Is not the goal of meditation to have “peace of mind”?
For most of us the mind is anything but peaceful. Some even call it a ‘bad-neighborhood’ - full of negative self judgement, unattained goals, and all manner of nasty ideas about others. It need not be that way!
Meditation is like decluttering - simply discarding that which interferes with a clean room. Decluttering is easy if we don’t attach significance to the objects in the room. So it is with meditation.
What are the “objects in the room” during meditation. Clearly they are, thoughts, feelings, and body sensations. When we discard these, we end up with a empty ‘room’ - an empty and peaceful mind.
So easy … simply never take anything that arises in the mind as significant or valuable and you will see that the mind was always undisturbed - peaceful - like an empty room - just full of peace.
peace on you,
