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.

Meditation is at, the root, a letting go - letting go of your ideas of how you think it ought to be and submitting to how the Divine created it and sustains it.

By letting go you come to see life in a completely new way - deeply interconnected, not belonging to you, and temporary. Hearts rejoice! 

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
Franz Kafka

They are the ones whose hearts rejoice in remembering God. Absolutely, by remembering God, the hearts rejoice.
(Quran 13:28)
