YOUR MIND IN MEDITATION
Meditation is a daily tool to maintain the strength and focus of the mind. Our mind can only hold one thought at a time and having the ability to create a constant positive mental principle becomes our greatest asset to generating clear seeing and calm abiding. Ripening and opening your heart and mind to the direct understanding of yourself.
What do you do with your mind during meditation?
Nothing at all! Just leave it, simply, as it is.
One Master describes meditation as “mind, suspended in space, nowhere”.
“If the mind is not contrived, it is spontaneously blissful, just as water, when not agitated, is by nature transparent and clear”.
Be mindful not to impose anything on your mind or to tax it during meditation. When you meditate there should be no effort to control and no attempt to be peaceful. Do not be overly solemn or feel that you are taking part in some special ritual; let go even of the idea that you are meditating. Let your body remain as it is, and your breath as you find it. Think of yourself as the sky, holding the whole universe.
