Contemplate Beyond Perception

We understand ourselves and everything around us through what we see and how our mind translates that information. What is beyond it, we have no idea!  In this 10 minute technique, we learn to move  ahead of all things known. Whatever your mind can grasp, throw it out of your mind. This is the technique!

Space and time, past and future are all nothing but the web spun by your mind. The moment your mind can grasp something, you are caught in the web of the mind. The only way you can leap out of the mind, is to think about something that you cannot think about! The moment you perceive anything, the moment you are able to think about it, it becomes the past. You are no longer in the present moment. For instance, when you are told to think of something that is beyond your thoughts, you may think of the entire solar system. But the moment you think about the entire solar system, you have already made that into one more thought! So now, drop that. Try to think beyond! You might think about the galaxy, beyond the solar system. When you are able to think of the galaxy, then drop that thought. Go beyond the galaxy. When you continuously expand your mind to go beyond, you will be in the present moment. Understand, the moment you are able to grasp something and think about it, you have already made it into the past, into your property. Your mind can flourish there.

So think further and further beyond what you can think. Even if you are thinking about what you can’t think about, drop that. The mind will always try to grasp everything and keep it in storage, so it can eat slowly and ruminate, just like a bull! So do not bring the things that you have already grasped back into the mind. Continuously drop them. Whatever you think is the ultimate in your life, drop it, and expand your thinking to something bigger. Of course, your mind will automatically grasp something else. But don’t allow your mind to hold that idea, drop it also. Then your mind will say, ‘If I am dropping every moment, then what will happen to me? Where will it end?’ Don’t bother about this ending. Your mind is just trying to grasp onto something by asking you this question. Your mind is asking you to prove the result before even starting the practice. Do not allow it. That is where you get cheated. Constantly keep dropping each boundary, each thought, and expanding, going beyond.

Meditate on the real master, or the real Source or the real God. You may think you have grasped the essence of God, but it can never be, because your mind can never grasp the real God! If your mind can grasp God, it means your mind is greater than God! So what you grasped is not God, it is just your idea of God. Drop the idea and try again. Grasp something bigger than that idea! Continuously try to grasp the ultimate truth. For some of you, the very first time you grasp it, this technique can simply throw you out of your thinking mind. Just trying to follow this technique is enough to give you a glimpse of the truth! Even otherwise, just keep discarding and expanding, keep breaking the boundary and going beyond. Understand, when you throw a particular idea out of your mind, not only do you throw that idea, you also pick up one part of the bone structure of your mind and throw it out. Every time you pick up some thoughts from your mind and throw them out, not only are the thoughts discarded, but one part of the bone structure of your mind is also thrown away. When you continuously discard, finally there will not be any bone structure left! Suddenly you will see your whole mind has been thrown out! You will experience the bliss of no-mind.
