Satyashri Sant Vivek
An adventure is usually considered to be an exciting, unusual risky undertaking having an uncertain outcome. It can include exploring both physical and psychological world. Every moment of life itself is a daring adventure. It is risk all the time, exploring all the time, inside or outside the body. While outward adventurous activities are generally for recreation purposes giving short term excitement, the greatest adventure giving permanent excitement is the inward adventure, the Meditation.
As in the external world, adventure means doing something exiting and unusual, same way in the inward world it has to be something exciting and unusual. Usually man is always engrossed in thoughts, actions or emotions. Don't you feel going against your normal routine, doing nothing, no action, having no thought or emotion is adventurous? Meditating, just remaining in the substance of which you are made of, pure bliss, when there is no mental or physical activity.
But can anyone do or practice this? For centuries humans have been trying to devise ways to achieve this state of bliss. They have designed various methods and techniques but very few have been able to reach the summit. The foremost reason is that they have been trying to reach the state of doing nothing with doing too much activity. They have been trying to reach the state of thoughtlessness by thinking. They have been trying to control emotions by suppressing. The approach was wrong. Thinking and concentrating is also doing. One cannot do it. One can only understand it. Those who understood, found the right path and achieved easily and comfortably without any effort.
Do all Actions while being Aware of Consciousness
This doesn't mean that meditation is against action. It fact it means to do all actions while being aware of your consciousness, your inner core. With the understanding when you reach the inner core of your being, you experience extreme silence and bliss. With practice you can remain in this state 24x7. Now even while doing your daily activities and actions you will remain aware of your Self, without any action, thought or emotion of the outer world affecting your inner core. This is the beauty of meditation, the real way of living, becoming the centre point of a spinning top.
