Aimlessness or uncommittedness or wishlessness (Sanskritapraṇihita अप्रणिहित) is a form of concentration in some schools of Buddhist meditation. The concept is particularly associated with the teachings of Thích Nhất Hạnh, who counts aimlessness as the third form of concentration or “Third Door of Liberation”. The term apraṇihita literally means ‘to place nothing in front’ and is used to designate someone who has no aims for the future and no desire for the objects of perception.
My unease dissipated. I realized that I had a path. But I’m happy right where I am. I don’t want to be anywhere else. There’s really nothing more I want. Being without a goal is very liberating. Once again, I’m brought back to my teacher’s first lesson to me, “Just be.”
