What Is Meditation?


by Michael Maciel


Meditation is paint drying. It is grass growing. It is the surface of water on a windless day.

It is the body of mind, the mind of body—the act of being without doing.

It is deep, dreamless sleep while being awake.

It is the end of time.

It is the space between breaths, the space between thoughts, the space between heartbeats. It is the space between everything and everything.

“Lift the stone and there you will find me. Split the wood and I am there.”

About Michael Maciel

My name is Michael Maciel, and I have studied the Ancient Wisdom Teachings and symbolism for most of my adult life. In the early 1970’s, I was ordained a priest in the Holy Order of MANS, a service and teaching order of which I was a member for the better part of that decade. I now serve on its Board of Directors and teach regular classes on the Mystical Interpretation of the Bible and the Tree of Life Study Plan, which deals primarily with the practical application of the Laws of Creation.
