Meditation and the Fourth Moment

You have past, present, and future, and then you have the fourth moment.

An Act of Nonduality

Meditation should not be regarded as a learning process. It should be regarded as an experiencing process. You should not try to learn from meditation but try to feel it… Meditation is an act of nonduality. The technique you are using should not be separate from you; it is you, you are the technique. Meditator and meditation are one. There is no relationship involved.
