Meditation is just Total Thinking. Now, what does this mean?

Generally when a person commences meditation, there is the initial attempt to concentrate the mind on one thought or a few thoughts as one would like to entertain, and at the same time there is a simultaneous attempt of the mind to reject certain other thoughts which one considers as irrelevant, obstructive or distracting. But here, in this process, one peculiarity hidden behind is mostly forgotten. And that is the impossibility of rejecting certain thoughts and entertaining only certain other thoughts which are regarded as conducive. The question here is: how would the mind entertain some thought and reject some other thought without being simultaneously aware that the rejected thought also is existing somewhere. In order to be able to reject one particular thought the mind, which rejects the thought, should also be present in the rejected thought. Hence no thought has been rejected, for the simple reason that the consciousness of rejection is also a thought. What is the remedy now?

It is necessary here to exercise great attention and bring about a reconciliation between the chosen thought and the rejected thought. How would this be possible since it is only the mind once again that has to effect this reconciliation. This would mean that the mind has to be present in the selected thought and the rejected thought as a third thought altogether, which is something astounding even to imagine. This third thought is not the thought of the chosen object and not also the thought of the rejected object. It is what they call a tertium quid which is for all practical purposes a miracle which ordinary thought cannot comprehend. This third thought is the total thought referred to above because it is present both in the chosen thought and the rejected thought and remains as an umpire between the chosen thought and the rejected thought.

Thus it would mean that the meditator is not the mind that is choosing a particular thought nor the one that is rejecting the thought. But to repeat once again, the total thought here rises a surprising impersonality of observation and the common complaint that the mind gets distracted on meditation vanished automatically. The so-called distraction that people complain about is attachment for one thought and hatred for another thought. Meditation is not on either the chosen thought or the rejected thought but the transcendent thought which rises above both the thoughts and yet is immanent in both.

Now, another trouble may arise inspite of all this effort mentioned above. This so-called transcendent thought is also a thought. But whose thought is it? It is necessary for every aspirant to recognise the tricky character of the mind. No one can be a great trickster than the mind of one’s own self. It is clever in deceiving itself. This transcendent thought, being also a thought, is to be contained in the mind, no doubt, but, beware, in a wider mind than the mind which brought about a division between the chosen thought and the rejected thought. The universe is wider than whatever the mind can think. It is therefore necessary to extend the boundary of this transcended thought further on by making it once again a chosen thought different from what any other thing that there may be in the universe. This process should go on almost indefinitely until the absolute reconciliation is achieved whereby what we call the world does not stand outside as a object to be rejected by gets reconciled with the great subjectivity achieved by the earlier processes. Philosophically this process is designated as position, opposition and reconciliation of thought which exercise the mind rises to the concept of God Almighty in which it absorbs itself in a state of perfect union and there would be no complaint hence forth about distraction and flitting of the mind from one place to another place. A meditator should also be a good psychologist, not to teach psychology to someone else but to understand one’s own mind. The greatest problem arises from one’s own self and not from anyone else.

All this is to say that a spiritual thought should be a total thought, virtually a universal thought.

Third Eye Meditation Practice

During our online meeting, I will guide you through a meditation session for you to have a Third Eye perception experience. You do not need to know how to meditate prior to this session. You do not need to have any special gifts or abilities. Everyone has the potential ability to experience a non-3D experience.

I will use my shamanic practices to help you enter that state, where you can perceive with your Third Eye. I will be doing some blessing and energy work in the background to help you perceive with your Third Eye.

All you need is a desire to experience Third Eye perception and to have questions. Questions towards yourself, towards anybody and anything, and regarding whatever you are curious about.

Once you have had your Third Eye perception experience, it will be easier to continue developing it on your own.

It is my intention to leave you with a personalized set of tools for you to be able to continue to practice and develop your Third Eye perception on your own after our session.

I recommend having at least one question ready for our meditation session. It could be something you wanted to ask from your higher self/your soul, your guides, or just to get more information on a particular topic of your interest.

Developing my Third Eye perception has been one of the most exciting things in my life. I want to share this ability with you so that you too can start your amazing Third Eye journey of this lifetime.

Remember, the experience you seek is also seeking you!

  • Please make an appointment with me at least one day in advance. Thank you.

[Discounted] 1-on-1 Coaching: Experience The Enlightened Self

During this 60 minute 1-on-1 coaching session, you are paying for my undivided attention, not the onset of Enlightenment, which is freely available on my website via a prerecorded audio instructional.

My recommendation is to experience the proof of a truly Enlightening Experience of Freedom, first; then book direct coaching, should you feel the need for an in depth and personalized clarification as to how this experience can be embodied in every moment of your waking life.

Otherwise, leave a review and continue to practice it daily, before getting too involved in the day.

The result of sufficient understanding, which can happen intuitively with patient self-inquire, or rapidly with direct coaching is the ongoing experience of peace, love and joy; plus the removal of all doubt & sorrow as you progress through your own sanctification unto full Liberation.

At present, I do have a book in the works that will clarify 100% of what needs to be known to secure Enlightenment for the average person, but that work will not be readily available until later this year (2022).

I look forward to directly introducing you to The Kingdom, within.

Hallelujah, forevermore.


This $10 service is only applicable if you consent to allowing me to record the meditation and conversation so as to use it as content in later publications. If you do not consent, please select the alternative, $150 option.
