How to Reach Silence & Stillness in Meditation

"Silence is not a cessation of thoughts.

Stillness is not a cessation of movement.



If you try and stop thinking,

that is an action of repression.

The thinking has not stopped

you are only holding it back.



It is an action on top of the action.



Silence and stillness

is at the root of allowing.



When you allow…

Meditation Technique for Spiritual Awakening

"Turn your attention to consciousness.



Whatever arises,

allow it to arise

but keep your attention

resting in consciousness.



We pay far too much attention

to the noise of the mind

and not the consciousness

that is the essence of mind.



Consciousness is silent.

It is prior to noise.



By remaining in…

The Process of Surrender in Meditation

"Meditation techniques & spiritual practices

are extremely important

but do not necessarily

take you directly into meditation.



They might, they might not.



For many,

practices take them to frustration.

how focused you are on the…

Fulfillment is in Offering 100% Attention

"Offer 100 percent attention

to whatever you do.



If you do that,

no matter what the outcome,

you will be fulfilled.



There is no real peace or love

when you scatter your attention

a little here and a little there

or you are attached to the outcome

being a certain way.

Then you are not alive.

Then you are…

You Can Always Be Conscious - It is Just a Matter of Surrender

"Everyone has situations

in their life where they say

'It's impossible to be present

in this situation.'



But impossibility

only exists in your thinking.

You are only holding on

to a certain judgment about how it should be;

holding on to a certain idea of yourself

and refusing to budge from your position.



It is…

From "I Am" to Realizing Oneness with Everything in Meditation

"'I am' and 'everything is'

are the same.



You may start in meditation with resting in 'I am,'

and feeling your sense of being

that is beyond thinking.



And that may turn into witnessing.



And witnessing may turn into

'everything simply is,'

the sense of no separation

between you and the world.



In this, the…

How to Attain Witness Consciousnes in Meditation

"There are 4 things required

in order to be able to become

a witness to thoughts.



The first is the full allowing

of thinking to be.



If you try and manipulate thinking

or stop the thinking in any way,

you will not be able to witness it.



It is only in fully allowing thoughts

to naturally happen

like wind…

Meditation : Become Comfortable Being Consciousness

"Become comfortable

just being consciousness.



Become aware of awareness itself

and let your attention remain there.



Don't look to get anything out of it,

just let your attention rest

in consciousness itself.



If you spend time during your day

resting your attention in consciousness

rather than always being lost in…

Experience of Infinite Joy

"When you immerse your attention

into the peace that is the essence

of this moment,

you find that it is limitless.



It is completely formless

and that formless peace

goes on forever.



The emptiness is so vast

so intoxicating, so fulfilling,

there is no end to exploring it.



I call it peace

but the peace is…

How to Transcend Separation & Realize Oneness

"An object

does not become an object

separate from you

until you define it.



In order to not define it,

you simply remain in awareness.



You do not allow your attention

to leave awareness

to become fixated on thinking;

rather, attention remains resting

in itself as consciousness.



When you remain in…

Create a Fertile Environment for Meditation to Happen

"It's important to first create a fertile

environment within yourself

for meditation to happen.



You eat a very light

and healthy diet,

you become disciplined

in what you put in to your body,

how you take care of your body.



You immerse yourself

in spiritual practices that both

purify and awaken you into bliss.…

Falling into Bliss

"Even when you taste

the bliss that you are,

the mind still runs back

to its old assumptions

of what it is.



You experience yourself as consciousness,

then what happens?

You snap back like an elastic band

to assuming you are your thinking again.



That sense of being a person,

being the doer, the controller

Meditation & The Path to Self Realization

"When you place importance

on a thought,

whether it be an idea, an opinion,

a judgment, or a belief,

then you are bound to it.

It becomes part of your identification.



That thought then has power over you

because you are holding on to it,

you are defining yourself with it.



And that holding on,

keeps you stuck in the…

Meditation is Giving 100% of Yourself to This Moment

"Meditation is giving yourself

100 percent to this moment.



If you give yourself 100 percent

to this moment,

then there is no you and this moment,

there is only this moment;

there is only bliss consciousness.

but for doing anything.
