Meditation is not concentration

MEDITATION is not concentration. In concentration, there is a self concentrating and there is an object being concentrated upon.

There is duality. In meditation, there is nobody inside and nothing outside. It is not concentration. There is no division between the in and the out.

Then in goes on flowing into the out, the out goes on flowing into the in. The demarcation, the boundary, the border, no longer exists.

The in is out, the out is in; it is non-dual consciousness.

Concentration is a dual consciousness: that’s why concentration creates tiredness; that’s why when you concentrate you feel exhausted.

And you cannot concentrate for twenty-four hours, you will have to take holidays to rest. Concentration can never become your nature.

Meditation does not tire, meditation does not exhaust you. Meditation can become a twenty-four-hour thing – day in, day out, year in, year out. It can become eternity. It is relaxation itself.

Concentration is an act, a willed act. Meditation is a state of no will, a state of inaction.

It is relaxation. One has simply dropped into one’s own being, and that being is the same as the being of All.

In concentration the mind functions out of a conclusion: you are doing something. Concentration comes out of the past.

In meditation, there is no conclusion behind it. You are not doing anything in particular, you are simply being. It has no past to it, it is uncontaminated by the past.

It has no future to it, it is pure of all future. It is what Lao Tzu has called Wei-wu-Wei, action through inaction.

It is what Zen masters have been saying: Sitting silently doing nothing, the spring comes and the grass grows by itself.

Remember, ‘by itself – nothing is being done. You are not pulling the grass upwards; the spring comes and the grass grows by itself.
