5 Keys for Right Meditation

An Outline of Right Meditation


What Is Right Meditation?

“Be the witness of your thoughts.” —Gautama Buddha

“But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.” —Ephesians 5:13

“When our mind works freely without any hindrance, and is at liberty to ‘come’ or to ‘go,’ we attain Samadhi of Prajna, or liberation. Such a state is called the function of ‘thoughtlessness’. But to refrain from thinking of anything, so that all thoughts are suppressed is to be Dharma ridden, and this is an erroneous view.” —Huineng


Right Meditation Outlined in 8 Sections


1• The 5 Keys of Right Meditation

  1. detachment
  2. faith
  3. nondoing
  4. waiting
  5. unconditional acceptance

2• Detach your identity from all sensations, feelings, thoughts, and memories.

  • You are not your sensations, feelings, thoughts, or memories.
  • Your body will identify with its sensations, but you do not have to.

3• Sensations, feelings, thoughts, and memories need unconditional acceptance.

  • Right meditation requires the full exposure of whatever is in you, whether right or wrong.
  • You need to practice unconditional acceptance to allow inner states to reveal themselves inside you fully.
  • This is also known as choiceless awareness.

4• Do nothing to any sensation, feeling, thought, or memory.

  • Doing nothing to your inner content is to practice nondoing.
  • This is also spoken of as the way of noninterference.

5• Be fully aware and conscious of every sensation, feeling, thought, or memory.

  • Pay attention to whatever arises inside you and follow it out.
  • This author speaks of this as following things out and hearing things out.
  • Fully listening to and paying attention to something will lead to its dissipation or release.

6• Ask for and wait on positive Energy.

  • While you bear, face, and stand every sensation, feeling, thought, or memory just as it is, you must do this before the Light.
  • You bring all to the Light.
  • You turn all over to God.

7• Have belief, faith, or hope in positive Energy.

  • The positive Energy will completely and perfectly handle, process, and understand every sensation, feeling, thought, or memory.
  • You must believe in the power of the Light.

8• Positive Energy arrives in the same space to replace the negative.

  • The space held by any negative sensation, feeling, thought, or memory, must be entered by and occupied by the positive Energy for the Light to dissolve and entirely replace that negative event.
  • All this is done entirely without your assistance.
  • You merely watch and wait.
