Find the unchanging Self in Meditation
The quote of the Sage says that we find the unchanging Self where the senses and ego are not. Then where is it to be found? In our everyday waking state awareness, there is never a moment where the senses or the sense of I/ego are not alive and active. The senses are collecting experiences and the thinking mechanism is producing thoughts in the mind from the moment we wake up in the morning, until we fall into deep sleep at night. As long this process is active, the sense of I is engaged in it, interpreting what the senses perceive and acting on these perceptions according to what we think must be done.
With all this activity keeping the ego involved and awake, it is safe to say that we won’t find a space within the waking state experience where ego or the senses are not. So what state is the Sage referring to? He is talking about a state of consciousness that can open only through Meditation.
When we close our eyes, our attention is drawn inward, away from the sensory perceptions. We are left with the more subtle perceptions of the activity in our mind. Moving ever deeper on our inward journey, we notice that we are actually able to watch the comings and goings of our thoughts. More importantly, we notice that the One watching and knowing the thoughts is free – free for their meaning, free from their imaginary power or their influence. This Knower Being is our own Highest Self. It is who we truly are - free from ego, from the senses, from thoughts, words and their meaning. Pure Free Forever.
