“Sitting in meditation allows the body and mind to settle into stillness. In that stillness we become the openness that allows all of life in, including the parts we’ve never wanted to face. As much as we would like to have pleasing and special experiences, the path of meditation is about being ever awake – to whatever we feel, special or not. Meditation is not about achieving nice states of mind while sitting on a cushion. The essence of meditation is to simply be here, bringing full awareness to just this moment. When stillness yields to the incessant outpouring of our overactive brain – we come back again and again to what is, to awareness of the breath, the body, the environment.”
~ Ezra Bayda
Give yourself time to be. The pathway to love is lit from within and in order to access that guiding wisdom, stillness is required.
