    In India there is a long-standing disagreement on the nature and purpose of meditation. One school of thought considers that definite–and conscious–evolutionary change is necessary for liberation; consequently meditation must be an actively transforming process. The other view is that the only thing needed for liberation is re-entry into our true, eternal nature. That nothing need be “done” at all except to perceive the truth of ourselves. Obviously their meditation procedures are going to be completely different.

    How to Realize The Void in Meditation

    But if the mind does not cling on to that self, if your attention does not have to cling on, if you release that clinging urge, when you relax that sense of being enough it becomes something that cannot be spoken about in any way. It's the absence of everything. It is the absence of everything yet it is infinite.

    Dissolving the Ego into Peace in Meditation

    But when the mind begins to feel the peace or the bliss or the love or the silence of this moment, it falls in love with it, wants more. And then the ego willingly dissolves itself into this peace through relaxation.

    Beware of Wrong Meditation Concepts and Techniques

    The real purpose of meditation is to evolve to higher awareness, the pure consciousness. But, unfortunately most of people because of lack of right knowledge and realization have been proceeding on the path of trance, delirium and unconsciousness. Even most of gurus also have been teaching delirium in the name of meditation and spirituality because of their ignorance.
    You may start with resting in 'I am,' and feeling your sense of being that is beyond thinking. And that may turn into witnessing. And witnessing may turn into 'everything simply is,' the sense of no separation between you and the world.
    The evolution of one’s self through the process of awakening within the dream of all dreams comes forward at this time to timestamp this day, entering into 2015 and moving forward into 2016. This transformational time is a time of bringing forward the awakening thoughts into your mind, heart and spirit to find those thoughts of truth seeding themselves into your lives. It is the time to start separating yourself from the future, freeing yourself to embrace it and to let go of the past that is blocking you from seeing your way forward, cementing the way into the future by closing the door of the past.

    Truth vs Illusion

    In life, there is always this misconception of truth and a refusal to believe that you can see the illusion. That may sound confusing at first, but the truth is, that the truth is harder to find in your life because you must seek it out and the illusion is easier to find. It is the easier road to take because illusion is placed in your life for you. There are many factors that take away the truth in your life and replace it with illusion and the biggest factor in our view is fear.

    Forced Connections vs Choice Connections

    As you have forced connections and choice connections in your life, the purpose of your life is to diminish the forced connections and increase the choice connections. It is meant to free yourself of having to have forced connections, of having to go through situations just to get through. Life will never be simple, but choosing a different perspective to view it in will make it less and less difficult to function. You have the power within to decide what your life will look like, who will be in that life, who you choose to have a relationship or connection with.

    Offensive Living Vs. Defensive Living

    Are you learning out of love or are you reacting to life’s situations out of fear?

    Reaching The Pure Peace of Nothingness in Meditation

    In meditation, you learn to stop paying attention to the content of thoughts and begin to rest your attention on the awareness that is aware of thoughts.
