Distinctive moments of mediation forms
In recent years, Zen masters have attested to Christians the attainment of enlightenment through meditation.
Christians view as well as Buddhists regard the possibility of meditation, Zen to integrate without losing their religious identity. Such integration is possible as long as the enlightenment through meditation on the one hand is the openness, emptiness and self-alienation that is - free of images and ideas - the extremes to which human assets "ecstatic" is capable, the other man in this act of having not once in a subtle way to have those opportunities is looking for that - Christian said - only God is to admit. In other words, the truly enlightened will present his enlightenment through meditation is not arbitrarily as a self-redemption. Of course, the threat to the now attained a situation can not be overlooked. It consists in the fact that in the open without a word, again and again the number of unsolicited words also penetrates and people who are on their way to Schweigemeditation, lack discernment be manipulated in various ways. Open is also the question of the authorities (the ratio of masters, teachers, teaching and theology) in the area of enlightenment through meditation. This question can not be left aside when it comes to the question of truth, authenticity and meaning of enlightenment through meditation and the authenticity of the healing journey.
Each meditation is the end-Comprehensive, Definitive, Not-to-grasps designed to face the only man over whom he may have not.
The question in regard to meditation intensifies when it comes to decide whether or not the person notifying the ultimate reality is personal and approachable, but - as far into the meditative forms of Zen Buddhism - not only unpronounceable, but also unresponsive remains nameless and impersonal. The Christian stands in the particular situation, that he with his faith in Jesus of Nazareth sees his own meditative experience as participation in God's experience of Jesus.
