So many times when we start a meditation practice, we imagine that in 3 seconds or less we will have achieved our goals. Peace of mind. And it will last for ever.
Peace of mind is an evolutionary state of being. It is a mythic journey that begins in silence and is enriched by calm and tranquility. I tell my students and actually anyone who will listen, that the richness of being lies in the connection to a tranquil state of presence.
What does that mean? It means allowing the mind to quiet. But more than that. It means allowing the constant energy of life, the thoughts, the desires, the feelings to rise and be there – not buried. But also not all encompassing, so there is a space – a beautiful space in which we can observe the mind, observe the world and be both connected and not immersed.
This does not mean we close down, shut down, become cold. We simply enter that space of “ah, interesting” and observe, while we are in the act of observing, and are the subject through which all is observed. Don’t you love that? It must be my Pisces moon that loves the merge – but I do. It frees me. I hope it frees you.
So, to help you move towards that evolution here is a link to this months’ meditation on tranquility and insight. Enjoy. Pass it on. Share it freely. Questions? Ask away….
