Day off this Bank Holiday Monday
How are you? I wanted to say I have been thinking of you although I haven’t written for a long time. I am wondering how you are – how you are with the stillness and what is happening inside you?
I have just done several hours of meditation following a long sleep, both of which I have not made time for recently due to stress. It feels so good to return…
Perhaps I will say a little about what I feel meditation is, as sometimes it seems to be a rather misunderstood term. My experience of meditation is that I come home as what I really truly am in a given moment, or in many apparent moments which seem to be strung together. When I sit to meditate, I often use a guided meditation from Adyashanti (for example, from ‘The Way of Liberating Insight’ online course I am doing), or I may chant the Names to Amma, or I may just sit down, close my eyes and be still. Whatever the practice, to me meditation is what I am – simply that. Meditation is what I am. In a sense, I could say it is the act of being what I am (although that isn’t quite it). And what can happen within meditation is the slicing through, the piercing, of a deep conditioned pattern in a way that completely and radically dissolves that pattern. It may return, wounded, and yet it never can completely return once that kind of insight has taken place. Please do ask me to elaborate on this if you are interested.
What is your experience of meditation? I would love to hear your experiences.
This Monday I am taking the day off. I will not therefore be able to offer the usual Half Price Deal. I suppose I don’t feel it would be ethical to work when I am in the business of facilitating healing and I can feel that my bodymind needs to heal. I am thinking of you and wishing you Love and Truth in whatever you are involved in,
