Once again, I’m back to the notion that awakening is not about figuring out the right meaning of dharma, or the right meditative state of mind. There are no right answers, or even right questions. There’s just what lies beyond the known, the unknown. Enlightenment is a lot of ‘nothing’. Every once in a while, you get flashes of insight (poof!) and then it’s a lot of nothing for a long time. You get used to the nothingness of it.

to me it's about about meditating what the mind is trying to figure out, which in turn makes the mind stop figuring stuff out, which pacifies the mind, which will eventually lead to enlightenment.
