      At some point in meditation
      when all expectations cease
      when no more questions come
      the mind slips into an easy
      ride on the balanced rhythm
      of each breath and into the
      absolute point of stillness

      In this noble silence there
      is no more awareness of the
      breath or the physical body
      or the volition to meditate

      Out of this emptiness comes
      a startling new wisdom that
      is at the core of all paths
      and known by the mystics of
      all spiritual traditions in
      the world as written in the
      scriptures and contemporary
      text and teachings that are
      part of the ancient of days

      Once a meditator visits the
      enchanted joy of meditation
      then all the searching ends
      and the effortlessness that
      moves life spontaneously is
      known as the authentic life
      and bliss beyond belief now
      overtakes what was formerly
      fear and doubt and darkness

      And the one who entered the
      meditation emerges as a new
      creation with understanding
      and joy that can not be put
      into words other than sound
      that resonates in the heart

        Yo Papajeff,
        Thanks for this very eloquent and right on
        post. It stimulated thoughts within
        that went towards thinking about the word
        "enchanted", in regard to its meaning of
        something like bewitched or under a spell.
        And this leads to the concept of meditation
        as being a way to awaken and break out of the
        spells/delusions that we are under, such as
        that we are apart from the rest of the universe
        instead of a part of all and everything, or
        that we are (what happens to) our body, our
        mind, our emotions, etc., or that "Thy will
        be done" doesn't apply to us and that we
        "can do", and so on and so on. And to mimic
        and paraphrase your last line, 'And the one who
        enters into meditation emerges as an ancient
        creation with understanding and joy that is
        our real baseline.'
        Thanks again.
        Peace and blessings,
        Bob
