- Passages can be read for inspiration on your own personal journey, or can even be memorized for use in passage meditation, a path of spiritual growth and discipline practiced for many centuries. In this mode of meditation, one trusts the inspired passage to be the seed of the spiritual experience attained by its author. By memorizing and continually repeating its words silently in the mind, the meditator gradually absorbs this experience. Eventually, passage meditation slows and even stills the mind, and then one perceives what lies in the space between thoughts. When your mind becomes thus stilled, abiding in this interstice between thoughts, a sudden flash can illumine our nature and show you who you really are and have always been.

You'll know such turning points when you encounter them - probably from their special chemistry of exhilaration and fear.
