sitting still is the hardest thing you can attempt to do, every fiber of you body and muscles and joints was designed to 'move' not 'be still'
your mind is responsible for the 'moving' the body does, using the mind to make the body 'still' in effect tells the mind too, to be 'still'
but you will rebel, protest ... there are things to do, games to play, places to be, people to see, money to earn or to spend ....
your mind wants to move, wants you to move and will never be 'silent' you can only make it 'meaningless'
Are you aware of just how much of the things in your mind actually 'exists' or even 'still exists' ?
Thoughts care little of either or anything in fact, the mind keeps going constantly but never ever going anywhere, and thoughts are its tracks.
It is how the mind is aware of itself and you, by that mirror you are aware of yourself.
If the mind is silent then the mind is terrified of being blinded to this mirroring, 'you' still exist, your 'mind' still exist, but by existing, not by mirroring ... the silent mind.
You cannot be conscious of 'nothing' because it is the consciousness that makes this 'nothing' possible.
