This week, Lee gave me an article written by Steve Hagen. I love what he has to say: "As long as we insist that meditation must have some use or purpose or meaning, or fulfill us in certain ways, we fail to understand it. As my teacher (and many other teachers before him) used to say, 'Meditation is useless.'" So, here I am in the pursuit of futility. I'm searching for what is USELESS, but there is a war going on in my head and that is very distracting. I'm always on the quest for the chalice, but guess what Lori? The chalice is empty.
Welcome to the Slow Breath Soft Heart blog. I hope you enjoy my thoughts on meditation, and it inspires you to try to start or enhance your own practice. I'm always interested in writing content about meditation in the legal field for your publication, speaking on the topic, or teaching an immersive session. Please see more information about my programs, or get in touch.
Meditation is not about ambition. It is about intention. It is not about doing it right or being the best or even about becoming enlightened. It is about sitting in stillness for twenty minutes every day. That’s all. Now, see what happens.
