Meditation Has Nothing To Do With Religion
Meditation has nothing to do with religion.
Religion turns meditation into an occasion.
Meditation is the practice of simply resting in awareness
to realise that we are that awareness.
Meditation is not an occasional event:
it’s every spontaneous moment.
We step aside from our usual routine
of being aware of some thing.
We drop all thinking;
we can do that later.
There is nothing inherently wrong with thinking,
but being attached to thoughts fossilises our mind.
Able to meditate, those thoughts now become significant inspiration.
Once acknowledged, drop the inspiration as there is more coming.
Take a break. Relax. Be aware.
Know we are awake.
