Meditation is much more than relaxing & clearing the mind. Indeed it is also more than knowing the self or connecting with a higher nature. Meditation at its highest level is the striving to attain the original state of existence. It is that which put forth the first vibrations of consciousness that rippled within the entirety and gave forth the multitude of lesser states of consciousness (it is debatable whether lesser states of consciousness are actually such or whether the lowering of such is only an illusory effect produced by the mind. This is also highly probable for the separation of minds & consciousness.). Of all things known three states can be agreed upon as the basis of our reality, the material, the energy & the consciousness. Of these three most great minds agree that consciousness is of the highest & the most elusive. It is as difficult to control the mind as it is to control the wind & so to is it just as hard to study the varying levels of consciousness (Especially the higher ones) without ones self transcending all levels in order to necessarily be in an observational vantage point. One cannot properly study what is on high unless one becomes eye level with that which is raised.
Meditation can be used as a vehicle of consciousness transcendence. It has been said that all is mind. If indeed all is mind then in order to properly study consciousness one would need to transcend the trappings of the mind. The mind and it’s five senses are enjoyed by many but the sensational extremes of the senses which humans are drawn to serve as a permanent distraction from the natural progression of humanity from its current lower state to something much greater. I have heard many teachers exclaim that meditation is the only worthy pursuit & I understand where they are coming from. Meditation, can be a vehicle to elevate ones self to almost unthinkable levels of awareness if practiced correctly. These few individuals who reach such high levels of consciousness & wisdom benefit humanity greatly. As they say a rising tide raises all ships.
It is difficult to put words to something that is beyond things & barely attainable by thought, something you cannot truly study, touch, taste & see. I find that the word consciousness while understood for its meaning is not worthy of that which we are speaking. To know this is to understand the steepness of the mountain seekers of wisdom climb. Meditators whether they know it or not have opened the door to an unknown path that leads to a greatness that is beyond perception but can be known through experience which becomes wisdom. I hope these shared thoughts resonate with someone out there. I have been on a long journey of raising my consciousness, leaving behind material desires in pursuit of a higher state & yet trying to balance that with what is expected of me as a being in this world where lower states of consciousness are praised & materialism is the most widely taught tradition. Be well my good friends, I will write again & I wish you well in all of your pursuits.

It is by my heart that our hands quiver
staring into the sunset
a thousand eternities too far
Dreaming of walking upon the flames of the Sun
Only then absolute freedom from all material bounds would seem real.

The immovable object & the unstoppable force theoretically cannot exist in the same realm or universe. Only one existing thing would be able to use all of the energy in this universe all at once in order to power its undeniable position. Therefor either the unstoppable force uses all required energy to power itself infinitely forward & through all existing things or the immovable object uses all of the universes energy to infinitely exist without internal motion or being moved by outside forces. Therefore these two cannot exist simultaneously & if both were to exist they must necessarily exist in parallel realms or universes where a supreme energy provider fed both of these universes with an infinite amount of energy to power the existence of both the immovable object & the unstoppable force separately with them never meeting but existing simultaneously in their own space. However you see that we needed to add the variable of a supreme energy provider or cause/force which raises another interesting question about not only the essence of such a force but the very nature of the reality of all forces which derived any perceived power at all.
The pondering of this leads me back to the root of perception, mind & conceptual consciousness. There is a great mystery about the relationship of projected energy & consciousness. What is energy ? It cannot truly be touched or analyzed only theorized, observed & directed. Energy is still a great mystery in all of its various degrees of vibration. No two atoms ever truly touch, a person never truly touches anything because if we did the attraction that lets our atoms/energies touch a table would also cause us to be stuck to the table. Thus our energy & the tables energy reject each other & our mind fills in the gaps with our senses by tricking us into perceiving that we’ve touched the table when in fact we haven’t scientifically speaking. A bit of divine like intervention to solve a necessary problem within this so called reality.
What is this place ? This “World” It is frightening at times but beyond beautiful if you look with another eye. The material aspect has been found by science as well as the ancients to be a lie of the mind & its true nature is an ocean of energies powered by some unknown masterful consciousness beyond understanding. I suppose I’ll always search for the truth of what this world is, peeling back layer after layer as though it were an onion. I will always ask myself what is beyond it & search for how I can see what is beyond.

The best things are often times the simplest things. Love can often be a simple thing but is often complicated by human perceptions. A semantical argument about the essence of love could take an eternity but what comes immediately to the holder of love is the heavenly peace & higher feeling that is unique unto love. Love is a thing that is so easy to reach out for & sometimes obtain but also very difficult to keep. So where does all of this leave us ? I’m not certain. However the journey toward love, the very pursuit of it I believe makes a person better in many ways. Thank you for reading my words. I humbly wish the best for you all.
