Meditation is not what you think. It’s not a special this or that, that can only be done in this way or that. What they have called “meditation” is just allowing yourself to suspend certain activities that you are normally doing more or less all the time and automatically. When you do that your consciousness first sinks into your body. You feel it all and feel it breathing and bubbling around. Then you notice space. The universe. You notice that you were holding all those activities up in place, trying to do them all at once. You have let go of that. Now you’re in your body and around your body and you feel the planet holding you against it. You feel the sun, even if it’s night. You know it is always close by. You feel the stars. You feel the things that seem distant, but you feel them like they are there with you. All the stars, and the life are so close by that you could start to believe that you and them somehow exist together in a way that you don’t normally recognize or pay attention to. You notice much more than that. You are the same life-force as all the living and nonliving things. You, and all that exists, are all one wave–and there is no real distance to this wave. It is full of variety, and it’s all doing its own thing. But you are one with all of IT. You are embedded with IT and within IT. This is what meditation feels like when it first starts to kick in. Here things become interesting. You realize that this is what we really are. The melodrama we perpetuate is always neglecting this. The melodrama is less than this–This whole life-force you are communing with now. You realize that, most importantly, YOU are not spending enough time with all that you/what you really are.
