Restlessness, Stress, and Meditation - 8dec22

Meditation that wrestles with mental stress and physical restlessness is NOT meditation,

but rather its analog. Like those pale, red, unnaturally “perfect” tomatoes at the supermarket that although look beautiful are rather tasteless.

When we sit cross legged upon the floor, hands in lap, spine erect and STRIVE to select our physical or mental experience; that is NOT meditation but rather concentration. It is an example of our controlling tendencies masquerading as surrender; like a bossy BDSM “submissive.”

Our central nervous system has evolved to notice as we inhale and relax as we exhale. Make the most of that, and you too could 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

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
