Meditation is simple


Meditation is simple


Just let go, let go, let go, and then let go of letting go.

What is let go of?
Everything that arises in consciousness while sitting in silence.

What happens after some practice?
We come to our natural state: reverence.

How does this happen?
Practice, practice, practice.

I have not created the jinn and the humans except to worship Me. [Quran 51:56]

escape


Is it not our dependence on worldly things that imprison us? 

Meditation is the escape from that prison. 

If anyone thinks that God cannot support him in this life and in the Hereafter, let him turn completely to his Creator in heaven, and sever his dependence on anyone else. 

He will then see that this plan eliminates anything that bothers him.(Quran 22:15)
