CULTIVATING A LOVE FOR LIFE by Guest Blogger Rick Heller, Author of SECULAR MEDITATION
By Publicity Admin
A couple years ago, I started noticing flashes of light when I was in a darkened room. My eye doctor said I should visit a specialist right away because it could be a sign of a detached retina, which can lead to blindness. I tried to settle my emotions by being “in the moment.” Nonetheless, I was quite agitated by the time I reached the ophthalmologist’s office.

The medical assistant called me in. She tried to retrieve my record on the computer. It wouldn’t come up. She apologized and said she would have to take notes by hand. She was clearly irritated. I decided to do an abbreviated loving-kindness meditation, offering her my best wishes. Silently I said something like:

I’d like you to be safe
I’d like you to be healthy
I’d like you to be happy
I’d like you to be at ease in the world

NEW WORLD LIBRARY’S 21-DAY MEDITATION EXPERIMENT by Social Media Manager Kim Corbin
By Samy AbulEla

For a long time now, I've been a fan of doing 21-day experiments as a way of kick-starting positive habits. The first time I did one, I decided to walk the labyrinth at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco on a regular basis for three weeks to see if anything in my life would shift. As a result, the inspiration for my iSkip.com website, which remains my personal passion today, came through.

In the 15 years since, I’ve done numerous other experiments on everything from writing in a journal every day to making dietary changes to trying out new fitness programs. So when I recently decided that I wanted to give a regular meditation practice a try, I invited my New World Library coworkers to join me.

What is Advanced Meditation Like? by guest blogger Ajayan Borys
By Samy AbulEla

If you’re curious, mystics of the world’s spiritual traditions have written tomes and poems about their many wondrous spiritual experiences. Rather than discuss the variety of spiritual experiences that can come your way after years of meditation, this blog will focus on the fundamental, defining characteristic of meditation for someone who’s been practicing regularly for many years.
