Meditation

“If meditation has happened to you, just feel thankful to the divine and forget it. Just feel grateful, and remember well that you don’t have any capacity to have it, you are not in any way authorized to have it; it has been a gift. It has been an overflowing of the divine. Forget it. Don’t expect it; don’t demand it.

It will come next day again deeper, higher, and greater. It will go on expanding, but every day drop it from the mind.

Life has to be transformed into a continuous meditation. Meditation is not a question of something one does for one hour every day, and then for twenty-three hours one can remain unaware, No. That won’t help, and that one hour will be false, pseudo; it cannot win against twenty-three hours of mechanicalness. One has to spread meditation all over one’s life. Walking, eating, talking, listening, in whatsoever you are doing, be there in tremendous attentiveness, as if that’s all, as if life and death depend on it, as if there is no other moment, as if the next moment is not going to come.
Then the whole energy pulsates in the present moment. That pulsation is subodha, and that’s what brings one to reality, to that which is. And it is the only thing that can give bliss, joy, what Jesus calls the kingdom of god.”
