Republishing in tribute to Jane Cox, always in our hearts.
Not knowing I would discover how much meditation matters, early last month, I traveled to Sammamish, WA to visit with my daughter, granddaughter and great grandson. When I arrived my daughter had gone to Tennessee to visit with her eldest daughter while my granddaughter and her son had gone to Utah to a wedding. So as the timing worked out, everyone would be gone for a week and I would be alone for solitude, meditation and some work!
This was perfect for me because I was going to attend an online Worldwide Convocation of a Yoga organization that I have belonged to for more than 40 years. I was wondering how I could do it while visiting with them. As we learn in the Master Key Experience (MKE), the Universe gives us what we want and/or need.
I was able to attend all the lectures and meditations, as well as attend all the webinars required to be a guide for the MKE. One of the best things I got out of it was the silence I was able to enjoy between lectures and meditations. There is nothing like being in the silence, feeling the peace and listening to the sound of nature (I call it the “sound of silence”). My daughter has a beautiful yard that has many places to utilize for meditation and being alone. She has no close neighbors, so it feels like you are in the wilderness.
It was really great getting to know myself a little better, knowing that I am never alone, and feeling the connection to all that is.
My Daughter’s Backyard — where meditation matters
I learned during the silence and being by myself that there is no spirituality without heroism. You either grow or you die. The MKE is where I learned to grow. It gives you the tools you need.
It takes you back to school, but this time giving you the tools to use so you learn how to work with the subconscious. MKE teaches you how to replace old habits with new ones, because that is the only way to get rid of a bad habit. And because I’m learning how much meditation matters, I am making it one of my good habits.
You can reject the call to discover and improve yourself, but then you stagnate. MKE teaches us to look within to grow. We are unlike anyone else. Take one thought and dwell on that. Sit with that thought until you get the answer. That is why silence and solitude are so important. The answers come in the quiet.
Even though it’s hard to see, our consciousness is rising. MKE is helping raise the consciousness of those who take it. We need to get more people taking the Hero’s Journey.
