“There is a certain attitude
that develops over time
for real meditation to happen.
Most of us start meditating
with a certain level of arrogance and egotism
that we may be completely unaware of.
We come from the perspective that we know things,
we can accomplish things
and ‘what is meditation going to do for me’ kind of attitude.
We try and think our way into meditation.
We treat meditation as though it is something
we can control at our will.
This is perfectly normal. Perfectly natural.
But what happens over time
is the sense of being this person
that knows things, that does things, that is in control,
begins to fall to pieces.
It finds it can’t make meditation happen.
It can’t tell bliss when to come or not come.
It doesn’t have much control over anything.
And over time, it realizes
it knows absolutely nothing about meditation
and is completely helpless.
That there must be something greater than the ego
that makes meditation happen.
This is when surrender happens; you become humble.
And when surrender happens, you are naturally open
and in openness, real meditation comes to you.
That doesn’t mean you necessarily
give up your practices & techniques.
But you do them as an offering, not as a demand;
not as a business transaction.
There is a sense of giving yourself up in this moment,
giving yourself to this moment
so that meditation can take over.
That is why in the eastern spiritual practices
there is the bowing down to the Guru or to the Gods.
It is a symbolic gesture for the inner bowing.
The Gods, Gurus or Consciousness don’t need your bowing.
But if there is the inner bowing,
the humble openness to that which is greater than the ego,
then that greatness can shine through.
