I like to sit quietly. Now I reflect on the sweet practice of closing the eyes and focusing the eyeballs on the third eye point between the eyebrows. This stimulates the optic nerves which send signals to the pituitary and pineal glands. Over time, daily sessions of concentrating on keeping the eyes steadily focused on this brow point strengthens the intuition. That is something radiant to celebrate.
Here are some more radiant words from The Radiance Sutras, or The Vijnana Bhairava Tantra by Lorin Roche.
Rest the attention easily in the forehead, in the eye that is made of light. Cherish the delicate energies shimmering there.
Close your eyes for a few minutes and focus on your brow point. Please know, peaceful Reader, that I am bowing to the delicate energies you notice shimmering there. Sat Nam!
Please join me in practicing this meditation for 11 minutes for 40 days: The Meditation to Develop the Radiant Body.
Question for reflection over the next 40 days:
What would I say, write, or think if I knew that whatever I say, write, or think must happen?

“The mind is above time and space. If you decide not to complain, the mind will immediately compensate you with intuition.” ~Yogi Bhajan
Besides, intuition feels so much better than complaining. There’s so much too complain about: I’m underpaid. The weather’s bad. I don’t get enough sleep. I don’t get enough love. I’m surrounded by stupid people.
Such complaints are not worthy of diamond mind energy. When salary is too low, revel in the expertise and heart you devote to your craft. When the weather makes us physically uncomfortable, compose a song. When sleep deprived, commit to exploring and discovering the space within you where there are wells of boundless pranic energy. When love starved, give more love away. When surrounded by stupid people, bathe them in the light of your mind.
Day Thirty Nine
Beloved Everywhere, This is my conscious prayer.
May the human family learn to thrive and be happy under the increased levels of pressure that we are all experiencing. May we train our minds and intuition to perceive inner dimensions while the senses navigate the outer world with dignity and grace. May more and more souls chose to experience the sacred sound current as a way to elevate the frequencies of the mind’s thought waves. May we all come to understand the significance of every word we speak and every word we think. May we accept, take responsibility for, and acknowledge that our words create our world. May we come to celebrate that by tuning in to our inner sounds, and by harmonizing those inner sounds with sacred sounds, we experience our inner wisdom and merge with the vast awareness of Divine Silence. If only one being on this planet experiences Divine Silence, may that one experience elevate every being. May collective human consciousness know deep and perfect ease with All That Is.
In my personal experience of practicing 40-day meditations, Day 5 is always my most challenging day. It never fails that I start with total enthusiasm, and then on day 5 I find I sit in meditation but feel irritable and squirmy: Why am I doing this? Am I wasting my time? Why is this practice so challenging? Why do I feel like it may be easier to chew a mouthful of stones than attempt to refine human consciousness? Who do I think I am? I’d better be getting something good out of this…
If curious, dear reader, please find the meaning of the mantra for the Isht Sodhana Mantra Kriya on the site Spirit Voyage Mantrapedia.
Dharti Hai Akash Hai Guru Ram Das Hai means
The Earth is. The ether is. Guru Ram Das is.
God is. Woman is. Man is. Music is. Yoga is. The child is. Grandfather is. Grandmother is. This stone is. This gem is. This inhale is. This exhale is. This challenge is. This ecstasy is. This slumber is. This awakening is.
The Mind is! The Mind is! The Mind is!
Today’s prayer: May my mind find it pleasant and satisfying to serve my soul. May my devotion to these teachings carry me through these moments of unbearable itching sensation. May these mantras continue to be chanted, contemplated, and deeply loved so that they may continue to uplift many, many souls.
