No matter what generation we are born into or come from, there are unique stressors, challenges, and continual movement within everyday life. Meditation offers us the opportunity to return to equanimity, or begin our journey towards establishing it for the first time. Consistently practiced meditation can help develop stability within the mind which transforms the life that continues outside of meditation. Meditation allows us to experience the spaciousness underlying each moment, no matter what is going on in our inner and outer worlds. We touch an experience of the present that is unaffected by judgment, separation, classification or concept. Meditation is sitting in the WHAT IS.
There are many philosophies and traditions of meditation--and they are all vehicles to our innermost knowing, interconnectivity, and belongingness. In Buddhism it is said that meditation is like a raft in a wild sea. Once we have reached the shore of stability through our practice, we no longer need the vehicle. Utilize the tools and the meditative process unfolds as one dedicates themselves to consistent practice. From wherever we begin, our experience widens through built sensitivity, established presence and stability, and the ability to manage emotions, thoughts, and stressors with integrated personal understanding.
