Silent Mind Meditation Program: Summary
The Silent Mind Meditation Program can be summarized by one phrase, “Knocking on Heaven’s Door”. The Knocking on Heaven’s Door is the seeing from moment to moment the Fact within in operation, and this is your responsibility. Beyond the knocking, everything you try to do just perpetuates the status quo. The doors of Heaven cannot be forced open – they must open on their own. The mind must, seeing its own limitations, get out of the way, then that which is beyond can come into being.
What you are being asked to do, you will realize, is not complex but it is arduous. It is difficult not only because the mind is elusive, subtle and quick, but also because you have to drop the attachments you have been tightly holding onto for a very long time. These ego-centric attachments have been keeping you occupied your whole life and unless they are purged, the rest of your life will also be spent catering to them. If the consequence of such a self-centered life was meaningful then there would be no need for SM or any other meditation practice. SM is only needed because spending your whole life seeking the fleeting pleasures gained through the fulfillment of these petty desires is a criminal waste of existence – a real tragedy. So enough has been said, it is time to act, it is time to be a light onto yourself. Good luck and best wishes on your journey back to the Source.
