Meditation Is Doing Nothing

It’s that simple.

Consciousness doesn’t do anything: it merely observes. Even while the body is doing things, consciousness is just aware. An example is fastening our shoe laces; we’re simply aware of the fingers, and no thought is required. We see something needs doing, and merely do it.

This is how meditation can take place at every moment. It’s being aware, and dropping the effort of being aware. Just pure awareness.

Unfortunately, consciousness can be distracted to become fixated on some thing, and that is the usual way for humans. We can even become distracted in meditation, when we try and do it.

We don’t have to make a big deal about meditation.
That’s just acting-meditation.

The moment when we do nothing but be aware is meditation.
