Meditation: delicate and empty

While we are training, Awareness seems to require and/or be a delicate balance. Not of anything in particular, just delicate and just balance itself. Balance has the connotation of neutral, impartial; and that is so as we adjust in meditation training from acting upon our thoughts to non-action. Action can be to chase a thought, analyze, cogitate, ruminate, contemplate, or to reject, push away, be frustrated with, or titillated by a thought. Classic meditation training encourages and then requires that the practitioner do none of the above. Just let thoughts come and go. We do not own them anyway, nor are they a part of our self.

This inner posture and attitude is a delicate one. Engaged but not clutching, aware but not thinking about anything, present through the senses but not using the senses as validation of doing. In time, the senses will no longer be used to validate one’s existence because, at some point, the sensorial experience shifts to the non-substantial nature of physicality (its quantum nature or empty nature).

We complete “step 2” in this experiment with a four step method of meditation.
