Why Meditate? - 7nov22
Why meditate? Ask a biologist (they’ll tell you) we’re subjected to stressors: circumstantial, physical, interpersonal, and mental. The Buddha explained how our stress is exacerbated by the tyranny of hating, craving, and clinging.
Each inhalations’ access to the sympathetic nervous system drives our mindfulness, that we might notice the mental poisons of aversion, avarice, and attachment. Similarly, each exhalation’s access to the parasympathetic nervous system drives meditation’s physical relaxation that ripens in the mental release of our resistance to the outer and the inner. Grab your metaphoric light saber and slice through the tyranny of your mental poisons by meditating like a Jedi.
