Meditation Master Babaji talks about how inbetween all the thoughts that crop up in the mind, there is a gap, a space. That is the true nature of the mind – our attention goes to the gap when we simply watch in the meditation and do not analyze or judge what comes up.
“As the thoughts keep arising, millions of thoughts also come, but inbetween every thought, a small gap happens. That gap is the space. That space is the consciousness. When the thought comes, during that time of thought, that consciousness, though it is there behind that thought, it doesn’t appear to be there because your attention is drawn by the thought. But inbetween there is a gap.
So slowly as you go on watching, watching, watching in the meditation your mind gains attention onto the gap, slowly forgets about the thought when it does not analyze, when it does not make a judgement. That is the idea of ‘just watch, watch, watch’ we keep repeatedly telling so to make you watch that space. When your mind watches that space, your mind also becomes that space, means both become consciousness and you realise they are both the one and same. That’s how pure consciousness appears and there is no more thought.”~Shiva Rudra Balayogi
