Simple meditation exercise for today

Sitting in a comfortable posture.
I close my eyes with the palms on my lap facing up - the index finger touching the thumb at the tips.
Suck my stomach inwards gently
Breathe in - such that the lungs get all the air I breathe in - and not the stomach.
Breathe out - keeping the stomach still compressed
I do it a few times.
Now I imagine that I am a guest / visitor in my body.
I detach myself mentally from the body, and all the shortcomings and impositions of the world and imagine myself free - that I think is the afterlife.
Life - as I know itnow - is really the afterlife.
What is real, is myself as the guest / visitor - that is what remains (and not the body).
I try to feel myself without any limitations, being part of the God that resides in all of us.

Welcome to the spirituality blog






This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
