How to Meditate


Sit down. Sit still and upright. Close your eyes lightly. Sit relaxed but alert. Silently, interiorly begin to say a single word. We recommend the prayer-phrase, ‘Maranatha’. Recite it as 4 syllables of equal length. Listen to it as you say it, gently but continuously. Do not think or imagine anything (and have no expectations). If thoughts and images come, these are distractions at the time of meditation, so keep (gently) returning to simply saying the word.
