Meditation in front of the TV- A modern way to increase awareness.

Yes, you heard it right… Meditation , alertness , awareness is very much possible sitting in front of a television… the idiot box.. Its a new age technique that is not known to the modern day world…You may not find a mention of it in Conventional Spiritual books….(They are way too focussed on God and the “holier than thou” paraphernalia!!)

As always there are certain terms and conditions that apply… I can’t imagine a single entity … a single human emotion.. including love… which is truly un- conditional, free from the clutches of T&C apply…

So here goes…

All You need do sit in front of the “Idiot Box”…Simple… The only hitch is that the Tele-vision is turned off 😉

Once the above statement has turned you off as well 🙂 , then start a new kind of mind game with the highly benevolent TV screen… staring back at you in all blackness.. whether it be a SONY, LG, SAMSUNG…LCD, LED… doesn’t matter.. They are all equal facilitators in blackness..

All that is needed to be done… sitting in front of the TV screen… is WATCH…

WATCH the thought flow… the content of your mind…. getting televised …getting projected onto the screen…and just watch the show… watch the continuous stream of thoughts that get projected… watch the random…scattered…unrelated thoughts that get projected onto the TV screen…

WATCH the angry……comical…devilish…..pleasant…condemnable…vengeful.. hurtful… comparison-al…tired…frustrated… sexual… thoughts that get projected.. from your mind factory onto the TV screen

Thoughts that take a life… that manifest visually…through the mind…projected onto the TV….there is a drama getting enacted… a rather crazy one too….meaningless…incoherent…Come to think of it…its not much different from the stuff that’s actually bombarded onto the TV screen…

Difficult at first…Crazy… Laughable… Too simple… may be the initial reactions… The mind is a great sceptic..it loves to ridicule anything new that gets presented to it… that’s its very intrinsic nature… anything unknown and the mind clamps down…

Many can possibly co-relate with this clamping down of the mind…especially in the face of encountering something new… It loves to float within the boundaries of what it knows…within the familiar…It loves a pattern…Anything unfamiliar… unknown… is immediately a threat…

Once this nature of the mind is known….is realized…

its easier to implement this crazy, yet undemanding experiment… one originating from absolute insanity… and if implemented….after having broken/overcome the shackles of the logical mind…. would lead towards sanity… would lead towards awareness realization…alertness enhancement…

And one fine day…watching this projection… of your thoughts on the TV …suddenly you just laugh at this madness of the mind factory… at the madhouse within….and the quality of Awareness is strengthened some more….

You realize….You are no longer your thoughts…
