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.

on meditation practice




On meditation practice: stop all the searching; meditation is not a process; just be!

Out beyond the world of ideas of wrong doing and right doing, there is a field.  I will meet you there. 
Rumi

The only way to meet Rumi in that field is to realize that you never left the field.

what is obvious



Meditation is the search for the obvious. Unfortunately, we are taught to search high and low via books, gurus, and practices. Searching teaches only one lesson:  search harder and with more persistence.

Give up the search and see what has always been, is here right now, and will always be … 

(Quran 2:15) To GOD belongs the east and the west; wherever you go there will be the presence of GOD. GOD is Omnipresent, Omniscient.

peace upon you,

wisdom is release.



Is it not too much food that causes all manner of problems?
Is is not too many expectations that ruin relationships? 
Is it not too many ideas of how things ought to be that cause suffering?
is it not too many rules that ruin the fun in a game?
Is it not too many constraints that destroy creativity?

Meditation is the practice of release!

Release, release, release, release, release, and then release releasing.

Peace on you,
bob
