Sleep is unconscious Meditation.
Meditation is conscious sleep.In sleep, we get limited Energy.In Meditation, we get abundant Energy.This Energy enhances the power of Body, Mind and Intellect.It opens the doors for our Sixth Sense and beyond.With this boosted Energy through Meditation, we will be relaxed, healthy and happy. It also helps to reach greater heights in the physical realm.Meditation is nothing but the journey of our consciousness towards the Self.In Meditation, we consciously travel from:Body to mind, Mind to intellect, Intellect to Self and Beyond.To do Meditation, first we have to stop all the functions of our Body and Mind i.e., body movements, seeing, speaking and thinking.Now, let us know how to do Meditation.For Meditation, the first thing is the Posture.You may sit in any posture. The Posture must be comfortable and stable.We can meditate either on the floor or on a chair.We can meditate in any place, where ever we feel comfortable.Sit comfortably. Cross your legs. Clasp the fingers.Now, close your eyes.Stop inner or outer chatter.Don’t chant any ‘Mantra’.Just relax. Totally relax. Just relax.When we cross our legs and clasp our fingers, energy circuit is formed and gives more stability.Eyes are the doors of the Mind.So, eyes should be closed.‘Manthra chanting’ or any chattering- inner or outer, are the activities of the Mind.So it should be stopped.When body relaxes, Consciousness travels to the next Zone-
Mind and Intellect.Mind is nothing but a bundle of thoughts.There are numerous thoughts always coming to the surface of the mind.When ever there are thoughts in the mind, we may get many questions- known or unknown.To transcend the mind and intellect, one has to: Observe the Breath.Observation is the nature of the Self.
So, one should just witness the Breath.
Don’t do concious breathing. Don’t inhale or exhale consciously.Let inhalation or exhalation happen on its own.Just observe the normal breathing.This is the main key. This is the Way.Don’t go behind the thoughts. Don’t cling to quarries or questions or thoughts.Cut the thoughts.Come back to breath.Observe normal breathing.Be with your Breath.Then, the density of the thoughts reduces.Slowly breath becomes thinner and shorter.Finally, Breath becomes the smallest and settles like a flash in between the eye brows.In this state, one will have No breath and No Thought.He will be totally thoughtless.This state is called ‘Nirmal Sthithi’ or ‘No Thought State’.This is Meditative State.In this state we will be under the shower of Cosmic Energy.The more Meditation one does, the more will be the Cosmic Energy one receives.This Cosmic Energy flows through the Energy Body.Watch Meditation video in ‘Spiritual Reality- journey within’ video.
