Why do modern minded people meditate?
The motivation to meditate or take up the practice is not necessarily about convincing arguments, but about recognizing the need as such within oneself – analog to recognizing the need to drink by experiencing thirst. This already existing need is not readily apparent though, unless one accidentally experiences the meditation state, also called fourth state of consciousness, emptiness, silence, peace of mind, or witnessing consciousness. But this inquiry does not leave the discovery of the motivation of meditation up to chance: Silent Fascination is about learning to recognize the motivation and need of meditation within oneself; it explores many of it’s aspects, the mind’s inclination to resolve the Duality-Paradox of awareness and consciousness, and also provides a technique to elicit the meditation state – the 3-Point Breathing Meditation.
Dan Janssen (German) has been meditating for over 25 years. He is an engineer in the field of medical physics
