[quote:numewenon:MV8yMjAxMjI5XzM3Mjc2ODgxXzIwQ0M4REYz] [quote:701st:MV8yMjAxMjI5XzM3Mjc2NjM2XzU3QzJFQzkx] "Meditation really is a complete emptying of the mind. Then there is only functioning of the body; there is only the activity of the organism and nothing else; then thought functions without identification as the me and the non-me. Thought is mechanical, as is the organism. What creates conflict is thought identifying itself with one of its parts which becomes the me, the self and the various divisions in that self. There is no need for the self at any time. There is nothing but the body, and freedom of the mind can only happen when thought is not breeding the me. There is no self to understand but only the thought which creates the self. When there is only the organism without the self , perception, both visual and non-visual can never be distorted. There is only seeing 'what is' and that very perception goes beyond what is. The emptying of the mind is not an activity of thought or an intellectual process. The continuous seeing of what is without any kind of distortion naturally empties the mind of all thought and yet that very mind can use thought when it is necessary. Thought is mechanical and meditation is not." http://www.krishnamurtiaustralia.org/articles/meditation%201.htm FWIW I have never found wiser words... never been there myself though good luck :) [/quote] And before last year, this would have never made sense to me. Now it makes perfect sense. [/quote]
I know a lot of people seek this state, but you don't see a lot of personal accounts. I can say I've glimpsed this state, only to be sucked back into some emotional drama that I begin to identify with and find myself adrift in ego land. I recently had a very difficult heart breaking breakup that GLP helped me with, and it has lead me back into serious meditation and seeking God as my primary goal. It's funny how it takes being brought down so low before we make this a priority. But that is the ego I guess.
So any stories to share? What types of meditation or spiritual practice do you use to seek God/enlightenment? Have you reached this?
