After being registered on this website for 7 years, I am asking a question regarding the basics of meditation (based on the type of stupid person I am), so the question is that - What should be done while meditating? If the answer comes to be aware, then the next question is - do we need to be aware of what is happening - or - just aware? The difference between these two is that in order to do the first, we can not be exactly in the present moment - to explain, if we observed a sound arose and then ceased, we would be thinking about that phenomenon and not be in present moment because theoretically the present moment arises and ceases simultaneously, in a way that theoretically the present moment does not exist. If the answer to the second question is the second option to be just aware but not aware of anything from an analyzing perspective of our brain, then what difference is there between relaxing while listening to music (and not thinking about anything rather just listening to music) and doing meditation? Thanks.
By the way, Happy Diwali to everybody.
