Some of my spiritual friends and I have been meeting almost every night for about an hour, to meditate. It is very interesting that we are able to easily connect with each other irrespective of the physical distance between each other, simply by tuning our awareness on the others. The result is a big surge of energy and entry into a deep stillness/silence.
Two of my friends and I have been at it for a while now, and two others joined in after being told by our master to join us. They struggle a bit conceptually because the process is so alien to them.
Typically when we conceptualize meditation, we think of eyes closed, sitting or standing, and even moving (if it is the qigong/taijiquan type of meditation). There is always some doing. But in our meditation, we rest in silence/stillness with absolutely nothing to do vis-a-vis meditation. And we might not even maintain silence, as we abide in the stillness as the backdrop, and still manage to have conversations, discuss details of the wisdom traditions.
So one friend decided to ask Master about this underlying silence/stillness/emptiness that is revealed when we focus our attention on it. Master said (and I paraphrase what my friend told me), "It is the Big Dao...it is also your own Being".
In Vedantic tradition, this stillness/silence is the Self within in which all phenomena rise and fall.
