#27 What Do You Meditate About?

Posted: June 19th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: Life | 7 Comments »

I was recently thinking – “What’s the real purpose of meditating really?”

We know it’s a form of sitting.

But what are we supposed to do while we’re sitting?

So I went out to look for the answer.

And stumbled upon this video:

After watching it, you can read the rest of this post below.

You see on Maharishi’s answer in this video, he said: “Mind is the experiencer, and the thought is the object of experience.”

When I first heard that, I got a little confused.

So does he imply that your consciousness is the mind?

Eventually, I realized that there’s a better way to understand this.

If the mind is the experiencer, consciousness is actually the observer above the experiencer.

In other words, the mind may just be the ego or illusion which your consciousness observes.

If you get confused by his retort, I hope this helps.

    The film is in post production. Like all low-budget ineependdnt films, there is much work to be done and not a lot of money and resources to do it. We are creating a high-quality product as fast as we can with the resources we have. Patience. It will be worth the wait. Our goal is to have the film completed this fall. As soon as there is news to announce, you’ll see it here.

    Præcis :) Det er vel ca 20 procent billigere i England. Men hvis du kan komme til at købe det i Heathrow, så er der mere at spare der (ligesom Danmark vs. Kastrup)

    Hi, Michelle,I went to an SU workshop with my daughter just to see what it was about. I liked what I saw but didn’t see it as something I would do very often. After a second workshop, my daughter talked me into stamping with her weekly. I became hooked! I’ve been stamping for over 12 years now!

    Really good to read about this. While I am fasting right now you carved up my hunger more then it already was! Next week my friends from Holland will be visiting me in Turkey where we will stay in Istanbul for 10 days. I planned a trip to visit Kadıköy (have you been to the street where they have dozens of second-hand book shops? Gorgeous!) where I now have found our restaurant to visit to have some nice dinner at night! I am sure, as a Turk who knows the cuisine , I will going to enjoy the food as much as you did!Always following your footsteps,Hatice From Turkey x
