Discussion of spiritual practices: awakening, meditation, and the freedom that cannot be lost or found. All perspectives are welcome; advaita, christian, buddhist, islam or even no perspective at all. Just pointing to that which is nearest and dearest.

the great accomplishment

The great accomplishment during meditation is to just sit; any other feat is a dream.

no hidden ball


There is nothing new nor anything you do not already have which needs to be gained. The feeling that you have not yet realized is the sole obstruction to realization. - Ramana Maharshi


Meditation is the search for what cannot be lost; Give up the search for some particular experience or understanding; there is no hidden ball.

making too much out of nothing


Sometimes I think we make up fanciful stories about meditation:  its purposes, the techniques, the benefits, and the postures.  Perhaps it is just the sitting in Silence that is the whole of it.  Just sitting, being quiet, and relaxing.

Perhaps it is as Eban Alexander reports in his book: "Proof of Heaven" : “You are loved and cherished, dearly, forever," “You have nothing to fear" and “There is nothing you can do wrong.”

peace on you,
bob
