The Essence of Meditation RevealedNo matter which spiritual techniques you practice, it all really comes down to attention.  

Whether you are watching your breath or repeating the name of a Guru or God, or are asking "who am I" or witnessing or surrendering,  they all require your complete attention.

And it is through the practice of attention that you grow in awareness.  

Understanding intellectually only gets you on to the path.  

Through practice you experience what the words point to.  

And through experience, that which you are seeking becomes your reality.  

But if you buy into the idea that you do not need to practice, then the mind remains in power.

You remain a slave to all of the thoughts and emotions.

You remain at the mercy of chasing one desire after another, one worry after another
until so much time has passed that you wonder where your life went.  

Attention at first does require discipline.  

But the moment you give your complete attention to what is happening here, rather then allowing the thinking to control you, there is extraordinary peace.  

And you will fall in love with the peace, you will fall in love with the practice.

In the same way when you fall in love with someone you want to spend all of your time with them,   when you fall in love with attention you will want to immerse yourself in attention.  

You will cherish it more than anything.  

And because of that love for attention you become attention itself.  

Fall in love with bliss and you become bliss.  

You don't leave it in the corner of a room, you give it your complete focus.
