Meditation is the state on no-mind. It is a state of pure consciousness with no content. Ordinarily, your consciousness is too much full of rubbish, just like a mirror covered with dust. The mind is a constant traffic – thoughts are moving, desires are moving, memories are moving, ambitions are moving – it is a constant traffic! Day in, day out. Even when you are asleep the mind is functioning – it is dreaming, thinking still in worries and anxieties. It is preparing for the next day; an underground preparation is going on
This is the state of no-meditation – just the opposite is meditation. When there is no traffic and thinking has ceased, no thought moves, no desire stirs, you are utterly silent – that silence is meditation. And in that silence truth is known, and never otherwise meditation is state of no mind. You cannot find meditation through the mind because mind will perpetuate itself. You can find meditation only by putting the mind aside.
Meditation starts by being separate from the mind, be being a witness. If you are looking at the light, naturally one thing is certain – you are not the light, you are the one who is looking at it. Hence “Watching is the key for meditation”.
“Watch your mind”
Don’t do anything – no repetition of mantra, no repetition of the name of god – just watch whatever the mind is doing. Don’t disturb it, don’t prevent it, don’t repress it; don’t do anything at all on your part. You just be a watcher, and the miracle of watching is meditation. As you watch, slowly mind becomes empty of thoughts; but you are not falling asleep, you are becoming more alert, more aware.
As the mind becomes completely empty, your whole energy becomes aflame of awakening. This flame is the result of meditation. So, you can say meditation is another name of watching, witnessing, observing – without any judgement, you immediately get out of mind
