REACHING THE MEDITATIVE STATE
What you are today is the very reason why you want to meditate.
Meditation is not doing anything. It is not sitting with your eyes closed. It is undoing and realizing.
A meditative state is achieved after you are done with the act of letting go. This act is called Contemplation.
Contemplation begins with active acceptance – of everything ; your emotional baggage, your bundle of feelings, your prejudices, your bias, the way you think, behave, react etc.
Accept all of them as they are. Do not reason with them or try to ask why? Your mind will try to convince you.
And if you are convinced, then you should be happy too. And you will have no reason to meditate in the first place.
When you have accepted the way you are, you are directly challenging your ego, the mechanism to safeguard your beliefs. As the ego is challenged, it drops off.
You are now free to drop off all your baggage like you drop a ball from your hand. Just let go!!
Now begin with question with “If I was none of the above which I was holding on to, then WHO AM I?”
As you begin this journey of introspection, you are led deeper and deeper towards your core, at the heart centre. This is where you live. In your consciousness.
This is the place where your love originates, where peace dominates and where the expression of “just being” achieves completion.
When you arrive here, you are in a state of Joy. You have transcended all the levels of human existence and have become one with “Your Self” .
You are now in a meditative state.
1). Do not start accumulating new sets of emotional baggage. It is not important and it is not worth it .
2). Do not triumph with this achievement. This can lead you to go on another ego trip.
3). Do not analyse this Joy. Just enjoy :D:D
