ON MEDITATION/ MINDFULNESS
Meditation is as ancient as human consciousness and in fact we can say it is its natural state: a pure and silent pool of creative thought-free luminous energy at the core of our being.
Nevertheless, as humans, in order to survive and thrive, we need to develop a mind, a thought process, a personality, a character, in other words what we refer to as “I”, the ego.
It’s a beautiful mechanism that has given birth to all human ingenuity. And a wonderful device that allows us not only to process facts and create strategies, but also to elaborate emotions and relationships with others.
The only problem is that we have become so identified with this “I” that we forget the natural state of our consciousness, which is after all, the source of it all. The mechanism, the device, becomes the master and the consciousness is hiding somewhere in the basement, neglected and unrecognized.
Hence we need to “meditate”, we need to take some action, to practice some technique to go back where we originally belong, while meditation is in fact our natural state…
So Meditation is a state and it is also the paths, the methods to go back to that state. In other words, to remember it…
Mindfulness is the English word to translate the ancient Pali word as used by Gautama the Buddha more than 2500 years ago: sati. In its essence it means “remembering”. It has become very famous in the last few years, also outside spiritual circles, because psychologists and neuroscientists have started to notice the limitations of their approaches and that fundamentally our modern society suffers of a very debilitating disease: a general “existential neurosis”, a lack of meaning and purpose that can only be healed by reconnecting with our own source.
There are many, many different ways to get there, to remember our original state, the purity of our consciousness.
In the ancient times, Meditation was a prerogative of spiritual people who would distance themselves from the world and its distractions, and find peace in seclusion.
The modern approach to Meditation, as extensively taught by contemporary teachers as Krishnamurti and Osho, and even more recently as Thich Nhat Hanh, Eckart Tolle and Mooji, is that of bringing Meditation into the world, rather that leaving the world to achieve Meditation.
The basic idea is that an inner silence, a meditative state, that depends on outer circumstances is not very deep…
So the challenge is learning how to be IN the world, but not OF it… How to fully enjoy human life on this planet and yet to be connected to that pure inner consciousness.
A mistake that often occurs when starting a so called “spiritual path” is that falling prey of many misconceptions like: “I have to stop my mind”, “I have to be always happy and calm”, “I don’t have to feel emotions” and so on and so forth…
This has the side effect of getting us even more tense when we start to meditate. We start to judge ourselves, we feel a failure and we give up, thinking that either meditation is not for us or that it is to difficult.
What I teach in my MEDITATION/MINDFULNESS PERSONAL TRAINING is how to be at peace with ourselves in the first place, and how to understand all the hindrances and misconceptions on the path. And, most of all, how to approach meditation in a serene, light, non-tense, compassionate way, in order to regain trust in ourselves as spiritual beings.
Because that’s what we naturally are! We just need to remember it…
