Non-meditating - Meditative StatePeople "meditate" for many different reasons. Some call it meditation when it is really just sitting quietly and thinking over their problems. To me this is not mediation.
Meditation to me is reaching a state of absolute stillness and emptiness. While in this state, I am not thinking about anything, I am not even meditating, I call this "a not-meditating - meditative state". It is like shutting down a computer. Awakening from this state is like turning the computer on, it reboots with the all system processes restored to their intended state. When I rouse from this state I am at peace with the world like a new born child. For a short time I have new incite into matters that I hardly understood before, I get great pleasure form the simplest things. Sex right after arousing from this state is so amazing I cannot even start to describe it. Unfortunately, this "new awakening" only lasts for a short time. My goal is to reach a level where this state will be permanent, then I will be "awakened".
I am a Soto Zen Buddhist and have been one all my life.
