Getting in the Gap – Making Conscious Contact with God Through Meditation – Wayne Dyer
This is another text from my Master’s Course in Metaphysical Spirituality from The American Institute of Holistic Theology, and while the technique offered by Dyer is method and process, it is remarkably simple and very, very effective. The directness of finding the space between our thoughts is made user-friendly in Dyer’s gentle approach. It has been said that the average person has 60,000 thoughts a day. The problem is they’re the same 60,000 thoughts we had yesterday and probably will have tomorrow. Dyer’s Gap is a modernization of Japa, and ancient tool for meditation. Find the space between the thoughts has never been easier. This is an excellent book for people who wish to begin a meditation practice. My only caveat for this book is that Dyer uses western terminology, prayers and scripture to enable the process. If you can release your reactions to those references (which can easily be substituted for any others of your choosing), this is a very good beginner’s manual for meditation practice.
