In the Shiva Swarodaya, an ancient Tantric text on the breath, prana and its flow, it is noted that the meditative state occurs naturally at the time of sunrise and sunset. Perhaps this is not surprising when you think of how we relate to those times of the day, when we marvel at life's unfolding, feeling very much part of its occurrence. As we all have seen such sights, this is something that can be easily observed and understood and can give much insight into what the state of meditation is. In that absorption all is profound, all is sacred, precious. Ideas of duality dissolve, there is no feeling of what is superior, inferior, right, wrong, natural, unnatural, there is only this moment happening. In that full allowing of the moment we become completely relaxed, deeply connected to all of life.
