Take your time with each of these, really take your time with them…
1. Do not get involved with life. Allow the body-mind to look after itself. Allow everything to come and go.
2. Relax and be still.
3. Do not take yourself to be a person, a body-mind. Here the questions ‘Who am I?’ and ‘From where does ‘I’ arise?’ can be useful initially, as can the assertions ‘I am not the body-mind-world’ and ‘I am That’. Relaxation and stillness are also useful here.
4. To rest in that state where one is aware but no ‘I’ thought arises is stillness. In time resting here will lead to realisation, but there must be no thought of realisation as this itself is a disturbance, a distortion.
5. Know that all is nothing,
Everything is nothing,
Nothing is here…
There is only That…
…not even That.
