Thoughts in meditation

The mind cannot remain a vacuum

Many teachings tell you that you must have no thoughts when you meditate. That is a fallacy for thought itself is part of meditation.  You do not need unconsciousness. Your mind must not be devoid of thought.  You can do that by being conked on the head with a club where you become unconscious.

You must be aware

So if thoughts come and go, be aware of them but become an observer of the thoughts as if you are in the cinema watching the movie on the screen.  And, you know you are not that which is happening on the screen, you are the observer –  you are watching the screen.

When you have that ability to observe the thoughts that pass through your mind, you will find your mantra, your sound, leading you to greater and greater and greater depths.

It is a misconception that the mind must be empty of thought.

When your mind is empty of thought, then you won’t exist.  It’s impossible to exist without motion, and the mind must have motion.  The mind cannot remain a vacuum. The idea is to bypass the thoughts by observing them so that the thoughts do not affect you, do not master you, but you are the observer of the thought, and therefore you are the master of the thought.

    Sometimes we neglect and punish ourselves as we do not like who we are and create a sense of unworthiness. We have to learn to love ourselves as in reality, our capacity to love others is partly dependent on our love for ourselves.

    This sounds a contradiction as many would say it is easier to love others and I should love others more than myself, or my focus should be on others. It can be, but everything starts with us.

    As acceptance is the first step to accepting and loving ourselves, we dilute the ability to express more profound levels of love if we are dominated by our insecurities and self-dislike. Even minor insecurities dimish our ability to love profoundly as they act as a barrier.

    A little self-love is not indulgent but should not be ego based, meaning there is no comparison with others or another standard but our own. Acceptance and self-love are a catalyst to a deeper form of love that we can express. When the ego is in balance, blame does not deflate you, and neither praise elate you.

    Meditation clears away the debris in our soul, strengthening us and helping us resolve our insecurities as we draw from that spiritual force within, and when we have access to those subtler levels, everything changes in our life. That spiritual energy from within cleans and corrects as part of this process of unfoldment or opening of the heart and what’s discovered is more than an emotional state or romantic love, it is a profound, powerful, all-encompassing spiritual love.

    The final path of the path is to become love. Tat Tvam Asi – I am that I am!
    Apart from opening your heart so you can express love with ease, Meditation can help you:

    NOURISH YOURSELF WITH GOOD, POSITIVE THOUGHTS
    NURTURE YOURSELF AND GROW
    NURSE YOURSELF BACK TO BALANCE PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY
