Let’s prepare ourselves for meditation, take a seat and relax yourself, and as you are easing your body into that comfortable chair or bench at this time. Take a deep breath in, and allow that breath to fill up your lungs with the cool and refreshing air of the Heavenly Spirit, and then exhale slowly; take another deep cleansing breath in, breathing in all of the love, and all of the loving ions that are swirling around us at this time into our lungs, and hold that breath for a moment, and then let it out, letting out all of the tension, all of the stress, and all of the unpleasantness that may be with you at this time.
And as we continue to relax and to enjoy the warm and comfortable seat that we are in at this time, lets clear our minds from any thoughts and allow ourselves to close our outer eyes, if we feel comfortable to do so, and then with our mind’s eye let’s take this time to visualize for ourselves a beautiful lush paradise right in front of us. And in this paradise we have found an inviting sandy path just waiting for us to be taken on a little walk with the Heavenly Spirit, hand in hand we go, as we enjoy the vista of all of the lush flora and fauna, and the beautiful trees that seem that they have just leaped out from the soil of Mother Earth to see and bear witness to the Heavenly Father’s presence at this time.
In the close distance we begin to hear the sounds of water, and just right ahead of us is the most majestic and royally bursting waterfall we have ever witnessed with our eyes; it is so beautiful with the roaring of the water and the beautiful mists of water that are falling down toward our faces as drops of the most delectable dew we have ever experienced.
This is the loving water of the Heavenly Spirit showering us with all of the love and all of the amazing wetness of a humid summer day that has been drenched with all of the moisture that could have been squeezed out just for us, just for the cooling down period that we have so needed from the warm and toasty sun.
As we continue to relax on the chair or bench that we are sitting on, we begin to feel a calmness within our minds that is so needed at this time. This calmness allows you to feel a precious moment of quietness, a feeling that you have not experienced before, but something that you have only heard about. But now with all that is surrounding you and all of the love of the Heavenly Spirit giving you this amazing moment in time to just relax, and to feel what surrendering yourself to the silence really feels like. Being able to sit and hear the pure silence, to listen for the smallest voice to talk with you, the slightest sound and for a moment there is peace, your mind has stopped racing, your breathing has allowed your heart to slow down to a slow rhythmic pace, and you are experiencing a time of quietness with the Heavenly Spirit and all of nature.
This period of surrendering yourself to the silence has allowed you to feel warm and toasty inside, and as you continue to relax and to feel nothing but a warm glow, a warm loving glow within your being; I want you to remember this affirmation and repeat it to yourself silently, “I surrender myself to the silence of all that is good and holy, I surrender myself to the silence to wait and hear the pure blessing of this moment, I surrender myself to the silence of love engulfing me in all that is good and all that is pure in this world, I surrender myself to the silence”.
We say again to ourselves silently “I surrender myself to the silence of all that is good and holy, I surrender myself to the silence to wait and hear the pure blessing of this moment, I surrender myself to the silence of love engulfing me in all that is good and all that is pure in this world, I surrender myself to the silence,” and as we go into the silence of this moment at this time,” continue to remember these words as you go into the silence.
Yes, yes, yes, to surrender yourself to the silence allows you to quiet your outside world, and to just sit and listen to your inside world, to sit and listen to all that is good and pure, and to slow down and take a breath, as you are releasing into the Universe your true purpose at this time; to be still, to be alive, and to be loved by the Heavenly Spirit. Take this time to remember the beautiful paradise, take this time to remember the roaring waterfall, and take this time to remember to surrender yourself to the blessings of pure silence, of pure love, and of pure reverence that all that is needed to be done will be done, but right now, you are surrendering yourself to the silence, surrender yourself, surrender yourself, surrender yourself to the silence, and so it is. Amen and amen, God bless you all
