Q&A: The Spiritual Heart

What will happen if I meditate on the navel centre?

At this point in your spiritual development, it is not a good idea for you to meditate on the navel centre. This is the centre of dynamism, strength and power. If you misuse this dynamism, it becomes brutal aggression. The navel centre is also the emotional centre. With this emotion you can expand yourself and become the Infinite. But instead, if you do not have abundant purity in your nature, you will become a victim to earthly pleasure-life. You should meditate on the heart centre to get peace, love and joy. When you have these qualities, you will feel that peace itself is power, love itself is power, joy itself is power.
