Loved One! Daredevil efforts to make a world record and get name printed in a record book – a man/woman will go to any length – even risking life – to get a record set in his/her name. But ask him/her to sit down with no purpose – no reason to meditate to make known the unknown – without efforts – and all will run away!
That is the difficulty level of this task. That without any motivation – not even moksha – and you have perfect recipe for failure in this task. As ego just doesn’t find the required motivation to ‘not do’ the task of ‘doing nothing to gain nothing’! It’s simply weird by all standards. You put up a mission by some Guru, a wish of a legendary figure, a message by an angel for a reward, fear of punishment, grave danger to overcome, heaven to be won, peace and joy to be achieved, immortality be the result – something… something is needed – if not all this then at least entertainment, a feeling of achieving something mysterious, some secret learnt… ‘give me something boss – something to hold on!’ is what the ego cries out. Yet you are sitting there trying to witness all these going on and want to re-gain the ‘pure nothingness zone’!
So I tell you this day – it takes courage to be after nothingness. It takes the highest goal to have no goal – let go and sit there for hours for nothing to happen – but just as a system of meditation – just to know the truth behind all these cravings – creations – craziness and causes. You want to know the mind of Mind, the matter of Matter, the gnosis of Gnosis, the energy behind Energy and the god behind God. You want to know the history of History, the language of Language and the beginning of all Beginnings.
Stick to your plan of no plan and let it be. Indulge – I will ensure you go to the depths of human psyche soon – forever, here.
