Ruminations by Amber
A very wise teacher once said
there is no need to do anything when you meditate:
no need to stop anything, or
change anything, or
You just allow whatever is coming up to come up:
When I meditate, I give my mind the job of
noticing where awareness is hanging out:
the sound of a car,
the itch on my nose,
the irritation in my emotional-body...
And you know what?
When I'm not trying to be silent,
awareness naturally starts falling back into the
silence that was there all along:
The smile in the heart,
the space between thoughts, the peace that passes all mental understanding.
And that still, inward-turned awareness
is who I really am.
