How to enter a state of stillness?

You need to transform the attendant in your mind who is constantly searching and attending to guests into the observing host that is unmoved and aware.

Cease searching.
Cease attending.

The few common methods of transforming the attendant into the observer:
1) breath regulation
2) ‘everything is filthy’ imposition
3) compassionate surrender
4) impermanence appreciation
5) mantra chanting

When the mind is still, the methods need not be used anymore.
Contemplation can begin.

Two useful questions to contemplate upon:
– what is the attendant searching for?
– what does the attendant attend to?
