Fix the mind on external space, which is eternal, supportless, void, all pervasive and silent. By doing this, one will completely enter non-space.Verse 128, Vigyan Bhairava Tantra
Space has several qualities similar to God. Space, like God is eternal, supportless (requires no support or condition to exist), void, all pervasive and silent. In the previous verse, one had to meditate on God who is supportless, all pervasive, eternal , and infinite. In this verse, we meditate on space, which has the same qualities. Instead of space, one can also use the word “air”. Practice this as a sitting meditation, with eyes closed. Focus your attention on external space or air. Feel yourself becoming one with this space. Feel that you are also eternal , supportless, void, all pervasive and silent. This meditation helps to break our identification with our body. Our body is a tool or vehicle we use to experience life, and our true nature. We are not our body. This is a point this text makes repeatedly. Our true nature is eternal, infinite and supportless.
By practicing this meditation, we stop identifying with our body, and instead start remembering our true nature – we become eternal, infinite and supportless. When you deeply understand that you are not your body, you lose all fear. Then you realize that all life is eternal. You never die, you only change form. Sometimes we feel fear, when our family, our nation, or our religion is threatened from outside. This fear goes away when we realize that we are eternal. Take the example of a pot or jar. A pot or jar may break, but the air inside it never gets destroyed. Similarly, our body may get destroyed, but our True Self within the body, never gets destroyed.
