Insight Meditation is Self Energy Healing
Meditation will improve posture by straightening the spinal alignment
Every serious student of meditation would be wise to have a correct concept for the purpose and function of meditation practice. There are only two paths in life. The first path or ego approach is to run around chasing the illusion enjoying the glamour of sensation.
This naturally leads to the energy state of reduced soul energy flow with a contracted twisted spinal alignment of the body with reduced function. The second path or soul approach is to sit still in order to escape the illusion.
In meditation you practice detached observation of sensation with no particular attachment. Naturally leads to the energy state of increased soul energy flow with an expanded straightened spinal alignment of the body. With improved posture this results in improved metabolic function or health.
Increased soul energy flow progressively removes the sediments of crystallization or resistance. Meditation is a progression from rigidity into flexibility on all levels of your being mental, emotional and physical.
Whenever you meditate your soul energy flow increases or speeds up and whenever you stop meditating your soul energy flow slows down. Understanding this aspect explains why any progress you have successfully made during meditation practice is easily reversible, during those periods of meditation abstinence.
Ten day meditation Course
One ten-day meditation course correctly practiced will enable you to make a significant improvement in your stage of progression or ability. After your course you practice one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening every day. Certainly this will enable you to maintain your stage of meditation progression but it will result in very little overall improvement or progression.
Accordingly this explains why it is better to do a ten-day course every month for four months; rather than to do a ten-day course every year for four years!
Your focus for meditation ability needs to be on doing continuous courses until the stage of continuous meditation ability has been achieved. To become aware of the soul energy flow and hold your awareness within it results in being able to meditate continuously with continuous dissolving of crystallization.
Only at night when you sleep does your body rest to remove the stirred up impurities and further soften the linings of the energy channels in order for meditation the next day to expand the channels even further.
Only continuous meditation enables possibility of enlightenment
While you are practicing continuous meditation you will achieve only progression in meditating ability. With no reversal of results due to soul energy flow slowing down! When this point is reached you no longer need the initial strict protocol any longer.
Because you now have the ability to meditate in all conditions. You have now begun the dual life of the outer everyday life and the inner meditative life all at the same time. No one practicing meditation at the level of a one ten-day course every year with two hours each day only will ever achieve enlightenment.
Only meditators with the ability to meditate continuously will ever have any chance to achieve enlightenment. During meditation at times you will experience what is called a mini enlightenment experience or Bungarelli; which is a larger than usual influx of soul energy flow coming down from your Over-soul.
This experience is identical to the enlightenment experience with one small difference. This difference is the degree of resistance in your body. With the mini enlightenment experience the resistance pulls up the influx of energy short.
While with enlightenment it is a complete experience due to the resistance having been previously removed. Enlightenment is the final dissolution and removal of the last remaining specks of resistance in your being. Once enlightenment has been achieved then reversal of meditation progress is no longer applicable. You are now truly free.
