Sometimes I get the oddest downloads...
On the last day of the 10-day silent meditation course I just took, I saw an image of THIS: cut out letters taped above my couch of one of the main teachings of Vipassana.
It’s such a beautiful reminder of the impermanence of Life, and the practice of remaining equanimous amidst all of Life’s changes.
This is how the Buddha achieved enlightenment — by ceasing to react with cravings or resistance to anything and everything that occurs on the outside, as well as within.
He discovered a meditation technique whereby focusing on the sensations of the body, you can release all of the old reactions (saṃskāra) until there is no more accumulation.
No more house to hold the Soul.
Just pure Light.
I am so grateful for this meditation technique and all the Vipassana courses I’ve taken.
I always experience transformation afterwards...and I can already feel my own being CHANGING.
You are never stuck or stagnant. In fact, your body and this reality are simply particles of energy that arise and pass away at a rate that is so rapid it actually makes you believe that everything is solid and real.
It is not.
So allow yourself to change.
