the bread, the fundamental food to reach wisdom".  It's been described as "the highest way of thinking which is to stop thinking". There are as many ways of meditating as people live on earth.  But, are those techniques leading us into a final synthesis to reach enlightenment, illumination? Gnostic Anthropology recommends these two fundamental techniques: Meditation in the annihilation of the ego (unconscious), to transform lead into gold (spiritualizing matter or Alchemy); The Illuminating Void (to experience God's presence), to learn to KNOW our Inner Being (God within and outside) instead of just "believing". One of the strongest limitations to concentrate, to relax, to quiet our mind is the process of thinking.  Isn't thinking, called "logic", the Aristotle's Method (inductive and deductive)?.  This was great a thousand years ago, when humanity lived immersed in an instinctive-era.  When men went to the battlefield carrying heavy metal armours and swords which demanded strong physical
abilities.  The need to develop our inferior- mind, or thinking was then an urgent need.  Today, thousands of years later, thinking is just "the mechanical struggle of the opposites," an unbalanced method to perceive reality.  Scientists with a tridimensional mind, are only able to arrive at hypothesis, or theories based on other theories.  What is needed now is to awaken our "emotional intelligence" (intuition and telepathy) and our "superior intellect" (inspiration, creative willpower and creative imagination). Both kinds of meditation will allow us to awaken our soul-consciousness. Which is higher than the mind, paving the way to reach enlightenment, or illumination.  Experiencing our inner transformation from "lead into gold", which is "Alchemy" itself.  The path taught by the founders of all religions.  Everybody is welcome to join us into walking the path to ascend into the true human-kingdom (to become real homosapiens, or true men with wisdom, consciousness – with loving capabilities).  Today, with our ego very much alive we are just mere intellectual-animals.  The Adams and the Eves, complete humans with 12 senses, are our true ancestors.  Aren't we misplaced? Isn't it time to meditate about it?. E. JIM G. ROSS 2012
