Meditation question. Please help?

- Advertisement -

I am practicing Pranayama Yoga meditation and Zen Meditation ( I started about 2 weeks ago). I was told that thoughts come but you must focus on your breathing, which I do. But when I meditate I have NO thoughts coming and bother me. Is it normal? My Meditation is fine but Am I normal? All the people who practice meditation told me that thoughts come over and one should allow them to flow but concentrate on the breathing only. How come that I have no thoughts during meditation?

I am the same way. It’s like having to multitask – concentrating on breathing and thinking at the same time. I just breathe and concentrate on my thoughts.


Are you Muslim? See the link.


Everyone has a different experience during Zen meditation.
Some people have a very active mind, others have a very calm mind. And some people who started out with an active mind later discover that their mind is calm…and vice versa.
As it turns out, one’s subjective experience is a very poor guide to the quality of one’s meditation.
The main thing is to continue your practice. If thoughts come, allow them to come and go without attaching to them. If your mind is calm, don’t get attached to the calm state.
As with everything in life, our mental states change constantly – in every moment they bring us something new.
Best wishes in your practice.

It’s wonderful that if you can have little or no thought during meditation. In the Falun Gong meditation practice, the more empty one’s mind is, the higher level one can achieve. In the third section in the Ninth Talk in the Zhuan Falun Lecture on the web, you can read up about thoughts in meditation. In the same book, you can also review the pros and cons about mixing meditation practices in the third section in the Thrid Talk. There is also interesting discussion about Zen in the book.
Guided meditation demonstration video, meditation music, and books about Falun Gong are free to download from the URL listed below. If you need any help, contact a local practitioner in your area for free instructions. Good luck.
Falun Gong is a unique Buddhist School, found in 1992 by Master Li Hongzhi in China. About 100 million people practice in over 80 countries worldwide. Falun Gong is an ancient practice for the body, mind, and spirit based upon the universal principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Tolerance. Falun Gong consists of five sets of powerful exercises.
Falun Gong, Tibetans, other Buddhists, and Christians have been persecuted in China. The most offensive human right violation is the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners in China.
