Meditation is a state of thoughtless awareness .
It is not an act of doing - it is a state of awareness. We either in
this state or we are not, regardless of what we are doing in life.
Truly, a man can be in meditation while doing his day's labors as
another man can be very far from meditation while sitting in a lotus
posture on the top of a mountain.
You become the master of yourself
- you think when it is necessary and you are thoughtless when there is
no need to think. Shri Mataji, the founder of Sahaja Yoga, explains:
is only possible when you are beyond your mind. With your mind you can
never enjoy. It's like a big load. It will not act, it will not help.
Enjoyment comes when you are in complete silence - in a rippleless
lake. The reflection of all the joy that is created on the shores of
that lake are completely reflected, they are not deflected. If there
were ripples it would have been a different image altogether and would
have been something nowhere near the image of reality.
Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
can be achieved through the process known as "self-realization".
Self-realization is the awakening of our own pure energy that lies
dormant within us.
