|Considering Whether This Be True !|
Years ago, I had a friend who while attending the college at Berkley, California, joined a cult that taught her how to meditate.
Each afternoon at 3:00 pm she would excuse herself and empty her mind of all thoughts and allow her guide to come to her. Eventually she lost her home, her savings and her mind.
Sorry to say this type of meditation as well as other forms taught by Yoga and others tend to lead to spiritual experiences that are NOT of God.
There is a Scriptural Meditation that God approves of.
I believe you will enjoy this short study as you ponder and consider these few words taken from Gloria Coleman's book "Scriptural Meditation."
One of the Hebrew words used in the bible for meditate is “hagah” and it means to murmur (in pleasure or anger); to ponder, mutter, roar, speak, study, talk, utter. Scripture meditation therefore is when you speak God’s Word to yourself over and over again, think on it, pray it and mutter it.
Suddenly the Word will become life to you and health to all your flesh.
