Here and in many other places we also see that liberation is not an intellectual exercise, as in Buddhism, but a mystic-metaphysical event, typical of the Upanishads. Insight in many passages is not about cognition, but instead reached in a deep meditative trance. Meditation allows the subject to penetrate darkness’ and see the ultimate’. This is of course in direct conflict with the cognitive liberation notion of Buddhist mindfulness we find in other passages.
We see an example of this significant Brahmin mystic merging of meditation and contemplation:
One may have a higher concentration than this. By pressing the tip of his tongue against the palate, by restraining voice, mind, and breath, one sees Brahma through contemplation (tarka). VI.20
In fact, it is almost like praying for bad things Yoga poses namaste to happen. For those things that keep coming back to you through memory or worry: Yoga poses namaste The time is now. There is an expression that says: Wherever you go, there you are. What this says to me is that there is no external escaping the stuff in our minds. Peace of mind can only come from practicing the quieting of the mind and observing yourself in each moment. Doing is oftentimes running from your self and preoccupying your mind and body with distractions from the self. Our goal should be to attain a sort of effortless effort through our actions that will bring us back to our most honorable selves. We need work only to provide for our families and ourselves.
