The Infinite Peace that is Nothingness

"If you throw a rock

at something solid,

that solid thing will be damaged,

it will be hurt.



But if you throw a rock at air,

the air is not damaged nor hurt.

The air is unchanging.



Similarly,

if you realize your true nature

of nothingness,

that nothingness is…

A Story about the Buddha

This is from a recent Satsang/Meditation

which can be heard on this youtube video here



"I've heard a story about the Buddha

and that when the Buddha attained enlightenment

How to Witness this Moment

"How do you witness this moment?



By allowing it to be exactly as it is.

You do not get involved with it,

dramatize it, analyze it

or try and change it.

and in that allowing,

Become Fixated on Awareness Itself

"One meditation method would be

to become completely enamored

with consciousness;

to let your attention be

completely fixated on itself.



Whether you experience

consciousness as being,

or as the witness,

you let your attention

rest fully in that.

In Consciousness, There is No "I"

"In pure consciousness,

there is no 'I.'



There is the absence of any object or subject.



And that is profoundly peaceful;

profoundly satisfying.

A feeling of completely being at home.



Yet that peace is not there for a me.

If you bring a 'me' in there to enjoy that…

How to Move Deeper into Silence By Spending Time Alone

"It is good to spend

an extended period of time alone

if you are able.
