Do you understand the arrogance contained in the methods of meditation?

What is the final point that one wants to reach in meditation?

What you want is Peace, right?

What you want is Peace. Now Peace cannot be the outcome of a ten minutes or forty minutes daily process, because the process is decided by you and adhered-to by you. So you are bigger than the process.

And Peace is bigger than you.

Whatever you choose will never bring you to Peace. Only Peace can bring you to Peace.

When you adopt a method of meditation, what you are saying is, “I will reach Peace using my methods”. You are saying, “I am the smart enough to reach the Truth, using my own road”. You are not willing to surrender. You are not saying, “Let the Truth decide, how I will reach the Truth. I will just surrender!

 Do you understand the arrogance contained in methods of meditation?

You are saying, “I am choosing this method”, even if on the advice of somebody. “I am choosing this method. And this method will take me to Peace and Truth”. You are saying, “I am choosing this particular method, and this method will take me to Peace and Truth”.

Your methods cannot take you to Peace and Truth.

The Truth comes first and the Truth is eternal. The Truth is twenty-four hours.
The Truth will continuously guide you about the Right action.

This guidance is meditation, and the Right action is meditation.

One thought on “Do you understand the arrogance contained in the methods of meditation?

  1. Interesting point! But at the same time, for me, meditation is a way of lifting the veil so to speak, to see that peace was within all along, to train the individual to choose peace again and again by surrendering until their life as a whole is moment-by-moment surrender to peace.
