The Heart Becomes the Meditation Room

Written by Master Charles Cannon

“The heart becomes the meditation room.”
                                             Zen Saying

The meditation room is a sacred place. Therein we experience meditative balance and proportional wholeness and fulfillment.  As beginning meditators we associate our meditative experience with our meditation room.

As the meditator’s journey progresses… we discover that the true meditation room is the metaphoric heart as the source of our being.  It is the most sacred place… the source point… wherein we experience our true nature as blissful consciousness.  It is the true meditative place wherein we experience wholeness and fulfillment.

The meditation room is the objective polarity of our relative reality and the heart is the subjective polarity.  As individuated consciousness evolves… objective yields to subjective… and the heart-field becomes our dominant focus in meditation.  In this understanding and experience… we are always meditating since the heart-field is with us wherever we are.  Thus we enjoy the ever-increasing constancy of holistic experience.

This week… cultivate wakefulness of your heart-field.  It is the center of your being… the source point of your consciousness.  It is the ultimate sacred place.  When wakeful of it… you are meditating in the true meditation room.
