When a student was finished MEDITATING with his teacher he asked the teacher; “what do you gain by MEDITATING?” The teacher replied, “I gain nothing, but I REJECT my anger, my fears, my stubbornness, my discomfort. We focus too much on what we can get. With MEDITATION we learn to REJECT fears, anger and burdens.” Doing as such we are growing, we are becoming, we are REJECTING. With MEDITATION we learn to avoid these negative features, but to become aware of them. We can lean into them and observe them without judgement. By REJECTING we wake up.
Buddha said; “The past no longer is, the future is not yet here; there is only one moment in which life is available, and that is the present moment. TO MEDITATE with mindful breathing is to bring body and mind back to the present moment so that you do not miss your appointment with life.” So REJECT all the fears, anger, and burdens and enjoy the present, through MEDITATING.
Some of us need to grow a little, so we have to adapt to REJECTING our negative thoughts by MEDITATING. REMEMBER WE DO NOT HAVE TO GAIN SOMETHING FROM MEDITATING, WE LOSE SOMETHING BY REJECTING OUR ANGER, OUR FEARS, OUR DISCOMFORT AND OUR STUBBORNNESS. WE LEARN TO BE AWARE OF THE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS WITHOUT JUDGING THEM.
TAKE CARE, ALWAYS STAY WELL, ALWAYS STAY HEALTHY. THANK YOU.
