What is meditation ?


Meditation as we know it is limited. It consists of making the mind act through concentration, in order to escape the inner noise of the latter. But in the end, it only manages to generate resistance, tension and contradiction, without being able to really discover a liberating energy. Because the traditional brain is conditioned by psychological accumulations linked to the past, which are reactions of memory. Thus, it is thought which proposes to discover by concentrating, if there is in us something other than a conditioned space.

However, concentration is always a directed thinking process, oriented and conditioned. It strives to rule out certain sensations in favor of a state of silence. But it is within a state of tension and noise that we seek, and what we find is none other than the fruit of this tension, which is still the internal noise in the field of thought.

But there is another form of meditation, which does not originate in thought. However it is necessary to understand the disorder which it engenders in order to be free from it. Thought, which is the ego must be completely still. It is only when the mind is free from the conditioning of thought (not through concentration), that attention is possible. Because attention is quite different When one is totally attentive there is no longer the shadow of oneself, the ego is absent. There is only the observed thing, and the noise of thought cease.


Attention is of the present moment, and thought is of the conditioned past. Meditation is not a technique that requires a particular time to escape conflict. We are talking here about a permanent meditative state, born from the attention given all things, from moment to moment. So that the whole of everyday life escapes from the past, from time, and becomes new every instant. From this perception a vital energy can manifest itself in everything we do.
