“You have to find out what meditation is. It is a most extraordinary thing to know what meditation is–not how to meditate, not the system, not the practice, but the content of meditation. To be in the meditative mood and to go into that meditation requires a very generous mind, a mind that has no border, a mind that is not caught in the process of time. A mind that has not committed itself to anything, to any activity, to any thought, to any dogma, to any family, to any name–it is only such a mind that can be generous; and it is only such a mind that can begin to understand the depth, the beauty and the extraordinary loveliness of meditation.” ~ Jiddu Khrisnamurti.
“You cannot meditate if you are ambitious–you may play with the idea of meditation. You your mind is authority-ridden, bound by tradition, accepting, following, you will never know what it is to meditate on this extraordinary beauty if you’re ambitious.” ~ Jiddu Krishnamurti; Indian philosopher, public speaker, educator, and writer.
Meditation is the flowering of the human spirit through inner attention on what is, it is nature at its purest, it is the place where man, or the form of man, does not exist because consciousness is free from thoughts and all ignorance. Meditation gives the serious meditator strong self-discipline which works in all aspects of his life. Meditation boosts emotional and intellectual intelligence to understand the depth of life. Meditation gives one the confidence and strength to be unique and a light unto oneself and unto others.
Humankind lives on the edge, on the edge of stressful and violent thoughts all day–anger, confusion opinion, gossip, embarrassment, shame, and all fears–which control people’s whole existence and interaction with the world around them. There is no wisdom in the things they do, thus there is not any deep understanding and not any insight.
The only condition in man which brings light to the chaos may be found inwardly and not outwardly, because outwardly there is nothing but the illusion of your beliefs, of your rebellions, of your violence, of your anger, of your stress, and so on and so forth.
The spirit of the human being then is trapped in this thought-form which controls man, and in order to be freed there must be communion with it–i.e., man must get in direct touch or communication with his own spirit through the sacred silence of his mind, through inner contemplation of what is.
And what is, that substance of pure consciousness which is all wisdom and love, transforms human thought once meditation is adopted, it transforms the whole being–via confidence, strength, wisdom, self-discipline, and via the elevation of the mind in all aspects.
Ambition then is the one opposite of all meditation, all desire for material gain which becomes an obsession when man’s life is seeing through the eyes of ambition; because ambition robs the mind of freedom to express its godly nature, and it fills the mind with desire for outward things, events, and people.
Practice inner contemplation without any ambition whatsoever and you shall see your light emerging and taking over your whole being, thus you shall attract opportunities for growth in all aspects of your life, as spiritual, mental and financial, people will see you shine and will be attracted to your light.
