Wakening the Interior Man through contemplation
Contemplation of Scriptures or words of a Saint will bring about the Interior Man
Taking quotes from the scriptures or that of a Saint and repeating them, then allowing oneself time to take them in, reflect on them, then just allow them to take form in our hearts….is how to contemplate.
Here are the words of Paramahansa Yogananda:
Be afraid of nothing,
Hating no one, giving Love to all
Feeling the Love of God
See His Presence in everyone
And having but one desire
For His constant Presence
In the temple of your consciousness
That is the way to live in this world
Those are the words of a saint…Paramahansa Yogananda
If each day of the month you could take a quote of a bona fide Saint or of bona fide scriptures….repeat it continuously to yourself for a time, then allow yourself to take it into your heart, reflect on it, and allow it to take form in your heart…
This practice brings you into the consciousness’ of that Saint or scriptures. Not a bad place to be.
