Cessation of Thought

Cessation of thought in everyday life is not the same as not-thinking in meditation.

And it is not spacing out, being in awe, or being lost in reverie.

Nor is it being without any mental faculty, for how long can that really work?

It is a suspension of reasoning without becoming unreasonable.

It is the quiet in your mind while there is no movement in consciousness.

Feeling is in the background because the self does not dominate experience.

Independent will is relaxed and unconsciously waiting for direction.

One’s existence spontaneously manifests with love, directed by wisdom.

Absolute knowing informs there could be no other way, nor is another desired.

Timelessness, eternity, and peace prevail, and without anticipation, a fresh moment appears.
