I a world where we are constantly bombarded with all sorts of information, media, commercials, plus our own internal noise – we could do with some “not doing anything”. Luckily every moment offers us the opportunity to do just that – we just need to take it.
What’s even better is that by “not doing anything” and meditating, we also allow ourselves to notice the absence (or reduction) of the “millions of obsessions and fixations” that daily occupy us.
By being increasingly aware of this we can (over time) allow them less influence over us. And further choose to let them go so we can be more present in the moment.
I feel like the journey of meditation repeatedly reveals both new benefits of meditation, and new ways to improve myself.
What have you found to be the best thing about meditation?
Or what do you hope that it will do for you?
“Meditation is one of the rare occasions when we’re not doing anything. Otherwise, we’re always doing something, we’re always thinking something, we’re always occupied. We get lost in millions of obsessions and fixations. But by meditating – by not doing anything – all these fixations are revealed and our obsessions will naturally undo themselves like a snake uncoiling itself.”
– Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
