MEDITATION SOUNDS LIKE A CULT!

Meditation has been around for thousands of years. The Buddha helped to formalize the mindfulness practice. Meditation has been a part of every main religion. However the practice of meditation is really a secular practice. One does not need to join a religion or cult to practice it. In reality meditation is an exploration of our mind. It is exploring the true nature of reality. How do we create what we believe? What is its truth? What is our relationship to it? There is no woo woo about this!

IF I MEDITATE WILL I STILL HAVE PROBLEMS?

IF I MEDITATE WILL I STILL HAVE PROBLEMS?

Mindfulness is not about “Freedom from pain and suffering but the freedom to be with pain and suffering.” The purpose of the practice is not to eliminate one’s problem but to develop the skill to be with one’s problems. One will still experience sadness, anger, joy, guilt etc. but with a relationship that lets one see what is happening and be with it with greater acceptance.
