Letters on Occult Meditation - Letter II - The Importance of Meditation

June 3, 1920

  1. It results in egoic contact and alignment.
  2. It brings about a state of equilibrium.
  3. It stabilizes vibration.
  4. It assists in a transference of polarization. [9]

Let me this morning give you some more thoughts on the subject of meditation; they will bear somewhat on the matter given yesterday, and on the 16th ultimo.

Fundamentally, meditation is to assist alignment and so permit of contact with the Higher Self; hence its institution. I would, in order duly to elucidate, take up the study of this topic under the following heads:

  • The Importance of Meditation.
  • Points considered when assigning a Meditation.
  • The use of the Sacred Word in Meditation.
  • Dangers to be avoided in Meditation.
  • The use of Form in Meditation.
  • The use of Color and Sound in Meditation.
  • Access to the Masters through Meditation.
  • Future Schools of Meditation.
  • Purification of the Vehicles.
  • The Esoteric Life of Service.

Let us today take up the consideration of the first point: - What makes Meditation of importance?

The emphasis upon the importance of meditation follows naturally upon the realization by the student of the absolute necessity for the domination of the Personality by the Ego.

Man at this time is engaged in many pursuits and through the force of circumstances he is polarized entirely in the lower self, that polarization being in either the emotional or mental body. One point of interest I would indicate: - as long as the polarization is purely [10] physical or purely emotional, no need for meditation is ever felt. Even when the mental body is active, no urge arises until the man has run through many changes and many lives, has tasted the cup of pleasure and of pain through many incarnations, has sounded the depths of the life lived entirely for the lower self and found it unsatisfying. Then he begins to turn his thought to other things, to aspire to that which is unknown, to realize and sense within himself the pairs of opposites, and to contact within his consciousness possibilities and ideals undreamed of hitherto. He has come to a point where success, popularity and diverse gifts are his, and yet from their use he derives no content; always the urge within persists until the pain is so severe that the desire to reach out and up, to ascertain something and someone beyond, overcomes all obstacles. The man begins to turn within and to seek the source from whence he came. Then he begins to meditate, to ponder, to intensify vibration until in process of time he garners the fruits of meditation.
