Meditation, Sadness, and Processing - 26oct22
Photographs in Yoga Journal display models in the lotus position with blissful expressions on their beautiful faces. A promise is inferred that similar delights await us.
And yet our mindfulness (vulnerable, passive, visceral, and spontaneous) could run face first into the unyielding brick wall of sorrow and its accompanying memories, imaginings, and confabulations.
Due to one of evolution’s happy coincidences each exhalation accesses our parasympathetic nervous system supporting our physical relaxation and mental release. This is how we process the sorrow that could be excavated by our sympathetic nervous system during our inhalations; and also how we meditate like a Jedi!
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported
not by monasteries but by students

blogs, and class materials is supported
by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers
just like you.
