How Can Meditation Help Me Reach God?

144

Question:

I have recently discovered meditation and have been meditating for twenty minutes daily for the past two months.  I have already experienced some wonderful benefits, for example an increase in my confidence and realizing that I was going to do something wrong before I did it.

I have tried very hard to reach the deep meditative stage where I can directly connect with God and get answers to my questions.  At the moment I am going through a lot of changes in terms of my career, and I am really worried about making wrong decisions.  I feel that no matter how hard I try to connect to God to get help with these decisions, He is just not there.

What is the process for connecting to God?  I am worried that I have selected the wrong career and want God’s opinion before it is too late.

There was a time when 'meditation or no meditation?' was a serious issue for me.  I come from a Protestant background where in my (admittedly biased) view prayer was a practice of reciting long-winded and important-sounding words.  I struggled for years with the concept of prayer.  It did not make sense to me that in church other people should pray on my behalf - but then I thought that was just me being the rebel again, and I kept quiet about it.

Outside of church I read books about prayer, and the prayers of other people.  Still, I had this feeling that something was missing.  Eventually I gave up on figuring out what prayer is about and just got on with life.

Of course I had conversations in my mind with God, but none of the books that I read described these conversations as prayer.  The conversations were also quite one-sided, because I told God
