About meditation

What is it you do when you meditate?
You are meeting yourself

The moment you start to listen without knowing what it is you are listening to,
opening your ears to that flowing, vibrant aliveness
you will meet yourself

Breathe into the pain

By Jeff Foster (

Friend, you've tried absolutely everything except the obvious:
Doing absolutely nothing at all.
Stay with the thing you call "suffering". Stay with the grief, the sorrow, the fear, the longing, the boredom. Take away the second-hand words and directly feel the raw, first-hand energy in the body, in the belly, the chest, the throat, as it vibrates, tingles, moves, expresses fully.
