Meditation is like watching a film.
For a film to be projected it needs,
a film, light and a screen.
The light is our essence.
The film is the projection of our karma, our storehouse of reactions.
The screen is the phenomenal world
onto which we project
react, and acquire more library film.
Meditation is the recognition of the pure light of essence, allowing everything to be seen and played out. Gradually the film wears thin; it becomes transparent, and finally runs out altogether, as we stop reacting to phenomenal world.
perception has clarified
awareness has clarified
essence is recognised
as naturally clarity.
Clinging to the film only creates re-runs.
