Unthinking Concentration

Unthinking concentration is attention that no longer has any one object in mind.  It is like looking through water while submerged and absorbing everything into sight without considering any one object, but effortlessly considering (though with no agitation) the whole or perceiving the clarity of the water itself without focusing on any one object.  But this isn't a blank stare, because a blank stare is simply a loss of focus after focusing on one object.  I think this is what the Japanese mean by no-mind.
