Heartbreak, Release, and Meditation
In the 1996 film “Kama Sutra: a Tale of Love” the sculptor is executed by having a royal elephant step on his chest; which is pretty much how a romantic break-up feels.
In the second noble truth the Buddha inferred that striving to shove away painful emotions intensifies their stress. Instead of rigidly concentrating upon your breath, merely coordinate perception and release with breath’s natural cycles.
Silently reciting “Feeling this…” during each inhalation helps us to effortlessly notice heart-break. Mentally reciting “relaxing!” during each exhalation helps us to physically relax and mentally release our resistance to the pain of the present moment.
Meditation’s goal is not to pick and choose what we feel, but rather to master releasing our resistance to whatever we spontaneously notice; be it glorious or grotesque. Align your intention with your autonomic nervous system and you too could meditate like a Jedi.
