- Do not think that meditation is a continuance and an expansion of experience.
In experience there is always the witness and he is ever tied to the past.
Meditation, on the contrary, is that complete inaction which is the ending of all experience.
The action of experience has its roots in the past and so it is time-binding;
it leads to action which is inaction, and brings disorder.
Meditation is the total inaction which comes out of a mind that sees what is, without the entanglement of the past.
This action is not a response to any challenge but is the action of the challenge itself, in which there is no duality.
Meditation is the emptying of experience and is going on all the tine, consciously or unconsciously, so it is not an action limited to a certain period during the day.
It is a continuous action from morning till night - the watching without the watcher.
Therefore there is no division between the daily life and meditation, the religious life and the secular life.
The division comes only when the watcher is tied to time.
In this division there is disarray, misery and confusion, which is the state of society.
So meditation is not individualistic, nor is it social, it transcends both and so includes both.
This is love: the flowering of love is meditation.
