Meditation is to Float and not to Fight

Flow of Grace!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 veryFloat with the Flow! 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!

    Prayer is a much better word, and it doesn’t kill off anything, as long as it is used in a broad enough sense.

  2. madhuraod says:

    Meditation is letting one’s genetic script to express itself.

  3. sulochanosho says:

    Prayer v/s Meditation:

    Even though we can relate and collate the terms ‘prayer’ and ‘meditation’, they are not one and the same. In the name of ‘prayer’, we put a big agenda of our ‘wish lists’ before the almighty God. But in true paradigm of meditative flow, there is neither ‘the other’ nor ‘your self’. It’s just IT IS.

    Genetic Script:

    But this ‘genetic script’ is not what our so called scientists or physicians describe.

  4. Madhu says:

    Each individual is bestowed with his/her unique genetic script. It is that script or signature which makes one an enlightened man or a rapist or a con man or an artist or a scholar.
    In the final analysis it is the genetic script that wins. The rest is losing battle.

    Any thing (of whatever be its spiritual value or social value) that hinders the expression of my unique genetic script is the cause of my misery.

  5. sulochanosho says:

    The paradox with this ‘genetic script or signature’ is that day in and day out our saviours, gurus, scholars, scientists and all are trying non-stop to ‘overwrite’ it with so called new innovative scripts , inspite of the system warning: ‘the original unique script can not be overwritten or replaced, please do not meddle with your toys’!

    Just allow to function the original script, which is enough for the as it is flowering! And this is what a true ‘meditative’ flow is. This is not the negation of life – it’s the full LIFE affirmation.

  6. madhuraod says:

    inspite of the system warning: ‘the original unique script can not be overwritten or replaced, please do not meddle with your toys’!

    Its true Sulochan.

    Unfortunately, We neglect those warnings as we have invested loads of confidence and belief on those saviours.

  7. madhuraod says:

    Suffer while suffering and be happy while U R happy. That is the total surrender.

    When you think of happiness while you are suffering, you bring dischord notes in the heartbreaking melody.

  8. madhuraod says:

    The only SADHANA is debunking everything that is covering and choking your original expression.

  9. sulochanosho says:

    Madhu says, When you think of happiness while you are suffering, you bring dischord notes in the heartbreaking melody.

    Yes. that’s right. In other words it’s just in ‘HERE AND NOW’, the flow and flowering emerges. Almost always we are conditoned to think and live in terms of past or future – never ‘here and now’. That’s the cause for all sorts of dualities, multiplicities, complexities and miseries. Even many of our own jargon concepts have become our own traps to fall in. Our so called refined vocabulary may tend to drag us into many non-existing problems. Our mind ‘thinks’ so! Things are what they are, as they are! We merely label it as ‘happiness’, uhappiness’, ‘good’, ‘bad’ – these ‘delusions’ play and rise in a myth-platform called ‘mind’. Many times it’s merely the hard-swallowed ‘concept-traps’ that may make us choke and think more in terms of pain or plesure. Our physiology just may never move that way. Many of our miseries and afflictions are our own self-created false notions.

    If we are ‘here and now’, then our so called falsely glorified stuffs like mind and thinking find no place there and they are bound to run away without a trace.

    ‘Thoughts’ and ‘minds’ can enter into us more rapidly, only when we move away from the ‘here and now’ flow, when we move to dead past or not yet born false future. If we totally ‘live’ in this moment, that takes care of everything. Action in this moment is life, and all the rest is the way to swerve from the flow of LIFE.

    In simple words, accept and totally live this moment, whether it is joy or otherwise. Living this moment totally is LIFE; thinking of non-existing past or future and depriving yourself of the ‘beauty and existence’ of this moment is DEATH.

  10. madhuraod says:

    What happens when the stranglehold of “me” in any form or shape is released?

  11. madhuraod says:

    Meditation is the flowering of every expression of life.

    It is not being in some fanciful or romantic state.

    By “flowering of every expression of life” I mean. flowering of ur anger, ur jealosy, ur suffering, ur desires, ur disorder.

    It is so sad that we never let the things to express as they are and “flower” in their own way.

    We hinder that “progress” by our prejudices, opinions, directives and the teachings of our sacred scary gurus and above all by our (filthy) value system.

    So, the Meditator is the real threat to the meditation.

  12. Madhu says:

    Meditation is not too death like silence (as it is in this blog)

  13. Sanjay M says:

    Your shitting may turn to be a ‘meditation’, but your holy chanting may miss and kill the meditation. – ROFL !! Hilarious… but bizarrely true 🙂

  14. Sanjay M says:

    “To search for the truth, it is essential to let go of your opinions.”

    is my favorite quote which you’ve highlighted nicely in this post.

    sulochanosho adds:

    True, all our so called opinions are just like opium; we all ‘ll have our own wonderful rhymes and opinions. But TRUTH transcends all these at one simple small stroke!

  15. Madhu says:

    The word “Meditation” is the main stumble block.

    The problem with the meditation is that the more we verbalise it or explain about it, or even try to know ablout it, the more we are away from that state of meditation.

  16. Cafe dog says:

    Good post! and i also agree with Madhu. I use the word “meditate” because it vague as possible. insteaded of planning a meditation…
    or using a specific “technique” i find it best to just let it happen. Its always different base upon gut feeling, and usually borrows from techniques ive learned.
    What is often missed in meditaion is:

    Our own biological creativity. Using or explaining zazen, sutra,mantra and breathing often hampers our natural creative meditating of the moment. Create your own “meditating”.

    sulochanosho adds:

    Thank you cafe dog , for your wonderful inkling and twinkling inputs!

  17. Madhu says:

    Meditation is not possible in safe havens.

    One must take risk by going astray to let it happen.

  18. Velvety says:

    What you say about meditation is 100 pc right. I liked this sentence of yours: There are no walls between your LIFE and your Self. Meditation is simply seeing things ‘as it is’, rather than ‘as it should be’. By the way, thanks for visiting my blog and commenting.

  19. Madhu says:

    The flight of spirituality should never leave the ground of REALITY.

  20. we create the imaginary segragations (walls) between Life and self and between conciousness and the body. meditating serves to bind these imaginary differences.

    Meditating IS on the ground of REALITY.

    -trying to get my new blog on meditating, going.

    sulochanosho adds:
    Thanks Chris , I did visit your site, it’s cute, good venture and adventure; wishing a fast finish!

  21. Madhu says:

    “Meditating IS on the ground of REALITY.”

    Yes, That is the point!

  22. Madhu says:

    Apart from the currents which we make through our thought and mind, there are certain underlying currents exist over which we are already moving and flowing.

    Meditation is to find and ensure that both the currents are in sync with each other.

  23. Madhu says:

    Meditation is unleashing the life to trample over the fictious boundaries of mind.

  24. Madhu says:

    Meditation is neither struggling nor stop struggling.

  25. sulochanosho says:

    The other day one nice guy told me:

    You want to vegetate?
    Then go to some Guru and meditate!

  26. Cafedog says:

    one does not need gurus and masters for meditating, They may give good advice and perspective because they have devoted there life to it.

    But meditating is best when both disciplined and spontaneous, without coersion.

  27. sulochanosho says:

    Yes, Cafedog, The so called gurus and godmen are teaching the flowers as to how to flower!

    The so called meditators addicted to gurus and god-realization are no different from the maniacs addicted to doses of drugs and sex.

  28. Madhu says:

    Any system of meditation arrests the free flow of life.

  29. sulochanosho says:

    Yes, Madhu you are hitting right there that any circus and system of meditation arrests the free flow of life. The only benefit of the “so called cycled perverted meditation stuff” is that it can engage many people and make them remain and transform themselves as “good potatoes”. Humanity and this world always needs more and more good potatoes and parrots.

  30. sulochanosho says:

    An interesting link on what UG says on HUNDRED AND EIGHT MEDITATIONS that Shiva taught to Parvati:

    Sorry or no sorry, UG’s remote or direct “fire” there on: (‘Shiva, instead of f….ing wife Parvati in her bed, taught her 108 techniques of meditations.’)

    UG’s view on Hundred and Eight Meditations

  31. Madhu says:

    The most unfortunate ‘happening’ in the history of mankind is the invention of the word “Meditation”.

  32. i really want to float while meditating.
