IGNORE THE MONKEY – TAME THE HEDGEHOG
'Training' or 'Taming the monkey mind', is an expression often used in meditation circles. Let's ignore the monkey mind for a while, and try taming the hedgehog.
It's necessary to focus intensively on God, but throughout evolution the combination of broadband awareness with any focused activity was fundamental to the balance in life. I'm suggesting we have lost this balance in life, in all that we do, including the search for Oneness or God.
Broadbanding is another way of using the senses. Its another way of sensing - experiencing - and understanding God.
Broadband sensing is a practical, and natural way of starting the 'oneness-process'.
Even for those people who have no spiritual belief, it is a first step to feeling connected, balanced, and even contented. And for those who believe in a God, we can make the first step by being now, silencing our thoughts, and feeling intimately connected with our immediate environment. It's not eternity, but maybe it's a door.
How to Worship and Further Considerations
Disciples of truth and peace, usually focus on something pure and holy - with our senses opened or closed we focus on images, mantras, or prayers. But there are so many ways of worshipping God, ... gardening and nursing ... almost anything can be used as a form of worship. Religion, Godheads and Beliefs are such strong focus points, and worship is such an intense form of focusing, should that be balanced by broadbanding in some way?
Maybe we just need to be somewhere nice periodically, (obviously it's easier to do away from machines), and sense God in a broadband way, - manifest in our immediate environment.
Focusing is necessary - especially with any higher aims and purposes, but then it seems especially important to remain open minded. Higher aims and beliefs can so easily become closed minded, and even if they are right and good, if they are closed minded they are defeating what they hope to acheive.
The Present Bottom Line
The present bottom line for me seems to be: Even though we can ask this great energy for help anytime – it can't take care of every individual part of the big picture, all the time.
Lots can only be done by "the grace of God". And if we want help or forgiveness, then we need that from something greater than us. But to be still inside and now, and stop all the pointless abstract thinking, that's up to us to do. And the easiest, most direct way to do this, is by going broadband.
