If we want to truly explore the universe we must first explore the space inside of ourselves. While we take the time to discover more about our beautiful world, and the universe above it is absolutely crucial that we discover who we are inside and how we are connected to everything around us.
In order to truly discover ourselves, we need to tap into the incredible technology of meditation. Whether we use mindfulness, vipassana or some other technique it is important that we master the self and seek to discover our true purpose.
That is why we have selected a very powerful TED talk for you to enjoy from DADA Gunamuktananda. He trains people in the art and science of natural health, yoga, and meditation in India, the Philippines and in Australia.
He has specialized as a teacher of meditation with the Ananda Marga foundation since 1995 and has since taught all over the world. You can learn more about him and his work by clicking here.
“The exploration of inner space, our own consciousness, is ultimately connected to our discovery of outer space. Just as the world becomes a smaller place with increase in communication and transport technology, so the universe becomes a smaller place with the increase in meditation technology!” -TEDx
Enjoy this amazing talk on consciousness where Dada Gunamuktananda shares some powerful universal truths about consciousness, backs it up with science and then leads you on a short guided meditation to become one with the universe.
Not only will Dada Gunamuktananda share some incredible spiritual truths in the video below but he has an incredible way of backing it all up with science. At the end of the talk, he does a powerful guided meditation to help get you started on your journey!
Here are some of the highlights from the talk.
“When I stop thinking then I really am.”
We are at an amazing time where people openly speak about our potential to connect with the oneness of the universe and remember who and what we really are. Not only can we know about it logically but we can actively experience it within our mind-body connection.
“Just because we cannot prove something doesn’t mean that it isn’t there.”
Our senses can only detect a small portion of this vast universe. We must keep looking, exploring, and asking questions. How else are we going to discover the truths of the universe?
“The most beautiful and profound emotion that we can experience is the sensation of the mystical. It is at the root of true science. That deeply emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is relieved in the incomprehensible universe, is my idea of God.” -Albert Einstein
I have to say that diving deep within myself on the path of discovery is one of my favorite things. Not only that but then I can talk with others about what they have found and see all the incredible flavors of life.
I would love to hear about what you have discovered. Let me know in the comments below what you think about meditation and consciousness.
