What is Jewish meditation?
- Jewish meditation is about accessing one's own Divinity.
- It's about experiencing the Prime Soul that lies within the soul, simultaneously sublimating baser impulses and secondary learnt natures.
- It is an enjoyable life-time experience, learning experientially the accessibility of G-d at all times.
Jewish meditation differs from other schools of meditation in aim and purpose. Though meditating brings peace of mind, better health and a host of other benefits, in Jewish meditation these are considered side-benefits. Even accessing one's own divinity is not the purpose of Jewish meditation. Its sole function is to realise and consciously connect to the Infinite Source, the mind and soul to delight in G-d's unity. This is not one's 'higher self' but the Infinite Being, Whom we call G-d.
Because G-d is everywhere, we don't need special 'tools' or images to access Him, we can speak to Him whensoever we wish. Speaking to G-d is a particularly useful type of meditation; inbuilt into this simple method is the constant holding of one's focus, a prime ingredient of meditation. A more advanced method is thinking on G-d, communing with one's mind; this great method will place you in a higher state almost instantaneously.
To know more about Jewish meditation, its' theory, methods and varied exercises, this site offers 'Eye to The Infinite', a book that delves deep into the metaphysical, yet using simple language that brings lofty kabbalistic concepts down to earth. Easy to understand, it teaches both preliminary and advanced methods.
