THE PURPOSE OF MEDITATION IS TO SHUT OUT THE EGOS WORLD SO THAT WE EXPERIENCE OTHER WORLDS

What exactly is the purpose of meditation, what is the big deal made about it all about? Surely there is a reason why Orientals meditate? The purpose of meditation is to get rid of the ego so as to reach God.

The ego, normal or grandiose is like a sword we use to keep out the penetration of other words into our awareness; the ego is a block to the awareness of other worlds; the ego is a veil covering other worlds.

We designed the ego to enable us be aware of our world of separation, space and time and not recognize that there are other worlds. Other worlds exist where we see our present egos world.

The purpose of meditation is to remove the veil over the other worlds, to silence the ego and its ceaseless chattering that keeps us in this world of delusion. In meditation we make our minds silent until our minds break through and experience other worlds.

When the ego mind is shut down one breaks through to other worlds, first to the world of light forms that the Holy Spirit has already remade from the egos world (with everything in the egos world in it but all in light forms) and ultimately we reach the formless unified world of God (unified consciousness, wave of endless spiritual light).

The ego and mental disorders are means of preventing the penetration of the Holy Spirit into our current ego thinking and behaving; when the Holy Spirit tries to break into our awareness the ego feels threatened and doubles or triples its efforts to make us think and live in the ego; when God comes close to us our thinking becomes obsessive and our behavior becomes compulsive, all meant to keep us in the egos world.

We must meditate daily for, at least, an hour. Sitting quietly and closing our eyes enables us to shut out stimuli from the egos world and shut down our constant ego jabbering so that we become aware of the Holy Spirit's world, become aware of our remade self in light, the Christ self and ultimately become aware of our formless self in God.

In ones day to day life one must stop thinking, talking and behaving from the ego left mind and keep quiet instead of talking from the ego; one must only talk from ones right mind, that is, from the Holy Spirit and one's real self that is not sleeping and dreaming, the Christ. If one does so one becomes calm and peaceful even in one's body.

Do meditators actually shut down their ego thinking and escape from this world and reach other worlds, such as the world of light forms and, ultimately, reach God?

Why don't we find out by meditating and living from our loving right minds? Let us give it one month of committed effort and if nothing happens then we call it quits and move on. But before we move on we ought to give it a trial, give it our all. Let us meditate one hour in the morning and one hour every evening and see what happens.
