Seeing life as a movie – Meditation technique

Let the attention be at a place where you are seeing some past happening and even your form, having lost its present characteristics, is transformed.

(112 Meditation techniques, Shiva Sutras)

This technique helps us go beyond our unconscious identifications with our actions in the past, thoughts about them in the present and ultimately transforms us to see beyond our limited self. Past happening of when you was a child, growing up, adulthood can be seen like a film happening in the background of the mind. Be a witness to the past and its identifications with emotions of joy, happiness, sadness, anger etc. within you.

Let the past happening play like a film within you, releasing all past feelings and identifications with your past projected self. Let all thoughts and emotions be witnessed without being identified with them. If you become identified with thoughts and emotions once you become aware return to just watching them like a film! Dont judge your thought or emotions, situations, people or circumstances. Just witness everything objectively, like a story. Spending time to see our past experiences and future expectations objectively we cleanse all identifications with past actions and emotions and allow the space for us to come to realize ourselves in this present moment.

See the you who has no personal story! Laugh at the drama of so called life, what an engaging, dramatized and illusory story the mind creates! Now living fully in the moment,float in the river of life!

Tips; many times in this technique you may get caught in your personal story and lose the ability to witness your thoughts and emotions objectively. Whenever you become aware of this return to just witness. A good meditation technique to improve concentration and the ability to witness includes  awareness techniques.

  1. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks

  2. I as well as my pals came checking the great helpful hints on the blog while before long developed an awful feeling I never thanked the website owner for those secrets. All the women ended up so joyful to study all of them and now have pretty much been using them. I appreciate you for simply being well thoughtful and for opting for this kind of very good tips most people are really eager to learn about. My very own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to earlier.

    1. Hi, my intention is to express this inner clarity and creative energy through these writings, through meditation and throughout life. We can all share something, whatever it may be, to inspire others. We just have to rise up with courage to allow our inner self to be heard and express itself! Enjoy.
