Example text

Concentrez-vous sur vos mains. Fermez les poings... puis détendez-les doucement. Répétez cet exercice jusqu'à ce que vous sentiez vos doigts se détendre complètement et vos mains s'ouvrir doucement. Concentrez-vous maintenant sur vos bras et sur vos avant-bras. Tendez vos muscles... et détendez-les jusqu'à ce que vous sentiez vos bras devenir lourds et complètement détendus. Concentrez-vous sur votre dos. Tendez les muscles de votre dos... et détendez-les jusqu'à ce que vous sentiez votre dos s'enfoncer comme dans du sable.

Cela se fera peut-être au cours d'une vie où nous serons démunis et en mesure de vraiment apprécier la moindre petite chose. Mais, attention, il n'est pas nécessaire d'attendre cette vie d'indigence pour comprendre la leçon ; il suffit de vivre selon des préceptes justes et honnêtes, et de se souvenir que chaque action a des répercussions. Cette vision moderne est celle que partagent la majorité des Occidentaux non asiatiques qui croient en la réincarnation ; elle n'est ni moins ni plus valable que les autres, elle répond tout simplement mieux à nos besoins.

C'est à travers cet exercice que l'homme apprend à se connaître et à reconnaître son potentiel de spiritualité. C'est aussi avec la pratique de cette forme de méditation qu'on peut atteindre l'extase mystique, car c'est dans le silence de la contemplation qu'on est en mesure de ressentir la présence de Dieu (quel que soit le nom qu'on lui donne). Ainsi, quelles que soient vos croyances personnelles, que vous vous adressiez au Dieu chrétien ou à un Être supérieur, c'est dans le silence contemplatif que vous serez le plus à même de ressentir sa présence.
