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.

For some "awakening hints" take a peek at: www.robertflegal.com

meditation is the search for what to give up

Meditation is the search for what to give up.  Empty yourself utterly and you will come to see things as they are, not how you think they ought to be.

So ... Sit in silence and as thoughts, feelings, and body sensations arise, notice them (not pushing them away or grabbing on to them) and drop them like when one releases a rock in ones hand.  The rock falls of it's own weight when the hand is opened.

Practice this daily and you will come to see your original nature ... what freedom!

Peace on you,
