A human being can only experience godliness. Through that experience the feeling comes to our heart-mind, and it defines it as God. So no-one has ever seen God, as Noun, is my own opinion, what is experienced is Godliness.
Whenever a person tries to learn Meditation, actually the yearning behind learning or practicing to attain a state of no-mind is one’s love towards God.
God is always in present, everywhere and eternal so any effort to bring your a no-mind state is actually your urge to experience Godliness as a lover urges to see the other. This urge ultimately leads to experience the present moment where God is always waiting for us.
This is like looking towards the Sun and immediately the shadow, ie Ego, disappears. We keep running in material life to enhance our ego through education, position of power or wealth, while it is just a futile attempt.
Sufi mystics and Jews believed that returning (here turning towards Sun or practicing meditation) to God is ultimate of human life.
How much one aspires to know himself of God is one’s love towards God. What you attain is moments in present ie Godliness and it brings relaxation to mind and body because you have touched the source of ultimate energy and your level was so low that within moments a lot of energy(data) is transferred.
Being a human one need not have to remain in present moment for full day but just two minutes is sufficient to live as a flower and God will accept it as a garland.
Practice of meditation as your love towards God find its culmination at the time of death. An enlightened person becomes happy after realising that it is time to leave the body. Now the Godliness he/she has attained and living through body is going to get dissolved in God. It will become moments of togetherness first time but forever too.
Two lovers are going to live together for eternity and the mystic awaits the first glimpse eagerly. This is what is called as true Love.
All previous Love had a fraction of it too, that is why lovers becomes ecstatic. Here it is full 100%.
