ZEN Meditation -The key to self-awareness

Posted on

Zen is the practice of raising awareness of the present and coming out of living conditions in dreams. To do this we need to go beyond the mind. This means that our awareness is no longer dragged into the flow of thought, but instead is very vigilant, alert and connected to the present without the burden of the labels in the mind as is common to us. Zen state is often called ‘without mind’. This does not mean we can no longer think. But our minds operate above ordinary thoughts, or outside the general mind. This is the condition of Zen practice awareness. This is Zen. This situation does not aim to achieve anything. Rather, it experiences life today and is connected with the formless essence that exists in everyone and everything. You can experience all this. We all can. All that is needed is to train the mind to always be in insight, now and here. You don’t need to have too many references about what is Zen or concepts about Zen. Because whatever you think about Zen is not Zen.

We can see the expression Eckart Tolle in his book The Power Of Now:

This Is Not What You Think
We keep talking about the current state as the key. I can understand it, but do I really experience it? I am curious. Is it something like what I think or something totally different?

All that is needed is to train the mind to always be in insight, now and here. You don’t need to have too many references to what zen or ko is. This is not what you think about it! You cannot think about consciousness, and the mind cannot understand it. Understanding awareness means becoming awareness itself.

Make a small experiment. Close your eyes and say to yourself: “I want to know what my next thought will appear.” Then be very alert, you wait for the next thought. Be like a cat who is lurking in a rat’s hole with sharp eyes. Will the thoughts come out of the mouse hole? Try it now.
Well?

I have to wait long enough before thoughts arise. That will last as long as you are conscious. In a state of intense awareness, the mind cannot enter. But once you are at a certain level of neglect, the mind immediately arises. Cause mental noise and silence disappears. You are again dragged into the flow of time.

Zen masters sometimes test the alertness of their students by coming quietly from behind and hitting their students with sticks. If a student is fully conscious, then, of course, he will realize the presence of anyone around him, including his teacher and will stop him before hitting or moving away. But if the teacher hits successfully it means students are in a daydream. Off guard Unconscious. Not present, and means nothing.

Getting the conscious mind into everyday life is very important. Because the mind that has the power of great momentum will very easily drag you like heavy river water.

So Zen is the practice of being in an intense state of alert. In this situation, you are connected to the life energy that gives wisdom, health, peace and other miraculous benefits. If more people are aware of our earth, then the conditions of human life will be better.
