The more we try to define ‘meditation’, the more we miss it and tend to confine ourselves. The moment you define it, it’s not meditation but dead. Using ‘meditation’ as a tool for some holy goal is the very ‘negation’ of meditation. Meditation never falls in our mudane world of ‘thinking’ and ‘doing’. Even what our market ‘Gurus’ are telling about ‘meditation’ is not ‘meditation’, but that’s the perfect way to undo ‘meditation’. Such is the evading paradigm of ‘meditation’. All the so called ‘sutras’, ‘techniques’, ‘patented packages’ are at the most the dead debris of murdered meditation.
Meditation is not action, but at the same time it’s not inaction. Meditation is not mere ‘silence’, but an ever emerging dynamic silence. Meditation is acceptance of LIFE in totality. Meditation is surrender to LIFE.
Spinning rules and tools in the name of meditation is the very mockery of ‘meditation’. Meditation shuns everything that our mediocre mind proclaims, yet meditation is ‘all-inclusive’. Meditation is not ritual. Meditation is the very being of LIFE. Your shitting may turn to be a ‘meditation’, but your holy chanting may miss and kill the meditation. Then what is meditation? We know, but the moment we put into words, it’s dead. It’s something like ‘immediation’, never the ‘mediation’. There are no walls between your LIFE and your Self. Meditation is simply seeing things ‘as it is’, rather than ‘as it should be’.
Meditation is not concerned with our so called proud intellectual understading or knowledge or experiences. Meditation is more to ‘melt’, and less to ‘act’. Meditation is pro LIFE, it may give new enhanced dimensions to our LIFE.
But all said and done, still we dont know what is meditation and that alone is meditation! Friends, let us explore and relate ‘meditation’ to our LIFE. Please do participate and share your words, eventhogh our words fail to ‘see’ it!
