Effortlessness - How to Meditate
So you don't have to put in any effort, this is what meditation is. Meditation means exposing yourself to God's Grace. Now the Grace itself knows how to cure you… it knows how to mend you… how to settle down itself into your own being… keep your spirit kindled… it knows everything. So you don't have to worry as to what you have to do, or what name you have to take… what mantras you have to do. In meditation you have to be absolutely effortless. Expose yourself fully… and you have to be absolutely thoughtless at that time (800101)
The other side could be people just doze off… no, you have to be alert. If you doze off nothing will work. That’s another side of it, if you are lazy about it nothing will work. You have to be alert and open… absolutely aware… completely effortless, absolutely effortless… if you are absolutely effortless, meditation will work the best. Don't think of your problems at all… whatever chakras you have, anything… just expose yourself (800101)
In the same way the All Pervading Power starts working… you are not to manoeuvre it… you are not to do anything about it… just be effortless… absolutely effortless… don't take any names, do not bother if your Agnya is catching, this is catching, that is catching - it is working out! It will go on working as long as it can, and it will do the miracle that it has to do… you don't have to worry about it, it knows its job. But when you put in an effort actually, you create a barrier for it. So no effort is needed, be absolutely effortless and say let it go, let it go, that’s all… no mantras to be chanted…
When you put your hand towards me that's the mantra… is sufficient, this gesture itself is the mantra. You see there is no need to say it more… but with the thought in the mind, the emotion should be there… we have now spread our hands to that, and it should work. When this emotion is absolutely complete… there is no need to say any mantra, you go beyond it… so one has to be absolutely effortless, absolutely effortless… that is what it is.
Meditation is for your own ascent… is for your own capital gains, that you have to have… but once you get into it, you also achieve your powers… like, you become a governor, you get the powers of the governor. At this time you don't have to think about anybody else, you are not to put your attention to anybody else, but just receive it… just receive it. Do not think of any other problem, but that… that you have to be effortless… absolutely effortless. It would work best on the people who are just receiving it.
You have problems, that’s why you are here… but you cannot solve them - they are to be solved by Divine Power. This must be understood fully, that we cannot solve our problems. It is beyond us… to solve our problems. So, leave it in the hands of the Divine Power, and expose yourself effortlessly… absolutely effortlessly. Sit in comfort and… properly, with both the feet on the ground, with both the hands relaxed like this… be comfortable, you should not be uncomfortable at all… be very comfortable, because you have to sit for quite some time… and you try to put your attention to me, within yourself… if you can… to my Kundalini, if you can.
