Meditation is not a separate act which human needs to perform to be in bliss but It is a state of human where life exists in awareness instead of thought.
On my recent travel to Himalayas, I met so many people who were visiting certain spiritual gurus to learn an art of meditation. I learnt from those people that different spiritual gurus preach different kind of meditations. But I really feel that Meditation can’t have different kinds since it is not act.
It surprised me even more when I realized that Most of those people wanted to learn meditation since they had a goal of enlightenment in mind.
I wonder if Enlightenment is a goal, which needs any extra skill of meditation?
For sure Enlightenment is not a goal but a realization that it is possible for human to live Human life without having any thought in mind, which in fact is a state of meditation.
Meditation is about living in the present moment completely. Any act from dance, singing, writing could lead to meditation if one is fully absorbed in that particular act.
Meditation is an ecstatic state of human life where no thought exists.
Even listening to the silence of trees could lead to meditation if one is completely aware in that moment. In fact any act, which could lead to silence of mind, leads to meditation and any of such act is sacred.
It is simply not possible for any spiritual guru or religion to teach meditation that is already part of us. In fact nobody other than ourselves are capable to live in the state of meditation and enlighten us.
One has to learn the mechanism of mind to learn something as subtle as meditation. Until one is not willing to learn the thought process, there is no way that one could realize that life could exist without thought also.
Asking a spiritual guru to teach meditation is just like giving control of your mind to somebody else. But the reality is that nobody other than yourself could control your mind.
Meditation is surely not a conscious effort but instead an unconscious effort of beinrg thoughtlessness when fully absorbed in the moment.
I hope one day human would realize that Himalayas or any spiritual guru can’t help to learn Meditation but it is observation of our own thoughts which could teach us meditation.
I can’t wait to see our planet full of enlightened beings totally absorbed in the present moment. Whenever it happens, surely it would be an amazing world full of peace and love.
