Meditation Is Remembrance

Meditation Is Remembrance

“Wherever you are remember yourself, that you are; this consciousness that you are should become a continuity. Not your name, your caste, your nationality, those are futile things, absolutely useless. Just remember that “I am.” This must not be forgotten. This is what Hindus call self-remembrance, what the Buddha called right-mindfulness, what Gurdjieff used to call self-remembering, what Krishnamurti calls awareness.

“This is the most substantial part of meditation, to remember that “I am.” Walking, sitting, eating, talking, remember that “I am.” Never forget this. It will be difficult, very arduous. In the beginning you will keep forgetting; there will be only single moments when you will feel illuminated, then it is lost. But don’t get miserable; even single moments are much. Go on, whenever you can remember again, again catch hold of the thread. When you forget, don’t worry – remember again, again catch hold of the thread, and by and by the gaps will lessen, the intervals will start dropping, a continuity will arise.

“And whenever your consciousness becomes continuous, you need not use the mind. Then there is no planning, then you act out of your consciousness, not out of your mind. Then there is no need of apology, no need to give any explanation. Then you are whatsoever you are, there is nothing to hide. Whatsoever you are, you are. You cannot do anything else. You can only be in a state of continuous remembrance. 

“Through this remembrance, this mindfulness, comes the authentic religion, comes the authentic morality.”

  1. A large percentage of of the things you state is astonishingly legitimate and that makes me wonder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this subject matter goes. But at this time there is just one point I am not necessarily too comfortable with so whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the actual central idea of your issue, allow me observe what all the rest of the visitors have to point out.Well done.

  2. One thing I would like to say is that often car insurance cancellation is a terrifying experience and if you’re doing the appropriate things as being a driver you won’t get one. Some individuals do obtain the notice that they’ve been officially dropped by their own insurance company they then have to fight to get supplemental insurance after a cancellation. Low-cost auto insurance rates are usually hard to get from cancellation. Knowing the main reasons pertaining to auto insurance canceling can help car owners prevent burning off one of the most significant privileges offered. Thanks for the strategies shared by your blog.
