Focus your mind on the tongue

     Focus your mind on different centers and the results will be different. Focus in the middle of the tongue, with mouth slightly open – as if you are going to speak. Not closed, but slightly open as if you are going to speak; not like when you are speaking. Then keep the mind in the middle of the tongue. You will have a very strange feeling, because the tongue has a center just in the middle which controls your thoughts. If you suddenly become aware and you focus on that, your thoughts will stop. Focus as if your whole mind has come to the tongue – just in the middle.

     Or, as breath comes silently in, feel the sound “HH”: your thinking will stop, you will feel a solidity within – as if you have become solid. When thoughts are not there you become immovable; thoughts are the inner movement. And when thoughts are not there and you have become immovable, you have become part of the eternal, which only appears to move but which is immovable, which remains unmoved. In thoughtlessness you become part of the eternal, the unmoved. With thought you are part of the movement, because nature is movement. The world is movement, that is why we have called it the SANSAR, the wheel – it is moving and moving and moving. The world is movement and the hidden, the ultimate, is unmoved, unmoving, immovable.

     Open your mouth slightly, as if you are going to speak. Then inhale, and be aware of the sound, which is created by inhaling. It is just ”HH” – whether you are exhaling or inhaling. You are not to make the sound, you are just to feel the incoming breath on your tongue. It is very silent. You will feel ”HH.” It will be very silent, very slightly audible. You have to be very alert to be aware of it. But do not try to create it. If you create it, you have missed the point. Your created sound will be of no help, it is the natural sound that happens when you inhale or exhale.   But the technique says while inhaling, not exhaling – because while exhaling you will go out, and with the sound YOU will go out, while the effort is to go in. So while inhaling, hear the sound ”HH.”Go on inhaling and go on feeling the sound ”HH.”

     You will feel that the sound is not being created only at the tongue, it is being created in the throat also, then you will start hearing it in the heart. And when it reaches the heart, you have gone beyond mind.
