Here is a meditation which can be extremely beneficial. All meditation is beneficial, but this meditation has a highly enlightening side-effect. At the end of the day, the void is where our true sense of self lies. You don’t need to understand that for the meditation to be beneficial. You also don’t need to understand it to feel awesome while you meditate on this. So, give it a try and see how it feels.
Also, if you want complete stillness during your meditation, you can use this to achieve it. The void is always still!
1) Turn your focus inward to the void in the background of your consciousness. It should feel like you are pointing your focus behind your eyeballs. You have vision, but we want to look at the void around and behind that field of vision. Don’t think about your brain, just look behind your perception and you will notice the void.
2) Just examine the void a little bit, get used to the fact that there is indeed a void. Get used to the fact that there is somethingness in front, and nothingness behind.
3) Now, imagine the void expanding. Expand it to cover your whole body.
4) Now just rest in the feeling that your whole body is pervaded and surrounded by this void. If done right, this will feel blissful beyond words.
You can take it one step further and imagine the void expanding to cover the whole universe, and rest in that feeling of oneness with everything. If you choose to do this part, at least stay on step 4 for a few moments and let it sink in first.
The truth is, nothingness is always there. We know somethingness all to well but we never look at the nothingness surrounding and pervading it. This meditation allows us to get in touch with that side of existence. It also allows us to get in touch with our true peaceful nature.
Once you are in touch with the void, you can take it one step further and move your sense of self into the void. I don’t want to spoil that bit for you, you should discover the magic yourself. But feel free to ask any questions in the forum, or email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
