Meditating on Meditation

meditationWondering how to meditate?

I love this clarifying passage from J. Krishnamurti:

Meditation is not words, a mantra, or self-hypnosis, the drug of illusions. It must happen without  your volition. It must take place in the quiet stillness of night, when you see that you are suddenly awake and the brain is quiet and there is a peculiar quality of meditation going on. It must take place as silently as a snake in the tall grass, green in the fresh morning light. It must take place in the deep recesses of the brain. Meditation is not an achievement. There is no method, system or practice. Meditation begins with the ending of comparison, the ending of becoming or not becoming. As a bee whispers among the leaves so the whispering of meditation is action.
