I have finally learned to meditate.
It took me years, but I now do it all the time.
The thing about meditation is that you don’t need a fancy place to do it and you must be patient.
Here is what Osho, one of my favorite philosophers, has to say about patience:
“The disciple who can wait will find all his questions answered at the right moment. But waiting is a great quality: it is deep patience, it is great trust. The mind cannot wait, it is always in a hurry. It knows nothing about patience; hence it goes on piling questions upon questions without getting the answer.”
It’s no good to meditate and ask 100 questions. You ask one at a time and then clear your mind while you patiently wait for your answer.
Enlightenment is the understanding that this is all, that this is perfect, that this is it. Enlightenment is not an achievement, it is an understanding that there is nothing to achieve, nowhere to go.
Mister Michael D’Alton sent this here video out to our class.
It reminds us of the things in life we like to forget while we’re busy being busy.
