Training Your Mind to Think God-Thoughts
For many of us, we equate meditation with that great sculpture The Thinker by Auguste Rodin. But meditation is far from just taking a seat, thinking and doing nothing.

These realities are very real; your Higher Self, other people's Higher Selves, and many high beings live there. Well, if suddenly you become conscious within of something very different and much higher, then whatever it may be, this will be a spiritual experience.
