theory is that the word comes from the name of the famous 8th-century Islamic alchemist Jābir ibn Hayyān, whose name was Latinized as “Geber”, thus the term “gibberish” arose as a reference to the incomprehensible technical jargon often used by Jabir and other alchemists who followed.
Most people think that meditation is something that needs to done or practiced. Actually, meditation involves doing nothing and resting peacefully. Most of us are busy day and night running after material objects. Not many people devote their time to discovering their true inner self.
Contentment is Here
One need not renounce work and family and retire to the mountain caves to get inner peace. Contentment can be obtained where you are, as it is present in your heart. Meditation is often considered difficult, especially techniques involving concentration. In this article, we present an easy and joyful meditation technique called Gibberish.
Origin of Gibberish Meditation
This technique was evolved by a Christian mystic named Gabar. He had a unique way of answering people’s queries about enlightenment. Gabar would simply make nonsensical sounds. Initially, people wrote him off as crazy. But eventually, Gabar ended up with many followers.
Gabar would just speak nonsense. He uttered endless sounds that were not inter-connected at all. There were no periods, commas or sentence structure. Gabar enjoyed himself immensely, laughing all the while. Slowly, his followers started to understand the method behind the madness. As they listened to Gabar’s gibberish, their minds started to become silent. The mystic made his followers reach deep into their inner self, where they could find all the answers.
The Monkey Mind
The human mind has been rightly called the monkey mind. It keeps on chattering endlessly during our waking hours, and in sleep too, in the form of dreams. We need to realize how neurotic our mind is. It can become our worst enemy if we become its slave and try fulfill every whim and fancy. So, it is important to still the mind and control the constant mental chatter.
How to Practice Gibberish Meditation
You can practice this technique alone or with others. Just look at the sky or a natural object for a few minutes. Now, start singing and forget everything. Do not sing meaningful songs. Simply pour out all the gibberish in your mind. You can continue for about twenty minutes.
Benefits of Gibberish Meditation
Gibberish gets rid of our mind’s accumulated craziness. The mind needs words to think. Don’t suppress your thoughts, but cast them out using gibberish. As your mind unburdens, it will become less heavy and more clear. After the twenty minutes of gibberish meditation, quietly lie down and be silent. The mind’s chatter would have reduced and you can experience deep inner silence. So, use gibberish and release all your emotional and mental pressures.
