meditation is not a doing

We don't have to try to silence the mind and stop our thoughts. This will produce the opposite effect; whatever thoughts we try to suppress will grow stronger.

We don't have to try to do anything at all. We can just close our eyes and sit, watching what's happening inside as if we were watching a multi-sensory, multi-dimensional scene playing out. And the process starts to happen on its own. Little by little, meditation comes.

All there is to do is sit.
