Try to concentrate on the gap between two thoughts
What is mind? The mind is a chain of continuously arising thoughts you go from one thought to another thought but you miss the gap of two thoughts there is a gap between two thoughts.
Sit in a comfortable posture in Indian yoga system that is called Asana it may be lotus or half lotus asana cross your legs and your back should be straight from pelvis to your neck when you sit in a straight position your mind power which resides at Muladhara chakra starts flowing to upwards.Close your eyes and try to be aware of your thoughts and try to find the gap between two thoughts then you will see that there is a gap between two thoughts that is pure silence as you will go deep you will find gap has been widening and thoughts are becoming lesser and lesser.As your dhyana will go deep you will find that there are no thoughts this is a thoughtless stage when you achieve that state then minds power will generate than the power of thoughts will generate and you will feel an eternal peace joy and happiness which is not depend on any condition that is unconditional.You have to p[ractise it almost 30 minutes daily.
Imagination when you hear that word you think it is a futile thing but in Tantra,s meditation techniques imagination has a very important place according to devotees of tantra imagination may be converted into the reality that is possible by practice of tantra,s meditation techniques.You have the power which can convert imagination into reality by imagination you can develop your mind power and only by imagination you can deteriorate it so imagination is very powerful which can make you successful in every field of life.
How to convert imagination into reality-
First, understand what is imagination. Imagination is not a thought but imagination is to go deep inside with some vision and you have to feel it not a single thought should come in your mind that it is an imagination deeply believe that it is a reality.
Tibetan lama practices a method of yoga called it Heat Yoga in cold wave snow is falling Tibetan lama stands with naked body in open area and temperature is -10-degree celsius and he imagine that his body is beam of fire and sweat is coming out from his body and you will see sweat is coming out imagination has been converted into reality sweat is real but by-product of imagination only you need to harmonise with imagination and with yourself. In tantra, there are so many methods based on imagination will power and mindfulness that will discuss later
Everyone at the earth is living with an ego to be egoistic it is not necessary to have an unlimited wealth or higher post or beautiful figure if one which is not having any of these may be more egoistic than who have all these.
The Egolessness is the state when you have not your existence physically you are there but mentally you lose your identity that is the state of egolessness and in your life when you feel some moment of joy or ecstasy is due to you have not any ego at that moment.
Ego is hurdle in expansion of yourself-
An egoistic person can not connect with people deeply two people can connect only when there is not any ego love only happen when you are egoless with ego you can make the relationship but there will be no love.
Ego is hurdle between god and yourself-
God is ready to meet with you the only ego is a wall between you and god as you become egoless you become one with god now you are not only god is present there all meditation techniques all yogas all mindfulness techniques are trying to make you egoless.
Timelessness egolessness and thoughtlessness when these three states come together in your life then you are the state of eternal joy and happiness then you are in the state of super-consciousness in the of samadhi which is the highest state of yoga then soul and god become one then no one can disturb your peace your happiness your joy.
Meditation is not an achievement which you can add to your success list in your life but it is a process of transformation of yourself.If you are ready to transform your life ready to dissolve yourself than Meditation is your path on that only you have move no one can do this for you.
I have met a devotee who practices a meditation technique for many years but if you look at him he remained more tense than people who are busy in family and in achieving your ambitions I talked with him because I feel that some something going wrong with him and he told him he is practising Meditation for many years but not succeed yet and I have to achieve supreme state of Meditation in that birth . Some people failed in materialistic life and moves to add atm than they want to achieve god they want to achieve Meditation to announce that they have got samadhi supreme state of consciousness.
Transformation of mind
Meditation is the transformation of mind Meditation is not an act you have done for one hour and rest of the life is same than Meditation is nothing more than exercise. One hour of meditation will change your rest of life if you are on right path of meditation you will become a different person you wisdom your mind power will enhance.
Transformation of thoughts
When your mind become thoughtless by witnessing of thoughts then power of thought will generate than you can transform this world by your thoughts then your thoughts will not be the copy of your religious books but thoughts can create religious men on this earth
