Meditation – Quieting Mind?


AngelicView: I really liked what this blogger at Unlimited Boundaries says about Meditation ↓

Everyone hears about meditation and hears that “quieting your mind” is a must or else you’re not doing it right!

Meditation isn’t about quieting the mind. It’s never been about that.

Yes, you can ATTEMPT to quiet the mind… but then you’re using a manipulative force in order to do so… and when is manipulating anything into doing what it doesn’t want to do ever been a good thing?

Simply realize the truth… you are the awareness being aware of the thoughts being passed by it. Then simply let that event take place, non-judgmentally.

That is meditation.

Eventually you’ll also realize another truth about meditation… that meditation isn’t an act you do, it’s not something you put 10, 20, or 60 minutes aside per day to do. That’s the very act of blasphemy.

Meditation isn’t something you do, it’s a state of consciousness you exist in, at all times.

So by all means, don’t ever quiet your mind… instead, quiet yourself and listen to your mind.

One thought on “Meditation – Quieting Mind?

  1. I think the issue is most people have what is termed “monkey brain”. It constantly worries and chatters about everything. You don’t realize that because you don’t have it. I don’t either. You don’t have it because you were “born realized”, me too. I do believe that for most if not all, meditation is the narrow gate that only through it will you progress to the destination.

    If you work on it a little, you, meaning “angelic”, you will get it and you will be able to meditate at will. After about 10-20 times it will just be part of you. Don’t underestimate it’s benefits.
