Space meditation helps you get closer to enlightenment by practicing enlightenment like qualities. For example, you experience God’s love, recognition of perfection, appreciation, quiet amazement, beauty, and others.
You’ve probably read descriptions of enlightenment experiences. You can pave the way by going directly for the experiences. Although this might be a bit like treating effects rather than the cause, it’s a major step in the right direction. It points the way by helping you feel Divine qualities. It relaxes you and helps you feel really good.
As defined here, space meditation involves keeping your eyes open, softening your focus, and being aware of the space around you. Then you imagine the space, and everything in it, as being filled with some Divine Quality.
This helps you dip your toe into a feeling of enlightenment. With repeated practice this experience can become stronger and longer lasting.
This also helps you calm your thinking. It helps you extract yourself from problems. It helps you disidentify with the body.
We tend to get into self-doubt if we’re expected to simply enter some specific state. We might think we can’t do it yet. That’s why these meditations invite you to use your imagination. For example, imagine that the space is filled with God’s love. You don’t have to question yourself about whether or not it’s actually happening. After all, you’re just using your imagination. Right?
The process we use here is totally different from the space meditation where you’re supposed to focus on the space, or gap, between thoughts. That is humanly impossible and could invite someone to invalidate themselves or their abilities.
The recorded meditations help you repeatedly return your focus to the process. With practice you can be in this state all the time.
When you’re new to these exercises, please do not do them while driving.
If the first space meditations are well received, there will be more recordings dealing with specific aspects of life.
