    How can the mind contemplate darkness? The Bilble admonishes us to meditate only on the Word of God i.e. the Bible(see Joshua 1:8). Also, the apostle Paul puts this notion beautifully in Phillipians 4:8. In Psalm 119:105, we understand that God's word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our paths

    I am convinced that the counsellee finds the advice to meditate on 'nothingness' , 'boring' because that is not the way human beings were created to use their mental capacities.
