What is Meditation

    Yanna Dabulamembuat kutipantahun lalu
    Life is purposeless. Don’t be shocked. The whole idea of purpose is wrong — it comes out of greed. Life is a sheer joy, a playfulness, a fun, a laughter, to no purpose at all. Life is its own end, it has no other end. The moment you understand it you have understood what meditation is all about. It is living your life joyously, playfully, totally, and with no purpose at the end, with no purpose in view, no purpose there at all. Just like small children playing on the sea beach, collecting seashells and colored stones — for what purpose? There is no purpose at all.

    Meditation transforms. It takes you to higher levels of consciousness and changes your whole lifestyle. It changes your reactions into responses to such an extent that it is unbelievable that the person who would have reacted in the same situation in anger is now acting in deep compassion, with love — in the same situation.

    God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no flowers, there would be no green trees, only deserts. God is not an ascetic, otherwise there would be no song in life, no dance in life — only cemeteries and cemeteries.
    God is not an ascetic; God enjoys life.

    Now people are asking all over the world, “What is the meaning of life?” Of course the meaning is lost, because you have lost the way to find the meaning — and the way is awareness.

    Your life will have as much depth and as much meaning as you have awareness.

    Watching is the key of meditation:
    Watch your mind.
    Don’t do anything — no repetition of mantra, no repetition of the name of God — just watch whatever the mind is doing. Don’t disturb it, don’t prevent it, don’t repress it; don’t do anything at all on your part. You just be a watcher. And the miracle of watching is meditation.
    As you watch, slowly, slowly the mind becomes empty of thoughts; but you are not falling asleep, you are becoming more alert, more aware. As the mind becomes completely empty, your whole energy becomes a flame of awakening. This flame is the result of meditation.
    So you can say meditation is another name for watching, witnessing, observing — without any judgment, without any evaluation. Just by watching, you immediately get out of the mind....

    The mind cannot penetrate meditation; where mind ends, meditation begins.

    constantly remember that you are not here in life to become a commodity; you are not here to become a utility, that is beneath your dignity. You are not here just to become more and more efficient — you are here to become more and more alive. You are here to become more and more intelligent; you are here to become more and more happy, ecstatically happy.
