An amazing Meditation

Post by Jesse » Mon Apr 23, 2018 10:13 pm

So, I've decided to begin meditating again.

I just ended my second session in a very very long time.

I clearly saw that everything that arises creates suffering because the moment it arises we grasp on to it, and in doing so it creates the self.

when we become detached from this habitual tendency to grasp ontop everything that arises(feelings, thoughts, perceptions, ideas), peace, joy, compassion, and clarity are just there. The Moment phenomena arise, you see it's real nature; empty.

and without clinging what remains is hard to explain; it's just witnessing, with full understanding, sometimes when something arises you cling to it momentarily, and then you realise in this clinging, we are falling into an illusion similar to a dream, and then clarity returns and the dream ends, all problems cease, because the problem it'self is this sort of laziness; where we allow this deeply embedded tendency to cling onto phenomena to continue endlessly.

Sorry for rambling, it's been a long time since I practiced at all, and this was a very good session. I feel more peaceful than I ever have, so maybe I'm sharing a bit too much.

Anyway, I'm hesitant to post this, but I will anyway.
