I hadn't meditated for months--maybe four months, because I was caught up in "doing it right." Bodhidharma and his way of meditating is to do it with your eyes open facing a wall. Just now I did some amazing intuitive yoga that ended in a lotus position and it just felt right to meditate with my eyes closed and thumb touching middle finger. And I had the most blissed out meditation in such a long time--and I got a direct teaching from the source. It said:
All styles of meditation are good for you. It is up to you to listen to your heart to understand when to use one style and when to use another style. Bodhidharma was one man whose experience in a cave helped him to lead millions of people to peace, but there are lots of men and women who led people to peace using different techniques. THE TIME FOR HAVING ONLY ONE TEACHER IS OVER. We are now in an era where all the healers are working together at once and each individual balances out the teachings of the peaceful ones in their own lives in order to create their own harmonious remedy.
No one shall ever feel guilty or ashamed for switching religions or churches. It is imperative for people to follow their own hearts now to wisely discern what will lead to peace and what will lead to conflict.
