Gap Between Thoughts and Awareness: Mystery of It Revealed!

gap between thoughts

We all experience gap between thoughts and awareness.

The person who does meditation can have a deep experience of it.

Our spiritual teachers say that gap between thoughts is a way to go to your

real Existence.

What is this real existence? It is a mystery for spiritual teachers. And they

want to live this mystery.

They say that gap between thoughts is awareness and awareness is you.

So:

You are not this body and mind. You are just an awareness beyond this body and mind. You are immortal.

But:

What actually this gap is? Awareness is another big topic to discuss about in another post.

Let’s discuss what actually this gap is?

Who Sees the Thoughts?

who sees the gap

First of all, who sees the thoughts I mean who is the watcher? To see the thoughts two mechanism will work.

One is listener and other is seer. Seer will see the images of the thoughts and listener will listen to the thoughts. So here duality is present.

 And it is important to note that mind creates this duality. Mind creates watcher.

First a thought comes to mind that there must be a watcher. It comes from outside. A guru instigates this thought inside you.

Now to get that watcher, guru suggests some technique. This technique starts with a spark of a thought that comes from outside I mean from that guru.

Now you do the practice suggested by that guru. You do the same as described by your spiritual guru. Map is already there.

You are walking on that map. It starts from a thought and how it will end into something else?

 Actually, there is no listener to listen to the thoughts. Only listening is there.

 If you feel that someone is listening inside, then it is the touch sense by which there is feeling of this body through which you are feeling the listening.

If body is there by mean of touch sense, all senses work properly otherwise there is no feeling of functioning of the senses.

In sleep, there is no feeling of body so there is no feeling of functioning of senses.

All these mechanisms like listening, seeing, smelling or touching are present with the presence of functioning of senses. It is somewhat difficult to understand but it is not impossible.

 These great spiritual gurus believe that someone is listening or watching inside however there is no listener or watcher. Only listening or seeing or smelling is there.

 Who is Creating Gaps between Thoughts?

gap between thoughts

Thought is creating gap between thoughts. First, there is a thought that there is gap between thoughts. After it, someone tries to see that gap.

And what is this gap? It is a silent thought in your running memory. It is a thought but silent. It is not producing any sound.

Who is watching this gap? Again thought is watching the silent thought in the form of gap. Actually, mind divides itself into many parts.

Question is that this whole gap and watching mechanism starts from a thought and how it could end into thoughtless state? It is simple to understand that heart cannot become liver. Brain cannot become lungs.

Then What Actually Occurs during the Gap Between Thoughts?

gap between thoughts

 It seems difficult to understand.

 All senses work independently. When you want to watch the thoughts then who is watching? Only seeing mechanism is there.

 How this seeing mechanism is working we cannot know at that time. Only seeing is there.

 Similarly, when you want to listen to an outer sound or your thoughts then who is listening? Only listening mechanism is there and how this listening mechanism is working we cannot know at that moment. Only listening is there.

When you feel that there is no thought inside then at that moment, touching mechanism is operating. With this you can feel your body however not your whole body.

In my case, I feel my body with my closed eyes only on some points where touching is intense otherwise there is no feeling of this body at all.

 In silent thought process, you see darkness or light in front of your eyes and you feel this physical body at certain intense touching points. This comes as gap between thoughts.

So thoughts do not stop but there is shift of senses. When you feel that there is gap between thoughts actually at that time, touch sense comes into operation with its full intensity. Seeing sense too comes into operation.

With touch sense you can feel the presence of your body and with seeing sense you can see the darkness or light in front of your eyes. This darkness is nothing but a diminished light. So your attention shifts from thoughts to darkness or light or some intense touching points of your body.

So:

 There is only shifting of senses.

As senses are working independently so you feel that there is gap between thoughts. Thoughts are running spontaneously inside you without a pause and only a shift in senses happens there.

 At that moment, listening mechanism shifts to touching mechanism and you are only feeling the presence of your body. Now as listening mechanism is not working so you are not listening to your thoughts however thoughts are there to listen to.

 For example, you only see darkness in front of your eyes. Now in this process, seeing mechanism shifts from images of thoughts to darkness in front of your eyes.

It happens because at that moment, touching mechanism is intense and you are feeling the presence of your eyes. As you are awake, so with it you are seeing darkness in front of your eyes.

It doesn’t mean that images of thoughts stop. They are running spontaneously however the shifting of senses changes the whole scenario.

In reality, there is no gap between thoughts or there is no gap between images of thoughts. Only shifting of senses occurs and feels like gap.

 For example, dreams are running continuously inside your head, however in day time all senses remain busy in daily chores so there are no dreams to watch.

It is interesting to note that if you get a nap at day time, immediately dreams are there. Dreams are waiting for your nap or sleep. So dreams are always there like stars in the sky.

 Stars in the sky are always there in day broad light, however in day time we cannot see them in the presence of sunlight. In night when sunlight disappears, stars are there.

It doesn’t mean that stars had gone somewhere else in day time and now in night they had come back. They were there all the time, only the presence of sunlight makes them unavailable to us.

Similarly, dreams are there, only the day chores of senses or you can say the presence of conscious mind makes them unavailable to us.

Similarly, thoughts or images of thoughts are always there but shifting of senses makes them disappear for us.

And it is interesting to note that when someone goes into thoughtless state, a thought is always present to know what has happened at that moment and will be ready to speak about that moment in the future.

So a thought is there watching all this process and when you get up from that posture of thoughtless state and will indulge into some other daily chores of life, later this thought will explain what was happening at that thoughtless moment. So:

 You cannot kill the thought.

 Killing of thought means you are finish. And thought or your mind never wants to be finish.

Bottom line:

 It is only a dodge game of your mind to dodge itself and it is very interesting and charming.

Conclusion:

Actually thoughts have no gaps at all. It works like pumping of our heart. Our heart pumps blood continuously.

One stoppage in that continuity, all will finish. Similarly, one stoppage in thought process, all will finish.

And it is not our hand to stop thoughts similarly as it is not our hand to stop our heart. How can we stop our heart?

It is all natural process. We cannot interfere into it.

It does not mean that we should not do meditation. We should do meditation if we want. But we cannot touch thoughts at all. We can play with thoughts as what we are. We are thoughts.

What is in our hand? We have only one thing to do and that is to shift our awareness to something else.

Then:

 What is this gap between thoughts that our spiritual teachers have been describing for centuries?

It is only a shift of awareness from thoughts to something else like shift of attention to our breathing. That is all.

I have said enough. It is your time to say something about it. Please leave your intelligent comment in comment box.
