MEDITATION IS DEEP RELAXATION

Meditation Is Deep Relaxation
of body and mind.

This is what life is about;
the joy of living.

Through meditation, we notice how tense we are, worrying about the past or future – and it seems to be getting worse! That’s good, as it means we are noticing more. We are becoming lucid*.

This lucidity may be exciting, and so we tense up again. Relax, let go, drop. This is just about being aware – barely being aware – as in a dream. Everything comes to pass. There is always something that will pop up to grab our attention; if it needs immediate attention deal with it. If not, let it be. Having our attention grabbed, and then fixating, is mind-ego which loves to grasp hold and play with ‘everything’.

Our hopes and fears are created by ideas of the past and future, which do not exist in the spontaneous moment now. Only now exists – and in fact, this also cannot be found! We can only rest in the moment now. Resting in the moment now, there are no worries, no hopes, no fears. Whatever appears, we deal with it in a gentle, relaxed, unhurried way according to our capacity and the data that we have.

Modern life has speeded up so much that our system is overloaded Too much stimulation. Of course, we can push ourselves to the limit but that is obsession and blinds us to our reality. We do too much and panic to prove that we are alive. Ego-mind loves to grasp hold and play with ‘things’.

Stay lucid, stay sane, sustain the moment now.

*LUCIDITY: expressed clearly; easy to understand, having the ability to think clearly, especially in intervals between periods of confusion or insanity. Experience like a dreamer feeling awake, aware of dreaming, and able to control events consciously. Bright, luminous light.
