Stay in the present

Don't expect anything.

I am a breathaholic

Or rather an aeraholic. Breathing is pleasurable. Watching the breath should be.

We begin and we continue

Relationships are messy.

They are complicated.

WOW

PIERSON: In the meantime, you and I and others like us. . . where are we to live when the Martians own the earth?

-- from the movie script.

Kindness is not about being nice and pleasant.

Breathing. Rising and falling.

Just sit

There's no magic posture.

Restlessness

"Desire is the memory of pleasure and fear is the memory of pain. Both make the mind restless. Moments of pleasure are merely gaps in the stream of pain. How can the mind be happy?"

Life is full of attachments

I am trying to simplify life. Or myself.

The self is seeking security

Meditation is observation

It is understanding the meditator, which is oneself.

Practice

"We know the outer world of sensations and actions, but of our inner world of thoughts and feelings we know very little. The primary purpose of meditation is to become conscious of, and familiar with, our inner life. The ultimate purpose is to reach the source of life and consciousness.

Incidentally practice of meditation affects deeply our character. We are slaves to what we do not know; of what we know we are masters. Whatever vice or weakness in ourselves we discover and understand its causes and its workings, we over­come it by the very knowing; the unconscious dissolves when brought into the conscious. The dissolution of the unconscious releases energy; the mind feels adequate and becomes quiet."


-- N. Maharaj

The idea is not to torment ourselves
