When you turn your head from horizon to horizon your eyes see a vast space in which all the things of the earth and of the sky appear. But this space is always limited where the earth meets the sky. The space in the mind is so small. In this little space all our activities seem to take place: the daily living and the hidden struggles with contradictory desires and motives. In this little space the mind seeks freedom, and so it is always a prisoner of itself. Meditation is the ending of this little space. To us, action is bringing about order in this little space of the mind. But there is another action which is not putting order in this little space. Meditation is action which comes when the mind has lost its little space. This vast space which the mind, the I, cannot reach, is silence. The mind can never be silent within itself; it is silent only within the vast space which thought cannot touch. Out of this silence there is action which is not of thought. Meditation is this silence.

Khalsa Fateh ji, hello sister, i am 15 just a year older then you age means nothing i must say i guess the youth are the future of the khalsa panth!

medi - tation the joining of these ywo words medicine vibration

when or soul longs for the lord the only medicine it can be given is to vibrate on the universe. i undertstand the stage you are at in which everything seems so contained but once you the boundreys of the four walls have been overcome you relize that there is only god vibrating everywhere. further still there is no planet there is no nothing; this reality that we have created for our minds is the falsehood of visuality. every thing is just vibration. one vibration. as you meditate your mind will open those million thought will depleat untill they are silenced
