What you have to do is to expose yourself to it (Gods Grace flows from Shri Mataji’s photo in the form of radiations-chaitanya).
The best way is not to put in any effort.
Don’t worry at what point you have a problem.
Many people during meditation, I have seen if they catch somewhere they go on looking after it. You just don’t have to worry. You just let it go and it will work by itself. It’s very easy.
Meditation means exposing yourself to God’s grace
So you don’t have to put in any effort. This is what meditation is. Meditation means exposing yourself to God’s grace (Paramatma ki Kripa – param chaitanya).
- 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.
Supposing there’s a possibility, you may not be thoughtless. At that time you have to just watch your thoughts, but don’t get involved into them.
You will find gradually as the sun rises, the darkness goes away and the sun’s rays go into every crevice and every part and makes the whole place lighted.
In the same way your being will be completely lighted, but if you put in an effort that time or try to stop something within you or try to give it a bandhan it will not.
Effortlessness is the only way to meditation, but you should not be lethargic about it – should be alert and watch it.
