Why I Teach Vedic Meditation

Whenever I teach meditation I am reminded of how I first came to it and at the same time I am unable to remember exactly what life was like prior to learning. Students often asked me if I’ve changed. I say “yes” and then I smile and say, “but not in the way you would think.”

I am more myself now. I’m a better, higher version of myself but I still have a quick sense of humor, and I still find history fascinating. I still like to watch basketball and football. Monday night is one of my favorite evenings during the winter. I am more “me” because of the realization that all is That. What does that mean? It means that life is non-dual.

I think Francis Lucille puts it best: “Non-duality is an experience in which there is no separation between subject and object; a “me” and the rest of the universe; a “me” and God. It is the experience of consciousness, our true nature, which reveals itself as absolute happiness, love and beauty. Consciousness is defined as that, whatever that is, which is aware of these very words right here, right now.”

A student recently said to me “I find it interesting that I feel like this was brought to me at just the right moment and at the same time I wish I had been practicing sooner.”

We come to meditation when we’re ready to sit in the presence of pure consciousness – that by which all else is known. When we experience it we may wish we had been there all along – I am telling you – you are there, you are That. It is simply a matter of no longer ignoring what you know.

    Well, in of itself is an ancinet science. Most ancinet cultures used the stars as a means of farming, travel and time keeping. As far as what you see in horoscopes, those are GENERAL descriptions of what you are. is broken down by planets. Your Sun Sign might be a Leo, but your Moon Sign could be Cancer. This would make you less eager to be in the spotlight like most Leo’s would. When a professional does your chart, you will be required to give the following information:Birthdate, Time, Year & Location. With this information we can decipher anything you wish to know.As a side note, if you read your it won’t be right 100% of the time. Nothing is!
