The concept of meditation off lately has been a much sought after subject, with people across the boundaries of profession and age, have been getting inclined towards it, by its virtue of it, helping in organising the life and making it easier for the individual an easier proposal than the existing one, but the concept of meditation has unfortunately getting associated with the achievements of social world than being a concept in which the dweller is able to find a certain kind of peace and solace within, irrespective of the changing landscape of the events and functions, this modification is somehow similar, to what had astrology turned into, a mere fortune telling, whereas it is the science by which the concepts and procedures of drafting the life, as per socio economics, was guided, and how the individual could capitalise to its full potential and hence contribute to the society in general and specifics.
Meditation, is not just a concentration exercise, and having concentration is not the concept or the end goal, it is in fact a stepping stone of course pivotal in it's being, but it in itself doesn’t define meditation. But many a masters, are portraying concentration as the ultimate thing, the task and is now being said to synonyms to meditation, which is leading the society and its constituents misguided, to the concept of meditation.
The author, would restrain itself, for laying a definite impression and speak as an authority (unlike most of the masters the reader would have visited) on the subject, but would like the reader to plunge into the thought, what it is that you are meditating? Mediation, between what? Is what the activist is taking the course for, is there something which is beyond the body and the brain, is there something which is beyond the concepts of the sensory organs, which the activist is trying to explore. Is there something within the body or is there something which is beyond the body, but is enrouted through the body, that is which is being explored by the procedure of meditation, a process in which the “beyond” is explored, the beyond which isn’t in the ambit of the sense of eye, hear, smell, touch and feel, or is it that the bar of all these senses is increased, so that which in normal course of life isn’t visible is seen, which isn’t audible is heard, and so on.
The author, before taking its reader further into the subject, would like to lay a concept of visibility, which is, anything which blocks the light is visible, so is it that “GOD” also blocks the light in order to get visible? Or is it just a hallucinating concept, which has been expressed, as an object a thing, which has a specific size, shape and also inherits the property of blocking the way of light? This example or notation, was just mentioned to make the reader feel that there is nothing during the correct meditation procedure, which one visualises, as the process of meditation is which, their limits are left aback, and new parameters are adopted and attained. The concept of meditation is exploring beyond the known, as we only hear what strikes the ear drums from outside as we don’t hear the things which are functioning within us, we see only what is outside we aren’t able to see, what it is which is there within each and every being. These being the correlating marks, the first step in meditation is to close your eyes and somehow block your ears, well there are numbers of methods which are there, for doing the above, and there are numerous new ones which have been developed by the masters to make the process easier, instead of approaching it the rightful way.
Meditation, as described and as experienced, is a process in which there is no observations as there is no observer, the body, the energy forms and the mind are in tandem with each other, there is no separate entity, the entire system, the body and the brain work as a unit, and when there is only system, which means the observer, the brain, and the observed the body and the energy forms, are one unit which leads to the state when there is no observer and no observation, a process in which there are no limits (as they are also defined when that is a different entity to the one who has just observed it). Meditation, is in total different from the physical exercise or any concentration exercise (which is of the brain), in which there is an observer of the event and the other is the participant, the breath which is pivotal part for existence, is not another thing, but one with the system, there is no external sound, all which is being heard, felt is just part of the system which comes from no where else, than apart from the system itself, a thing which can be only possible when there is no demarcation, between the “my” and the “self”.
The author restraining itself, from expressing itself to the extent to be laying principles and making it a constrained, for its readers to explore any further on the subject, would just hint on what meditation is, and how it is different from the simple brain exercises which are being articulated in the name of meditation, as the individual who engages itself for meditation would not be duped, and adopts the principles in their illicit structure. Meditation is an art, when there is nothing which comes to you neither it is something to which you take yourself too, its just being one with the system, and making and oneness with all participants, and making them one. Its like a factory which has hundreds and thousands of workers but are one with the brand, and work in tandem for the factory, but unlike the factory, there is no external produce, which means there is nothing which is produced for external use but remains within the system, as it is by the system and for the system, quite similar to how the strategies for the various nations is made, when it is by the nation and for the nation. The entire matrix of the system, is solved, as you are part of the energy system and not an external observer, who is being fed or used by the system.
Lets take understanding meditation to the next level, In a football field there are players and audiences, but the ability to dribble the ball as per the wish only remains with the players not with the audience, even if the number of audience is much more than the count of the players, as the players are part of the game and the audiences are just the observer, when you are able to become one with your system, it is only then that you are able to dribble the ball (which out here means the nature and manner of life), but if remain an audience to your own life, then there is scope of you having any control of how the game would progress for and with you, even if you are able to figure out how to dodge the defender (which out here means overcoming the obstacles), but unfortunately most of the people are just audience to their own life and its outcome, when the outcome is not as per the expected lines then there is remorse else there is joy, but even this joy is kind of a “surprise” not a righteous and accomplished, it is this joy which often gives birth to “god” like connotation, which is again reaffirming, you aren’t into the game but just a spectator of it, and there is some one who has scored the goal on behalf, leaving you for obliging it with some gifts or something similar.
The author returning to the originals of this write up, meditation, is a thing which cant be performed or conceptualised as both of these virtues are intellect dependent, the intellect which has been gathered by the surrounding wanderers, who tend to have sense of everything but yet “struggling”, this holds true for those masters who in order to build up consciousnesses amongst the fellow beings are getting carried away in building bricks and mortar structures, which of course are different from the existing ones (may be adhering to ethics of fashion, to present some variant than the prevailing one), but are leading to a newly laid labyrinth. Meditation, which is the most easily available thing, has been turned into a task including procedures and methods, whereas its just a process in which all which has been acquired from the world is to be eradicated and the system to be formatted into its original theme, well the author doesn’t contest if this can be ranked as a task, as its for its wise readers to honestly evaluate, how comfortable they are within themselves and is there any approach route which they have left for the journey from your to self.
