No Mind Meditation


First Stage – 30 minutes:  Close your eyes and begin to say nonsense sounds – gibberish. Make any sounds you like, but do not speak in a language, or use words that you know. Allow yourself to express whatever needs to be expressed. Throw everything out, go totally mad. Go consciously crazy. The mind thinks in terms of words. Gibberish helps to break up this pattern of continues words. Without suppressing your thoughts, you can throw them out in gibberish. Everything is allowed: sing, cry, shout, scream, mumble. Let your body do whatever it wants: jump, lie down, pace, sit, kick and so on. Do not let empty spaces happen. If you cannot find sounds, just say la, la, la, la, but don’t remain silent. While doing this meditation with others, do not relate or interfere with them in any way. Just stay with what is happening in you, and don’t bother about what others are doing.

Second Stage – 15 minutes:  After the gibberish, sit absolutely still, silent and relaxed, gathering your energy inwards, letting the thoughts drift. You may sit on the floor or use a chair. Your head and back should be straight, your body relaxed, your eyes closed and your breathing natural.

Remember, the first step of the meditation is gibberish. And gibberish simply means throwing out your craziness, which is already there in the mind, piled up for centuries. As you throw it out you will find yourself becoming light, becoming more alive, just within minutes.

In fact in that time, if you put your total energy ... the more you put into it, the deeper will be the following silence. So don’t be partial, don’t be middle-class. Just be a first-rate crazy man!
