The Art of Ascension - Stepping into Stillness
There are many forms of meditation and prayer, but for me practicingthe Art of Ascension as taught by the Ishayas has proved the simplest and most effective way to move beyond the limitations of the mind, and cultivate a way of living from that still centre that lies deep within .
A single pebble tossed in a still pond creates clear concentric waves whereas many pebbles tossed in a pond already full of waves creates chaotic waves and swirling eddies. In the same way, introducing a single thought into a mind that is still, creates clarity and effectiveness, whereas many thoughts added to a busy mind where thoughts are already competing or conflicting with each other creates confusion and stress.
The Art of Ascension brings cohesiveness of thought and quiets the busy mind in an effortless, effective and natural way.
It returns the mind to its natural state of rest and peace; resulting in clearer thinking, greater healing and simply, a more effective way to live.
