What is the Meditation?
On the mysterious frontispiece of the Delphi temple was graved in stone a Greek aphorism that said: NOSCE TE IPSUM, ‘Know yourself and you will know the Universe and the gods.’
It is clear that the study of the self, the serene reflection, finally ends with the silence and the serenity of the mind.
When the mind is silent and serene, not only at a superficial level, intellectually, but in all and in each of the 49 departments of the subconscious, then the new appears, the essence, the conscience is freed and the awakening of the soul, the ecstasy and the shamadi intervene.
The daily practice of meditation transforms us radically. The ones who don’t dedicate themselves to the annihilation of the ego, live flying from one school to another, and don’t find their permanent gravity center, die failing, without having obtained the Intimate Self-fulfillment of the Being. The awakening of the conscience is possible only through the freedom and the emancipation of the mental dualism, the fight of the contraries, the intellectual talking.
Any antithetic fight, no matter how insignificant and unconscious, indicates, in man’s atomic infernos, unknown obscure points. The observation and the knowledge of these infrahuman aspects of the self are indispensable for obtaining the absolute silence and serenity of the mind. Only in the absence of the ego the experience and the living of the Complete Revolution and of the Revolution of Dialectics is possible.
Samael Aun Weor, ‘Revolution of Dialectics’
Why to meditate?
The technique of meditation allows us to reach
For Experiencing the Illuminating Vacuity
Vacuity is very hard to explain because it is indefinable and indescribable. Vacuity cannot be described or expressed in human words, because the different languages that exist on Terra can define only things and feelings that exist: it is not at all exaggerated to say that the human languages are not adequate for expressing non-existent things and feelings and yet terribly real.
For intimately discovering ourselves
In life, the only important thing is the radical, total and final change; sincerely, the rest doesn’t have the tiniest importance. The meditation results fundamental when we sincerely want such a change. Under no circumstance we don’t want the un-transcendental, superficial and vain meditation.

For developing our faculties
Meditating to the entire process of the birth and the death of a plant, meditating about all this wonderful vegetal life, if the concentration is perfect and the sleep gets to be deep, then the chakras of the Astral Body rotate, develop and open. The meditation must be correct. The mind must be exact. A logical thinking and an exact concept are needed for the internal senses to develop perfectly.

For searching peace
It is necessary to KNOW HOW TO MEDITATE, to understand what the Technique of Meditation is. So the objective of meditation is simple: What do we search through meditation? TO CALM OURSELVES, SERENITY.
The conference ‘The Necessity of Changing our Way of Thinking’
To search for information
With the meditation technique, what we search is information. A microscope can tell us about the life of germs, bacteria, cells, microorganisms, etc.; any telescope can give us vague information on celestial bodies, planets, aeroliths, stars, etc. But meditation goes far beyond this, because it allows us to know the truth from an ant to the sun, the truth of an atom or of a constellation.
