What if you lived a moment with absolutely no thought. I think I have and here’s how you can get there.
Some questions that may come to your mind:
- What would that even feel like?
- Does that state of mind even exist?
- Can our minds handle that?
I tried a lot of things to control my thoughts, but I just went nowhere for a long time.
This is when I discovered meditation
I mention meditation mainly because, it is one of the best ways to really reach a thoughtless state.
I’m quite sure that there are other ways too, but I’ve found that meditation is one of the best ways.
Also, because it’s so simple, that anyone can do it anywhere.
I had experiences that were unimaginable and could feel certain energy centers opening and rising.
I admit that it felt scary, but I just trusted the process and carried on.
Eventually i was able to maintain that state of thoughtless. Of course, it came with alot of practice, love, and surrender.
The technique I used to reach that state of ZERO thoughts.
The technique I used to reach a thoughtless state is actually quite simple. It’s not complicated at all. It’s something that works for me and quite sure it would work just as well for anyone else too.
It mainly starts with :
Observing the breath.
Simply watching or being observant of the breath is enough here.
Whether the air make its way through your nose, down your oesophagus and filling your in up like a balloon.
Just be observant of the breath, it’s enough you get the mind to focus on something.
This is a good place to start.
Concentration can seem daunting for a lot of people. However, it’s really nothing to be afraid of.
If your mind wanders, no need to panic at all. Simply bring it back to attention. With practice, overtime, you’ll get better and better.
Think of it as a marathon instead of a sprint.
I simply concentrate at a point between my eyebrows, I find this to be the easiest.
Try to find something to focus on.
This is will help you maintain focus and awareness. It will also keep you from falling asleep or dosing off. Keeping the mind engaged in the beginning is important.
The best thing about meditation, is simply letting go of the mind and everything around you.
Just think of it as floating in space, unattached to anything.
Let go of any control and let meditation just happen. Try not to resist too much.
You can truly realize the present moment, a subtle sense of acceptance toward everything going on in your life.
A beautiful contentment blossoms within you, with the reward of thoughtlessness.
Simply enjoy it:
This is the most important thing.
Thoughtlessness through meditation should be enjoyed.
Your mind isn’t racing, but simply relaxed and centred in the present.
So there you have it.
So far I haven’t really come across anything better than meditation,
The best part is that anyone can do it.
Just start today. At least for 5 minutes.
Wherever you are, whatever you’re up to
I wish you contentment and bliss.
Thank you for reading.
