Meditation happens when you let go of "to do" and connect with "to be."
- To be with the breath
- To be in touch with the heart
- To be present in the moment
- To be kind to whatever arises
When we are too hard on ourselves and think we aren’t “doing it right”, we keep ourselves cut off from our true nature which is basically good, decent, whole, and awake. Well-being and happiness isn’t something out there we have to struggle towards-- it’s an inherent aspect of who and what we already are. When we make friends with ourselves and learn that our minds and our thoughts are not the enemy, this clarity shines through the way the sun does after a storm.
