When you sit, naturally some thoughts will come. The moment you see a thought coming, do not give meaning to it. You give it meaning only if you connect it with your past. Without giving meaning to it just remember to unclutch, and see what happens.
The moment you remember, ‘Let me unclutch from this thought, let me not give meaning to it,’ for a few seconds there will be a small silent gap. The moment you are aware that there is a silence, it will become one more thought. Then unclutch from that thought also. Then, again there will be a gap of a few seconds. Then, one more thought will come, ‘I am in silence’ or ‘I am unclutching’. Unclutch from that thought also. Just the gap or the silence should become longer and longer. That is the whole idea.
Naturally it is the nature of the mind to wander somewhere after a few minutes. The moment you remember or become aware that the mind has wandered, unclutch. There is no need to have guilt or be agitated that the mind has wandered. The moment you remember, unclutch, that’s all.
In the initial level it may be very gross, like a solid fight. You may have to utter the word ‘unclutching’ like a mantra. But in just a few moments, you will see it becomes a subtle process.
Every moment will be new.
Every moment will be ecstasy.
Every moment will be joy.
Every moment will be excitement.
Unclutching is the source of unending excitement – nithyananda spurana.
