Its progression, to some degree, will correlate to your own because you are an active ingredient in its expansion and evolving purpose.As a registered member of Meditation Life Skills, you have been drawn to this experience with a sense of curiosity and hope, and regardless of the journey that has led you to this specific website and eBook, you are beginning a new journey into the wilderness of emotional self-mastery; energetic transfers; quantum communities; and evidence of the spiritual interconnectedness we all share with everyone and everything in the Universe.The metaphors of journey and wilderness are fitting descriptions for what lies ahead of you. I use these terms because I want you to be aware that this journey departs from the comparatively smooth "pavement" of religion, science, and philosophy. By contrast, when one journeys into the wilderness, movements, by necessity, are more measured as there are no roads that define the path.This is the way of the Self-Ascension Neutral Heart Meditation Technique Guide. The trails are barely visible, yet what draws us is our common recognition that our hearts are the key to navigating the unknown, and in order to truly activate what is within us, we need to step out of our familiar patterns and live from our hearts' sober and higher-dimensional intelligence.This is the journey we are taking, together. I am committed to helping you and there will be others as well. An entire community will be developed in the years ahead and the vision no doubt will evolve a thousand times before we realize what we have created out of a wilderness; out of a simple journey of a collective heart.Thank you for joining us. Practice the principles in the guide everyday as best as you can. In the course of your journey into the wilderness, for they are the only compass you will ever need.</p><p>"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." Anne Frank</p><p>Anne Frank became a remarkably resilient person who knew how to express her heart virtues regardless of circumstance because she connected the virtues of her heart to the purpose of her mission to improve the world. She understood that the virtues of the heart do not require a single coin, or physical skill, or intellectual keenness, or even freedom. All they require is practice.I'm sure you are well aware of the sentiment that in order to change the world or improve it in any meaningful way, you, the individual, must first change yourself. As Mahatma Gandhi </p><p>Self-Ascension Neutral Heart Meditation Technique MeditationLifeSkills.com (Copyrights Reserved Worldwide 2012 and beyond)</p></li><li><p>The Six Heart Virtues: Appreciation, Compassion, Forgiveness, Humility, Valor, and Understanding.</p><p>said, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." This is very true and relates precisely to what we, as practitioners of living from the heart, have undertaken in our journey to emotional self-mastery.In order for humanity to accept or embrace the new constructs of living from the heart and the interconnection of humanity and earth, we, who are drawn to this early on, are called to model this behavior. In effect, exemplify it in our world, and to do so without the accompanying judgment directed to those who do not.As Anne Frank says, there is no need to wait a single moment. It is simply a shift from the murky sweetness of the idealistic heart to the sober-clean qualities of the energetic heart where clarity resides. In this clarity, intuition flows, and this is your higher intelligence connecting to your world. When you bring this intelligence into your world, it appears not because of invitation, invocation, intention, prayer, or demand; it appears because you have shifted into your energetic heart, and you have made a commitment to live from this state.If this shift is taken, your higher intelligence assists and guides you in your practice. The distinctions I make are subtle, but important. Move away from the over-sentimental, the over-caring patterns of the familiar heart. These are the old patterns. The new frequencies of the energetic heartthough hard to describeare allied to concepts like clarity, coherence, precision, clear-headedness, efficiency of flow, intuitive presence, synchronicity, and the ever-present interconnectedness of life.This is the shift in your own world that calls you; to improve yourself and the world in which we live, and to do so now. It is so easy in times of stress or pressure, lack of time or money, or family dysfunction to simply say, "I'll deal with it tomorrow or the weekend." But the nature of living from the heart is that it is only relevant in the now. Its power to transform and heal, to enliven and enlighten, is contained in the flow of emotions that share your now-time. Nobody needs to wait a single moment.</p><p>The Self-Ascension Neutral Heart Meditation Technique</p><p>Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth, "You owe me." Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky. Hafiz</p><p>As practitioners of the Self-Ascension Meditation Guide, our focus is on the expression of these six heart virtues: appreciation, compassion, forgiveness, humility, valor, and understanding. Sometimes, though, the outflow is diminished or our attention wanders and we can find ourselves depleted and discouraged, unable to express or radiate the virtues within us with vitality and genuineness.</p><p>Self-Ascension Neutral Heart Meditation Technique MeditationLifeSkills.com (Copyrights Reserved Worldwide 2012 and beyond)</p></li><li><p>The Six Heart Virtues: Appreciation, Compassion, Forgiveness, Humility, Valor, and Understanding.</p><p>When you feel a bit drained or dispirited, often it is because you feel that the balance between the inflow of love, appreciation, understanding, and forgiveness does not measure up to your outflow. In other words, what we give out to our family, friends, work associates and strangers, seems to be morein some cases, far morethan what we get in return.This perception can rapidly lead to discouragement; a sense that life is not working or is even unfair and unresponsive to our practice of the six heart virtues. There is a technique called the Self-Ascension Neutral Heart Meditation Technique that is an excellent method to refresh and balance your energy system especially when the feelings of depletion and discouragement overtake your expression of the heart virtues in your daily life. </p><p>The First MeditationExperience: The 4,000 year old Zazen - Zen Meditation Technique. </p><p>Three Levels To Choose From.</p><p>Background of Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):This was the meditation technique of Lord Buddha I should have to say no more in order to motivate you to try this meditation. It is one of the most widely used meditations in the world and is the heart of Zen Buddhist teachings. If one was to make a short list of the best meditation techniques, Zazen would most certainly make the top 10 list.</p><p>Tools required for Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):Zafu (traditional Zen Buddhist meditation cushion), Smile Cushion or other firm meditation cushion. Loose comfortable clothing.An alarm clock, stop watch or other time device.Benefits of Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):Primary Benefits: Builds Concentration and Focus.Self Knowledge both, the workings of little self (ego) and awareness of the Big Self (True Divine Nature).CalmnessCompassionSpontaneous Joy</p><p>Self-Ascension Neutral Heart Meditation Technique MeditationLifeSkills.com (Copyrights Reserved Worldwide 2012 and beyond)</p></li><li><p>The Six Heart Virtues: Appreciation, Compassion, Forgiveness, Humility, Valor, and Understanding.</p><p>Secondary Benefits: Improves health and wellbeing.Increases willpower and builds character.Bestows psychic powers.</p><p>Cautions for Practicing Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):There are very few cautions with regard to Zazen practice, but the one I would like to point out has to do with emotional storms. There can be periods of time, either during a single sitting or spanning across several weeks, when emotions you may have suppressed rise up to the surface and force you to deal with them. During these turbulent times, dont exacerbate the issue by chewing on the emotion laden thoughts that come up. Traumatizing yourself in this way has no value. Instead, sit with the emotions and related thoughts without resistance, then let them go and return your awareness to your breath. This emotional cleansing is due to the visibility of the subconscious mind once the conscious mind is quieted by the meditation. In the short term, this can be a difficult time to go though, but in the long term its a necessary and healthy cleansing that will promote greater peace, depth, joy and clarity in your life. </p><p>Guided Basic Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):1) Find a quiet place and sit in a comfortable cross legged position. If using a zafu or similar meditation cushion, sit on the forward third of the cushion. The objective is for your hips to be raised above your knees and to form a three point base with your knees and buttocks touching the floor/cushion. If this position is too difficult to preform, just sit or lie down in a confortable position, you will recieve the same benefits.2) Set your alarm or other time device for 20 minutes.3) Now elongate your spine upwards and to align it with the back of your head, subtly bring your chin back and in like a soldier at attention. There will be a slight inward arch in your lower back.4) Now rock gently from side to side in big arcs, making them smaller and smaller till you drift to a stop. You should find yourself perpendicular to the floor with no tension or pull from either side.5) Have your eyes half open with an unfocused gaze on the floor in front of you. You should be looking down at a 45 degree angle about 2 to 3 feet in front of you. You may also close your eyes if you prefer.6) Bring your hands to your lap and place them in the cosmic mudra. To do this rest your right hand on your lap, then rest your left hand on top of it and have your </p><p>Self-Ascension Neutral Heart Meditation Technique MeditationLifeSkills.com (Copyrights Reserved Worldwide 2012 and beyond)</p></li><li><p>The Six Heart Virtues: Appreciation, Compassion, Forgiveness, Humility, Valor, and Understanding.fingers overlap. Now bring the thumb tips together thus forming an oval frame. (Like you're making the "OK" sign)7) Close your mouth, swallow your saliva creating a slight vacuum and place your tongue against the roof of your mouth. After this point there should be absolutely no more movement of the body. No fidgeting, scratching, shifting nothing be like you are frozen in time.8) Take 5 deep, slow breaths though the nose. This will oxygenate your blood and relax you.9) Now bring you attention to your breath without trying to manipulate it further in any way, just become aware of its flow. Spend a few minutes just observing it intimately till it starts to become regular and relaxed.10) At this point begin counting your breath. Count an inhalation as one, then the exhalation as 2 and continue to count your breaths until you reach 10. At which point return to 1 with the next inhalation. If at any point you get caught in a mental story line and loose your count, gently, without passing any judgment, return to 1 and start over. Thats it, continue for the duration of the meditation.</p><p>Guided Intermediate Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):Follow all the steps for the Basic Zen Meditation Technique, except for the last step a complete inhalation and exhalation cycle should be counted as 1. So you will do 10 full cycles of inhalation and exhalation before returning to 1. You can also increase the time to 30 40 minutes.Guided Advanced Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen): Follow all the steps for the Basic Zen Meditation Technique, except for the last step instead of counting the breaths, just "be the breath". Dont try to jump to this step too soon, first build your concentration and focus. You can also increase the time to 1 hour.Hints and Tips for Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):Do some stretching or Yoga before sitting in zazen. It will help your body adjust better. Be regular, the benefits of this meditation are vast, but they take time to manifest.Secret of Zen Meditation Technique (Zazen):The secret of zazen does not lie in the awareness of the inhalation or the exhalation. It lies in the gap...</p></li></ul>
