CHOOSING A TIME AND PLACE
In meditation we should choose a time and place where we will not have the least likelihood of being disturbed, where there is a minimum of noise or light to distract us, and where we can be as comfortable as possible. The body can be a great source of distraction if our thought has to keep returning to it to respond to discomfort or pain or stress. We should develop techniques by which we can put aside our harried thoughts of concern for the conditions in life that are demanding our attention, then we can harness the power in learning, “HOW TO USE THE CREATIVE POWER OF YOUR IMAGINATION IN MEDITATION!”
Through the power of thought, now open an imaginary container on the floor beside you, and place in it each of the pressures, each of the concerns, each of the problems in your life.
Do so with the understanding that when you have finished your time of mediation, you can open the container again and find each of your problems safe and undisturbed. You can, if you choose to, pick them up again and carry on with your concern about them. Once you have placed all of your problems in the container on the floor, take another imaginary container and place it on your lap.
Now I encourage you to let this one, (through the power of your creative imagination), be the one in which you keep the precious dreams toward which you are working. Perhaps in this container you will place the dream of the loving and harmonious relationship that you are working toward with your husband or wife or child, friend or neighbor.
With your imagination, you can hold that dream for a long enough period of time that the infinite Mind of which yours is but an expression can continue to reveal to you the sense of its existence as a reality now. In understanding this concept the truth is now unfolding in your mind on, “HOW TO USE THE CREATIVE POWER OF YOUR IMAGINATION IN MEDITATION! We encourage you to meditate deeply on this lesson and we will provide you with the third and final installment in the morning, which will be title, “EXPERIENCING THE THINGS THAT WE PRAY FOR!” Please return and read all three over and until it becomes as natural to you as walking. We bless this word to you in the name of Jesus, AMEN!
