Our school system (public, private, and Christian) believe they are helping children by using eastern transcendental meditation and breathing techniques, however, this is only a deception.They are doing more harm than good.We must teach our children (using God’s Word) to face the problems in this world, not to jump into the yoga position and meditate every time they run into some difficulty.Teaching a generation of children false religious techniques will take them on a false spiritual journey that will end in disaster.This is not a game!With practice and training these false techniques will induce an out of body experience; and/or, show our children false visions that come from an evil spiritual realm.
The world just accepts any false spiritual practice (and even teaches it to our children) without knowing the truth about the evil spiritual realm that is behind the practice(s).What affect do these false spiritual practices have on our children, especially on their mind?More important – what about their eternal soul/spirit?Matthew 16:25-26:For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
The Eastern meditation form of clearing the mind, or even imagining being in another place with the help of tranquility (relaxation) music or sounds, is not the meditation the Bible teaches.Psalm 119:15:I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways; 23…but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes; 48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statues; 78…but I will meditate in thy precepts; 97:O how love I thy law!It is my meditation all the day; 148…that I may meditate in thy word.Psalm 1:2:But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
In eastern transcendental meditation they teach that to pray you clear your mind and wait for the spirit to speak to you – this is wrong!It will take you on a spiritual journey of deception.This method will give you false visions and thoughts that do not come from God, and the origin is evil.The practice of transcendental meditation is very popular in the Hindu religion of Yoga, and Christians should NOT take part in these Hindu practices.The Bible speaks of meditation, but says nothing about clearing our mind.Joshua 1:8:This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shalt have good success.Psalm 1:2:But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.Psalm 119:148:Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.We are to hide God’s Word, the Bible, in our heart and meditateonit – not clear our mind.Psalm 119:11:Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
If you follow the Eastern religious practice of meditation (the Hindu way to salvation) you will not know which spirit is speaking to you – it certainly will not be the Spirit of the One True and Living God!
