Discussion of spiritual practices: awakening, meditation, and the freedom that cannot be lost or found. All perspectives are welcome; advaita, christian, buddhist, islam or even no perspective at all. Just pointing to that which is nearest and dearest.

In silent meditation, after all your ideas about yourself and all your desires are discarded, only Love remains. 

Why disturb It to no avail?

Peace on you,

Meditation unlike other activities is not concerned with learning something new.  It is through the gentle release of of our worldly concerns that we realize that we were never lost, that we were never alone, and that we need do nothing.

Rejoice in Him and nothing else but Him:
He is Spring; all other things are winter.

 - Rumi





When we look into turbulent water, we cannot see our reflection.

It is only when the water becomes still that we can see our original face.  Silent meditation stills the water - then That which was always there becomes clear.

Peace be upon you,
bob

Meditation is like playing a card game with just one winning card.

                   The "I NEED DO NOTHING" card.

Meditation is like sweeping a dusty room. Old ideas to the dust bin - leaving a perfectly serviceable clean room. Space for new dust.  

Peace on you.  

Bob.

Most Curious


It is most curious that with enough regular meditation practice we come to see that all our efforts were unnecessary.  In a flash, we see that we need not have extricated ourselves from a situation that we were never in.

“To God belongs everything in the heavens and everything on earth, and all matters are controlled by God.”
[Quran 3:109]
