per il momento la mia è una illuminazione a gas.
per arrivare al LED c’è ancora un sacco di strada.

non sedersi

né dalla parte della ragione

né dalla parte del torto

per capire

devo stare in piedi

Diventiamo tutto quello a cui resistiamo”, dice. “Se resistiamo alla rabbia, siamo sempre arrabbiati. Se resistiamo alla tristezza, siamo sempre tristi. Se resistiamo alla sofferenza, siamo sempre sofferenti. Se resistiamo alla confusione, siamo sempre confusi. Pensiamo di opporre resistenza a certi stati d’animo perché esistono, ma in realtà esistono perché noi gli resistiamo

We don’t meditate to become better people or have special
experiences. Meditation is simply the way we relate to our already
existing enlightened state.

How to sit

May 10, 2016

-Set aside a room or corner or a cushion that you use just for sitting.

-The sound of a bell is a wonderful way to begin sitting meditation. If you don’t have a bell you can download a recording of the sound of a bell onto your phone or computer.

-When you sit, keep your spinal column quite straight, while allowing your body to be relaxed. Relax every muscle in your body, including the muscles in your face. Consider smiling slightly, a natural smile. Your smile relaxes all your facial muscles.

-Notice your breathing. As you breathe in, be aware that you are breathing in. As you breathe out, notice that you are breathing out. As soon as we pay attention to our breath, body, breath and mind come together. Every in-breath can bring joy; every out-breath can bring calm and relaxation. This is a good enough reason to sit.

-When you breathe in mindfully and joyfully, don’t worry about what your sitting looks like from the outside. Sit in such a way that you feel you have already arrived.

– It’s wonderful to have a quiet place to sit in your home or workplace. If you are able to find a cushion that fits your body well, you can sit for a long time without feeling tired. But you can practice mindful sitting wherever you are. If you ride the bus or the train to work, use your time to nourish and heal yourself.

-If you sit regularly, it will become a habit. Even the Buddha still practiced sitting every day after his enlightenment. Consider daily sitting practice to be a kind of spiritual food. Don’t deprive yourself and the world of it.

La ragione è una forza armonizzatrice, una forza di controllo, più che una forza creatrice.

Bertrand Russell (via abatelunare)

etherealmeditation:

The flowering of human consciousness is the dissolution of ego. It is the transformational process undergone on an individual level, that ultimately dissolves the individual identity so that one can be consciously united with the all. It is the purification process that allows you to see, not from the perspective of a human being, but from the perspective of pure formless awareness. Instead of being a human living inside the universe, you become the formless space that allows all form and experience to take place. You realize the universe is within you. All is here. All is now. All is one.
