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.

 Have you noticed that, when you think about yourself and your problems, you feel worse. This is especially true when we drop into rumination over some pressing matter. 

There are so many forms of meditation that are relaxing, like breath-focus or mantra-type meditations. These meditations do work but, they do not have long-lasting effects. 

To make any deep change in our lives, we must change our core beliefs

 "In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's there are few." - Shunryu Suzuki

But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, *said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid any longer, only believe.” -Mark 5:36

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. - Matthew 18:3

Let go … let God … the direct path to the peace within

Is it not the case that if we think about ourselves a lot we become anxious?

Meditation is the practice of forgetting self.  

What to think about? For it is in the remembrance of God that hearts find peace.  Try this:

He is God: the Creator, the Initiator, the Designer. To Him belong the Beautiful Names. Glorifying Him is what is in the heavens and the earth. He is the Dignified, the Wise

The reason that most meditation practices do not produce the desired results is because they are doing it backwards - the seeker is seeking himself to fix the problem that the seeker has created. 


Peace on you

I love this quote by Milarepa ... The only question is: "Who is the thrower"?

 Find out and stand free.

In our meditation practice we are "letting go" - detaching if you will. 
With much practice we come to see that there is nothing to let go of as we are just joining reality.
Wisdom is seeing this.

We seek and seek and seek and do not find real Peace.

In our meditation practice we stop the seeking and just notice what is so in the present moment.  To notice what is so inside of us is the first step in any meditation practice.

Notice; let it go; feel the peace.  This is the process.   

So simple ... no need to complicate our practice. 

Peace on you.
