Meditation Is Pure Consciousness.

Meditation Is Pure Consciousness.

“The meditation I am talking about is not a meditation on something: rather, it is a state of meditation. So this is what I mean when I am talking to you about meditation as a state. Meditation does not mean remembering someone. Meditation means to drop everything which is in one’s memory and to come to a state where only consciousness remains, where only awareness remains. “If you light a lamp and remove all the objects surrounding it, the lamp will still go on giving light. In the same way, if you remove all objects from your consciousness, all thoughts, all imagination, what will happen? – only consciousness will remain. That pure state of consciousness is meditation. You don’t meditate on somebody. Meditation is a state where only consciousness remains. “When only consciousness remains without an object, that state is called meditation. I am using the word meditation in this sense. “What you practice is not meditation in the real sense; it is only a concept. But meditation will happen on its own through this. Try to understand that what you are practicing at night, exercises involving the chakras, and in the morning, exercises involving the breath, is all a discipline, it is not meditation. Through this discipline a moment will come when the breath will seem to have disappeared. Through this discipline a moment will come when the body seems to have disappeared and thoughts have also disappeared. What will remain when everything has disappeared? That which remains is meditation. When everything has disappeared, that which is left behind is called meditation.” Osho, The Path of Meditation, Talk #6

    like reading,lisening and dancing with OSHO

  • Jerri Lynn Silver

    So when my breathing slows to the point of almost being nonexistent, that is normal? Even the mantra disappears and it feels like “I” am expanding outside of the body…is that what you mean?
