Spiritual Health: Meditation for Power

April 11th, 2022

Spiritual health is power. This is vital to holistic health. And it has a lot to do with meditation. Meditation is the time you spend feeding your spirit with quality experience, not just quality information. Your entire life can be one whole quality experience for your spirit. When this happens, your spirit gets quality feeding and you get tremendously empowered. Nothing can beat you.

Meditation is oriental. If you are oriental, the history of your culture is likely to be embellished with instances of meditation. Different people in the Orient do their meditations differently.

2. Relax and empty yourself. Jesus emptied himself and took the form of a slave. Emptiness is vital so God can fill you with himself, 100 percent.

3. Think of nothing. Just enjoy the experience of God. Listen, respond, absorb, and enjoy. Open up your spirit. Be changed.

4. Radical transformation is the real fruit of meditation for power. You should be transformed to the image of the One from whom you derive the experience. Without this, there’s no real power.
