Giten Heart Meditation:
Love, Acceptance and Silence
– Periphery and Being
Sit or lie comfortably, close your eyes and feel the heart and the area around the chest.
Feel that the heart is filled filled with great peace.
When the body is relaxed, automatically a peace happens in the heart. The heart becomes silent, relaxed and harmonious.
Love arises from the heart. When you are in love, you are filled with peace. When you are not in love, you are disturbed.
You can do two things to achieve love: You can search for love outside of yourself through an outer partner. Then you will sometimes will find love and peace, but it will also bring conflict, frustration, anger, sorrow and disappointment, because you can only meet in certain moments in love and peace with the outer partner.
The other way is to not try to find love and peace through an outer partner, but to find love and peace directly – and this is what the Giten Heart Meditation is all about – and your life will be filled with love and peace.
This love is not dependent on anybody, it is not possessive.
First become established in the love and peace on your own. Then you are independent, and then love is not a need. Then love becomes a giving, rather than a dependency.
When you feel this love and peace, you are further away from the periphery, and you come in contact with your inner center. In society and in the streets, the noises do not disturb you. The noise in the street, deepens your silence.
This silence comes because you have retracted from the periphery to the center, to the inner being.
The heart is naturally the source of love and peace, of silence. You are simply coming to the inner source, which is always available within.
Try this heart meditation, for 10 minutes when you wake up, and for 10 minutes before you go to sleep.
The world will look different, because you look at it with different eyes.
People will behave differently with you, because to every relationship you contribute with something. When you are filled with love and peace, people will behave differently with you. They will be more loving, kind and open. Whenever you are peaceful, people will come closer to you. When you are disturbed, every one is repelled, but whenever you are peaceful, every one wants to be close, because this peace radiates around you.
