Meditation Is Cool

Meditation Is Cool

“If you go to Catholic, Jaina, Buddhist monks, you will find them very nervous – maybe not so nervous in their monasteries, but if you bring them out to the world, you will find them very, very nervous because on each step there is temptation. 

“A man of meditation comes to a point where there is no temptation left. Try to understand it. Temptation never comes from without: it is the repressed desire, repressed energy, repressed sex, repressed greed, that creates temptation. Temptation comes from within you, it has nothing to do with the without. It is not that a devil comes and tempts you, it is your own repressed mind that becomes devilish and wants to take revenge. To control that mind one has to remain so cold and frozen that no life energy is allowed to move into your limbs, into your body. If energy is allowed to move, those repressions will surface. That’s why people have learned how to be cold, how to touch others and yet not touch them, how to see people and yet not see them.

“People live with cliches – “Hello, how are you?” Nobody means anything. These are just to avoid the real encounter of two persons. People don’t look into each other’s eyes, they don’t hold hands, they don’t try to feel each other’s energy, they don’t allow each other to pour. Very afraid, somehow just managing… cold and dead. In a strait-jacket.

“A man of meditation has learned how to be full of energy, at the maximum, optimum. He lives at the peak, he makes his abode at the peak. Certainly he has a warmth but it is not feverish, it only shows life. He is not hot, he is cool, because he is not carried away by desires. He is so happy, that he is no longer seeking any happiness. He is so at ease, he is so at home, he is not going anywhere, he is not running and chasing… he is very cool.”

  1. I do love the way you have presented this matter and it really does offer me personally some fodder for thought. On the other hand, from what precisely I have experienced, I simply wish as the actual feedback pile on that folks remain on point and in no way embark on a tirade of some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this superb piece and while I can not necessarily agree with this in totality, I value your viewpoint.

  2. One thing I’d like to discuss is that weightloss routine fast may be possible by the proper diet and exercise. A person’s size not simply affects appearance, but also the actual quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, as well as physical abilities are afflicted in weight gain. It is possible to make everything right whilst still having a gain. In such a circumstance, a condition may be the perpetrator. While an excessive amount of food but not enough body exercise are usually to blame, common health conditions and key prescriptions can easily greatly enhance size. I am grateful for your post in this article.
