The king called his favourite bell-maker and ordered for a special bell to be made; of a kind the world would not have seen before.
The bell maker asked for 6 months to complete the project . The king was astonished. He wanted it fast.
The bell maker explained that he needed 4 months to allow his mind to slip into silence. Then , he had to spend a month in choosing the right tree stump for the bell.
After that, he said, the bell would merely flow out of him.......
A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness inner energies wake up and work miracles without effort on your part.
The witnessing awareness to me is the state of meditation.
