How to attain stillness/breathlessness after practicing meditation techniques:
notes taken during a talk by Brother Bhaktananda
Be aware of spiritual eye alone;
Push out any thoughts that come;
No chanting, praying, thinking;
No techniques, no devotion;
Utterly surrender to God;
Keep awareness only at spiritual eye,
Gently wrinkle eyebrows or squint eye lids; No straining.
Gradually stillness increases and the breathless state can manifest.
When you can no longer hold onto stillness then practice devotion; give your heart’s natural love to God.
