Meditation can be taught through metaphors or instruction.The former makes it esoteric and difficult to attain, while the latter makes it dry and difficult to attain.But meditation through metaphors have a certain je ne sais quoi .
This is one of those metaphors.
But there will be instructions if one wants to try it out.
Sit or lie down in a quiet place where you won’t be disturbed or distracted for at least 20 minutes.
Close your eyes, relax all your muscles and maintain a good and comfortable posture.
Breathe deeply in a regular rhythm.
Listen to your heart beat and feel your blood pulse.
Observe your thoughts.
Let your thoughts and sensations come forth effortlessly.
Bathe in your thoughts and let them flow, like water from the shower head, gently falling on the body and flowing downwards.
Just like the water from the shower head falling on the body, you don’t have to interact with your thoughts.
All you have to do is feel and observe.
Now, realise that all thoughts are quantum particles.
Like certain quantum particles, thoughts not only flow on you, they also flow through you, and there is nothing much to do but observe.
Interaction is inevitable, but reaction to it is not a must.
Observe the organic synthesis of thoughts and memories and feelings it generates.
Observe and report to self, but keep aside action and reaction for later, for this is the time to meditate.
You are in your body, inside your head, where the only limitations are what you believe in.
Stop when you feel like it.
