The Higher Perspective Through Meditation

Meditation is not about cutting off from your emotions, feelings or needs of your body.  In the meditative state you can create conscious control; and balance through awareness.

As you grow in your path of self-development and spiritual unfolding your consciousness evolves to create positive control in your life.  Sometimes your mind is going to wander, and you need or want to focus. Sometimes your body is going to be fidgety.
It’s like being on an airplane and you “feel” like running up and down the cabin because the flight has been to long. Perhaps you stretch your legs…I don’t think you would run up and down the aisle because your body wanted to.

Now, you could bring this feeling into your meditation practice by acknowledging the “feeling” of wanting to run and then consciously bringing your attention back to your breath.  You could also create a “mental vacation” and visualize yourself running, and the feeling of the freedom of running and feel that in your body and feel more refreshed and relaxed much more empowering is this?

You are now bringing conscious choice into this little situation. The practice of meditation and living in the meditative state allows more conscious choice and awareness in your life; as well as in all you do.  It is aligning to the Universal Flow through your personal flow that you begin to feel and see the "bigger picture" of your life and life cycles.  
 
In the meditative state your flow becomes Divine Flow.  They are one and the same, just a different extension of the same Universal Energy. There becomes less resistance to what is; and more understanding of what is, and a natural alignment to this in ways that bring more ideal situations; or perceptions of situations.
 
We can't get the higher perspective, unless we move beyond the view of extreme polarity and myopic focus.  The Universal View holds the awareness and experience of all sides. In meditation we leave room for this understanding and for the working out of this by Universal Forces.  The Universe always trends towards what is most life enhancing, even if we don't yet see or feel it personally. 

Imagine applying this higher, more expanded perspective to all areas of your life?
What would this feel like to you, to have this empowerment of conscious choice?
