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.

who am I?

Meditation eventually forces us to answer the question: “Who am I”?




Who is meditating?
Who has a quiet/noisy mind?
Who sits?
Who is noticing the breath?
Who is trying to find peace?
Who was born?
Who dies?

Hint: If nothing is yours and God is in control of all matters and everything is temporary, who are you?

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

O my people, this worldly life is only a fleeting enjoyment, while the Hereafter is the abode for eternal settlement.
[Quran 40:39] 

peace on you, bob

Meditation is the the search for what to give up.  When you empty yourself utterly, you will come to see that:

   Nothing is yours,
   God is in control of all matters, and 
   Everything in this life is temporary. 

As they say: the truth shall set you free - free of the tyranny of ‘me’ and ‘mine’.  Ahhhh the sweet taste of it!


To God belongs what is in the heavens and what is in the earth, and to God, all matters will be returned.
[Quran 3:109] 

You cannot will anything except in accordance to the will of God, the Lord of the worlds. [Quran 81:29] 

O my people, this worldly life is only a fleeting enjoyment, while the Hereafter is the abode for eternal settlement.
[Quran 40:39] 

Peace on you,
bob
