while meditating i wanted to note what thought comes in mind and i am surprised to note that no thought comes. I was mindful to note thought but nothing arises. What state is this?

Please be patient. Sometimes it takes a few days for someone to be able to answer.

It's not a state. It's just the thought that no thought is arising. You should note this as thinking. If you like it note it as liking.

In our practice we don't look for some state or have a goal of being in some state. Our only job is to note experiences as they are. To see them clearly. We're not trying to gain any special understanding or move through any stages. Just clearly seeing experiences.

You are supposed to note the rising and falling of the abdomen. You note the thoughts only if they come up. If you are anticipating thoughts, note that anticipation.
