The Stillness of that Divine Dance

Sitting in silence, as the mind gently subsides into its source, the source reveals itself, as that "nothingness", encompassing the "everythingness" as well. As I realise that its just the play of that "universal consciousness", that the thoughts are, I no longer cling to the thoughtless state, hiding in its comforting peace, and there is a freedom in the allowing of that play, in not resisting that dance.
The peace that then only prevailed, in that deep meditative thoughtless state, now is ever prevalent.

The Circus of Effort

Dear Asanga,
For long I had found myself "disturbed" by thoughts, after having experienced, without any effort, the "no-mind" state, and the accompanying peace.

Then the circus of effort.

One tries to either cling on to that state or retrieve, re-live it..!! In other words bring that experience back..!! The harder I tried, the more stubbornly, thoughts persisted.

Eventually, realising the futility of it, I slowly started not to fight or abolish thoughts, but just let them be. And so easily they began to waft in, and out.

Voila,inspite of the thoughts, peace prevailed.
:-)

TRUTH,LOVE,PEACE

Dear nbnarayana, That state

Dear nbnarayana,
That state was a spontaneous occurring, in the presence of my guru.
There was no effort towards it, in fact I was least qualified {not having ever done any spiritual practice}, nor did I have any knowledge of it, that there was even such a thing..!! I knew very little, except that my heart felt a tremendous love and devotion towards my guru. I have never felt that prem or bhakti for any other human being till then. I just took this human being to be my god and guru without having any mental concept of what either ment ...!!!
When in the guru's presence, spontaneous meditation would happen so easily.

Having tasted that state, when it faded, no matter what effort I made to regain it, it was futile.

Now I no more hanker after that no-mind state.
Thoughts arise, spontaneously, and sometimes they are pleasant, sometimes not.

The very state of not chasing that no-mind state {blissfull,peacefull,joyfull} has surprisingly, brought it about again...!!!

I did nothing.

TRUTH,LOVE,PEACE

Consequences, erroneously suggested as means

A beautiful quote which sets it straight and clears misunderstandings that most people have.
In other words mistaking descriptions for prescriptions.

"How many of the ways(disciplines,exercises,practices)recommended as helpful,or even necessary,for the attainment of SATORI are not in fact CONSEQUENCES of that state erroneously suggested as MEANS ?"
