CBS Healthwatch recently carried an article about the benefits of Meditation. It was also mentioned on their morning show that brain scans have shown a definite increase in brain activity during meditation. They have indicated that meditation may be valuable for blocking pain, recovering memory loss and may have many other benefits for us. The Council, William LePar’s spiritual source, has been a strong advocate of meditation for more than 40 years. I think that you will be surprised at the power that meditation offers to us. Below is just one example of their thoughts on the subject.

The Council: Actually, meditation is the best overall discipline for spiritual growth, because there you not only learn to discipline the body but you learn to discipline the thoughts and once you gain greater control over your thoughts then you gain greater control over your exterior being allowing the higher self then to work more actively and more directly through its temple or its tool.

Everyone should meditate at least once a day. There should be no exceptions. That is ideal. Now, if you do not, that does not mean that you are going to fail in life. It simply means that in most cases you will probably not have the ease that you could have, and when one meditates, one does not necessarily always have to meditate on spiritual concepts. Simply meditation for meditation's sake can be helpful in that it is a practiced discipline. It is a control of one's self. If nothing else, it releases the tension that all of you live under, and in that sense alone is beneficial to the physical body. So you cannot lose with meditation. There is absolutely everything to gain and nothing to lose.

If we were to make a suggestion on meditation, we would suggest that a novice learn to meditate for no less than twenty minutes to thirty minutes in the beginning. Once they become proficient or efficient at relaxing the body and entering meditation and when they have gained enough control over the exterior portion of meditation, that is the relaxation of the body and focusing the mind then, that period of time can be reduced. So, as you become more efficient or proficient in meditation, if it is for just a general sense, let us put it this way, if there is no particular goal, it is quite possible to meditate a few minutes in the morning, a few minutes midday or during your day, and a few minutes in the evening. That gives the body three periods of relaxation a day and during those periods of relaxation, the body can ward off minor possible physical problems.

If the people of your society would learn to relax totally, you would eliminate most of the cancer because one of the main triggering devices for cancer is stress and tension. Give yourself a pill three times a day and let that pill be a few minutes of complete relaxation through meditation and you will reduce your potential for cancer by possibly 75%. Then those of you who must drink this awful stuff that you call soda pop and those of you who must smoke and you can turn yourselves into living chimneys and fizzling bottles of sweet water all you care to and you will not have to worry about ailments of cancer, let us put it that way. Now, do not leave here thinking or missing the point we are trying to make. We used an exaggerated example to show you the potentials of meditation. We have not suggested that you should meditate five minutes three times a day and then indulge yourselves in all kinds of things that pleases your whims. So, be forewarned, we have not said indulge yourself and meditation will be the cure-all. What we have said that meditating three times a day could reduce potential dangers by approximately 75% for each of you depending again on your lifestyle, the karmic situation that you are dealing with. If you were to combine meditation with the proper diet, again we are not talking about faddish diets, we are talking about good, wholesome diets, you would definitely be a much healthier individual, and as a much healthier individual, you become a much healthier community.

My final comments. Please remember what The Council said in the above paragraph. Meditation COULD reduce the dangers depending on many factors. However, even with that caveat, meditation does offer us many potential benefits with a little effort on our part.

Ofcourse meditation can help cancer, but the person who have not meditated yet before or for whom the meditation is new.

Sounds like: Somebody is planning to trench a well, to take out water, as his/her house is on fire..... hah.
