Meditation is a stage of no mind. Meditation is a stage of pure consciousness with no content. Ordinarily consciousness is full of rubbish. Just like a mirror covered with dust. Mind is in a constant traffic. Thoughts are moving, desires are moving, memories are moving. It is a constant traffic day in and day out. Even when you are a sleep mind is working. It is dreaming, still in anxiety and worries, preparing for another day.
In Meditation there is no thought. Thoughts cease. You are silent. And in this silence truth is know. Not otherwise.
Silence, complete silence is required. This is what scriptures say as no-mind. Therefore the first step is to unidentify with the mind. Not moving with the mind. The moment you are out of mind, you enter in deep silence, consciousness, alertness, you become observer and truth is revealed.
Meditation is the awareness that ‘I’ am not the mind. More the awareness deeper is silence. it is in this silence you will realize who you are. And then slowly as much you learn the art of being all of from mind, by not getting involved with the mind you will become more and more alert , more conscious, more meditation showers. This is natural state which we have lost. This is kingdom of god.
The whole art, the whole science of meditation is to uncover thyself, to become natural. Look at the child when it is born. It is so much closer to god. So much innocent. gradually child is taught to speak, learn, argue. And thus becoming away from innocence gradually. Meditation brings your natural state back. it brings back the lost jewel. it brings your union with supreme. Therefore when you sit in meditation, for the first time, you will feel as if you new this silence. Therefore it actually is not lost, it is only forgotten.
Meditation is mind turning towards its own source. It makes you mature, really grown up. Growing in age has nothing to do with maturity. Look at children and scientist. Both want to reach moon. What will you do after reaching there? There is no inner transformation. There is no inward inquiry into self.
At the end death will take away everything, your degree, your all validness. Meditation transcends death.
