..to that spacious awareness that lies behind the form
the nirvana that is other side of the balance of (sansara?), so what way you want to (present ?) this is determined by your karmic p(..)
for example some people are very quiet and reflective, and for them the path may well be the path of s(..) meditation..

..you stay quiet in the center..
and when the mind gets really concentrated, it penetrates, and you penetrated into realm where you're not separated from anything. that is a strategy, the end point is not to leave you being a meditator, but to be free.
and it's important that you recognize, even if you embrace this technique, every technique is a trap. every single one. but the tricky ting about (..) practices is that you have to be trapped by them in order for them to work.
and when (bhakti) yoga gets really working, you are so intimate with the beloved, that you're at the edge of where the foreplay ends and the (merging?) occurs
..i can feel the merging, i can feel things happen inside of me..
