can you remain "thoughtless " at least for a second?

I tried this for many times in my life. The very moment that i wake up, in the morn.. even before i could open my eyes the first thought of the day conquers me.. I tried many means on several occasions to remain thoughtless at least for a second..Mmmmmmmm.. no result.. Have you ever tried this one before? Cheers Saivenkat.

Yes, I have experienced this, and it felt GREAT! Being thoughtless doesn't mean being "blank" in a negative sense. It simply means that no crazy thoughts are rushing through your head; nopes, not even one thought. It simply means that you are highly aware. Your mind is sharp and alert; devoid of negativity. It is your strongest moment, a moment at which "God is here." Unfortunately, I have been blessed with this bliss only for a few precious seconds and then the crazy thoughts get back. I think I have to practice more, but this damn modern world with its noise and complexity doesn't permit too many spiritual exercises. Cheers and happy mylotting

Hi saivenkaat802003! I have tried that too many times before especially when I am trying to relax but to no avail. I have just noticed in myself that whenever i try it, the more thoughts come to my mind. The harder I try, the harder the thoughts forced themselves in my consciousness. haha..Stubborn thoughts! Take care and God Bless!

It's an integral part in meditation and is possible with practise. I have been doing it for sometime now with little bit of success . The max I ve reached is probably a minute. Difficult to judge time becuase there is nothing in your mind then. Try it when your relaxed and at night before you go to sleep.
