A lesson in Energy from Merging with Siva - An Upadesha given by Bodhinatha on 02 July 2011 Gurudeva pointed out that consistent meditation impacts on the states of mind (instinctive, intellectual, superconscious, etc. Energy flows freely through various states of mind and the key to controlling that energy is through consistent meditation. Daily vigil and sadhana at the same time is beneficial to our spiritual progress. The flow of energy can also be controlled by the type of activities we do daily. Consistent vigil, sadhana and meditation awakens the soul qualities or refined qualities within us.
