The Zen people say,’’ sitting silently ,doing nothing, spring comes and the grass grows by itself.’ you have only to sit silently doing nothing, everything goes on happening of its own accord: the spring will come and the grass will grow. just like that, everything is going to happen; you need not do it. Meditation is not something that has to be understood.
If you understand meditation
then that is enough: sitting
silently anywhere you can fall into meditativeness.
Meditativeness is not action but a state of silence, a state of
inaction when everything stops, all movement disappears,
you are in total rest. And those are the moments when you know that you are immortal, that only the body will die, then all fear disappears because all fear is rooted in death. and to be fearless is the most fundamental thing for living life joyously.
