Meditation is the key to knowing yourself. Meditation leads you within to discover yourself, the spirit, and your relationship with the Cosmic consciousness. Meditation offers a path to self-discovery. This quiet inner focus allows you to know and be yourself, the spirit, a reflection of God.
One night recently, I walked outside and gazed at the full moon in all of her glory. My immediate realization was that I can be like the moon reflecting the sun. I am spirit and can reflect God. This does not require any effort, work, specific behavior, or other physical phenomenon. Reflection of the Divine does require choice and self-knowledge. Meditation helps create a clear reflection because it allows you to quiet the physical noise and be the spiritual light that you are. Meditation helps you heal and cleanse so you can reflect God rather than mirroring your physical world.
All of us can choose to reflect the light of God in our lives. Meditation helps us awaken to what is and how to heal in order to create a clear reflection. Then, like the moon reflecting the light of the sun, we can be still and reflect the light of God. Turn within to you, a spark of the Divine, and reflect the bright light to the world.
