To meditate while working

To meditate while working is one of the three feet of the Agya (the whole of the three practices of the original-yoga). There is a technique to do it. It is obviously easier being watchmaker than sale representative but it is possible!


The nonaction is a very difficult concept to understand, even for those who practise it and believe to have understood. Nonaction is a usual concept for the Zen and on the path of Freedom, in the practice of its original-yoga it is represented by one of the three feet of the Agya (the whole of the three practices): Duty.

Nonaction is not to do nothing. Theoretically nonaction is doing while being released of the merits, of the results of one’s acts, in the detachment. In the practice of the original-yoga it is more practical than that: nonaction (or Duty) is to make while keeping a part of the own attention on the technique of Meditation known as “of-the-Holy-Name”. This technique of Meditation (one of the four revealed) can be practised formally, sitted or more slightly while acting.

An external glance will be unable to see that the person is meditating.

The Nonaction

“Everything's getting a lot better by the Nonaction's practice”

By reading this sentence of Lao-Tse we could believe that this Chinese Master recommended to do nothing, to stay there, at the best in Satori, the contemplation, in the worst case sleeping… but Nonaction it is not to do nothing.

What is the nonaction”? This by Lao-Tse and the Tao beloved concept [that is also present in the Bhagavad-Gîtâ], is not the equivalent of the passivity, the inertia nor the lazes. It is exactly the opposite which has to be seen here, i.e. inactivity of the passions and the material desires which are in contradiction with the natural law”. [Wikipedia].

At the same time as this nonaction, Lao-Tse recommends the activity in the movement, i.e. in the natural impulse proceeding of Tao:

“The men could really become men if they were let go
as go the floods to the sea, as the trees flower,
with the simple beauty of Tao.”

The path regards Lao-Tse as one of its Masters

To say Tao we say One and Ananda. The Christ said my Father and the Kingdom. To name the Nonaction we use the word Duty which is the active-Meditation. Others would have used karma-yoga and in the Cistercian monks (for example) work has a great importance if it is made by keeping the spirit in prayer.

The Duty is one of the three daily practices
which constitute the base of our Sadhàna,
the Agya, covering the day, of the waking up to the sleeping.

''The Duty is the nonaction, the karma yoga''

[Bhaktimàrga 2-3-2]

We gave a name to the Peace of the center of us: Holy-Name. Others use other names according to their culture and their language. It is possible to say Verb, also, or Te, the one of the Tao-Te-King or Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost, Satnam, etc

The Holy-Name is not a theory. We can live inside us when we know what it is, where to find it and how to do. It is the purpose of our practice.

Everyone, without exception, knows this Holy-Name, it is normal: it is inside everybody and without him we would not live. But you do not know what it looks like and it is the reason why we do not identify it as such when our Conscience, our mood makes that we feel it. We say then: satisfaction, wellness, Peace, calm, serenity, love, cool! It is, each time, the Holy-Name, this “inner-smile”.

The path is a way of life

The path is a way of life where we go to deepen our Conscience. To that end, there is the Duty, you know, this Nonaction which is not doing nothing ! The Duty consists in practising a technique of particular Meditation, while doing what we have to do normally. This technique of Meditation cannot be seen from outside and it doesn’t hinder us to act, quite to the contrary: it enables us to be intenter on doing our activities.

Thus, by the Duty, we keep a part of our Conscience
in the Holy-Name.
It is what Lao-Tse named nonaction.
The monks who work while praying have the same intention.
Thus we can meditate by doing the dishes !

''Continuing this Meditation in the actions
Helps to stabilize this Peace''

The soul remembers

The soul remembers, not the detail of its last lives but it keeps the trace of its original environment and aspires to go back there. You identify with the soul and you will have this aspiration. You identify with your concepts and you will dream of concepts.


the soul remembers its original environment. It is not the akashic records, and if the memory kept the “memory” of the bliss from where it comes from it is not a memory made of words and pictures but rather like a feeling that it misses something and the recognition, each time a peaceful happiness comes to it, that it has importance and it is like an impression of déjà vu.

It is often question of the lost paradise.
The Eden is a metaphor
whose origin goes back to the beginnings of the humanity,
when the homo sapiens left Africa,
in the Upper Paleolithic and arrived
in the arid country of Arabia and found there
a green valley irrigated by rivers,
in the current Yemen, at the edge of the ocean.
This place has been named Eden
well after, towards the Mesopotamie,
in memory of the old stories, to indicate the paradise.

But the Christians's lost paradise does exist. Jésus Christ named it the Kingdom. In India some say Satçitananda. It is your destination and your origin.

''The Christ said if the Kingdom is in the sky
The birds will precede you
If it is in the sea, the fishes will precede you
The Kingdom is inside you ''

[Bhaktimàrga 1-1-46]

At the moment of the incarnation the soul is bound to the ego, in order for it to be aware of itself and thus it has the free-will. Your soul remembers the Peace from where it comes and this memory gives you the irrepressible need, thirst to go back there.

The misunderstood suffering


As long as you do not identify the source of this thirst, that generates in you a suffering which is difficult to relieve. Here is the latent, chronic suffering, the frustration which pushes you to the unbridled consumption of material goods and pleasures in the hope, unceasingly disappointed, to relieve it. It is a waste of time and effort, because the pleasures and the possessions cannot fill this lack, this lack of the Love of which you have the memory and on which your mental don’t know which word to put.

The romantic love

In the West, the spirit invented the romanticism, the feelings, the courtly love. Educated “with the udder of these ideas” some, many, search the woman or the man of their life, as if another person could give a meaning to their existence! It is really showing a sickly modesty to imagine that they were born to love a person and to be loved by her/him, that without someone else they are incomplete! This strange idea blind them and they go from disappointments in disappointments, of sufferings in sufferings letting their spirits turn sour over the spent years.

Greatly reduced
Through separations, painful divorces, nervous breakdowns, from which they recover only after many years, they are greatly reduced, scraggy, no longer believing in anything, resentful at the bottom of their dens. However the Love is there, inside us and we can taste it at will.


If, tasting this inner love, it comes you the desire for sharing it with somebody and it turns out that the life with this somebody adds, to the harmony, a tenderness made of comprehension and share, then so much better!

The love for somebody can be full of joy
of complicity and pleasure.
It is not forbidden to have pleasure, joy
and enjoying to live in this world.
It is simply a pity to lose yourself in the mistake
and to leave time to slip by in the doubt and the pain.

''But let your first care be for his kingdom and his righteousness;
and all these other things will be given to you in addition''.

[Matthieu 6:33]

Start from a good starting point
You can do everything: studying, working, writing, playing music, working out, living in couple, founding a family, buying a house, driving sport cars, doing politics etc. But you must start from a good starting point, in full Conscience. The practice of the path is the good point where to stand to exist and to do all what you owe, you want, and you can while remaining in the Peace of the inside. Here and now is the good place and the good moment.

''The Observance of Agya leads to the Unit ''
