"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as concentration, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps unification is a better rendition, as samadhi means to bring together. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It's a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." -

All,

nice discussion. Now, why not experiencing it, instead of only talking 'bout it all the time...

(I know, it's easier said then done.)

The cessation here mean the cessation of the spheres of contact.
