How can we use intention while meditating in the “gap”?.


When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.


First I want to thank you for all the things that I learned from you in the past years. I have a question about the gap between the thoughts. You constantly say that when we have desire we should go into the gap and release the desire into the field of pure potentiality. But when I go into the gap in meditation or in other form of silent mind. I can’t think about anything. That means I don’t have desires there. I don’t have thoughts or wishes or desires or anything else. There is nothing there. So how can I release my desire in the gap? How can I remember my desire in that state?



When you begin to experience the gap between thoughts, it is a blank, inactive, non-thinking place. You’re right, once you start thinking or desiring something, it brings you out of the gap. But after you have been meditating for some time, that experience of the gap becomes less fragile. There comes a time when you are well enough established in the gap that small distractions and passing thoughts do not disturb you or bring you out of that silence. This is a mature experience of the gap, where you can have an intention or desire and still remain in the stillness of the Self. This is the state of awareness where you can have an intention and then release it into the field of pure potentiality while your attention returns to silent mind.
