While shaping a pot, the potter needs to work on the clay while the potters wheel moves fast.
The Earth revolves on its axis is called as a day. In case of human being’s spiritual journey it is equal to one life lived as human being. Each revolution of the Earth around the Sun is called as a year. In spiritual journey it is equivalent to reaching to the core of your being and completing the cycle life and death of the nature. Once the cycle is completed one is free from it also, like a drop of water becomes free from water cycle once it becomes Pearl.
Spiritual journey is also like giving a shape to your inner being. Each time a potter is placing clay on the potter’s wheel it is like given opportunity to live one human life on this planet. And one has to work on shaping the clay of one’s inner being while the wheel of worldly life keeps moving at fast speed.
While the body is interested in fast movement of wheel with the help of desires, the soul or consciousness or aatmgyan is found by making dedicated efforts in giving shape to the clay at the same time.
Whenever one faces a setback in material world it is due to his attention is totally lost towards shaping the clay of his being. So one has to introspect after the setback to regain the lost momentum in inner journey.
Awareness meditation is the way worked for me, may be you too find it suitable otherwise Dynamic meditation is for most of the people. There are 110 other meditation techniques discovered by Indian Mystic Gorakhnath about 500years before and further modified by Osho that one can experiment and the suitable one could be practiced in routine life.
My experiences may be of your help in taking only one step. Because everyone has to move forward alone, this is the nature of this journey.
In my life mindfulness or awareness meditation helped miraculously. Apart from that living a simple, authentic and totality in life is very helpful even when we are serving people around us with great love and care without discrimination.
