Well, what is meditation then? When your past thought has ceased and your future thought has not yet arisen and you are free from conceptual reckoning in the present moment, then your genuine and natural awareness, the union of being empty and cognizant dawns as the state of mind, which is like space – that itself is dzogchen transcending concepts, the cutting through of primordial purity, the open and naked exhaustion of phenomena.
