The Way of Meditation

Posted on February 13, 2015 at 8:15 PM



Ultimately meditation is a way of being and not just a technique to produce results but a way of orienting and grounding oneself in the world. In other words meditation is not just something that you can do; it is also something you can be.


The way of meditationbbbeautiful-calm-cloud-clouds-colours-favim-com-364458n is the ongoing experience of being self-aware, open and kind-hearted, not only when sitting silently on a meditation cushion, but at all times. Meditation is not just practices geared toward producing results but is the continuous uniting with the intelligent aware flow of life which can only be felt immediately and directly, without deliberation. Meditation cultivates good qualities which are already present within you – it’s a way to be natural, spontaneous and to build trust in your own basic goodness.


Grounded in an openness that is unbounded, the Way is pure and receptive within the present situation, allowing creativity to flourish.


This way is spacious, loving and non-judgemental.


To live the way of meditation is to place primary importance on simply being; perfectly complete already. The descriptions of the present situation are useful but always of secondary importance and always understood to be biased, founded on assumptions of lack and incompleteness; this is the essential stress of our lives.


Living from the ego via a narrative continuously disturbs the mind. Without taking the thoughts or stories seriously the mind can be left to rest without disturbance and this calm script-less way of being uncovers a type of pure awareness that is non-conceptual, naturally present and content in the moment. Meditation could be said to be timeless in this regard comfortably; being in the eternal now. This type of awareness can see through the ego character that is anxiously preoccupied with achieving future-orientated goals or trying to act the right way and in this way awareness can remain undisturbed and naturally open.


This open presence can then be recognized as who you really are, your ultimate identity without the stories, your original face as they say in Zen and you can confidently respond to situations spontaneously rather than habitually. Awareness is left unaltered and free and is directly seen to be complete, peaceful and the constant basis or ground of all experiences.


This essential and immediate presence of open awareness has been pointed out by mystics and contemplatives throughout history. Meditation masters have called it by various names but they all seem to discover that the naturally abiding, clear light of awareness at the foundation of all human beings is also full of energy, bliss, peace, love and wisdom, an abundant reservoir of divine qualities.


The Way of meditation is an ongoing abiding as that which is eternally you.
