Meditation is Not Just a Practice on the Cushion: Happiness is Within
"Meditation is the greatest gift we can give ourselves but it is easily misunderstood. Just as there are numerous choices in the world -- where we live, what we wear, what work we do, etc. -- so too there are many choices when it comes to meditation techniques or forms of inner journeying. However, we often see people holding tightly to their method or technique as if it were a matter of dire importance, which misses the deeper meaning of meditation.
In our blog last week, "Meditation: Not What You Think," we made the point that meditation is actually not any particular technique or method but an experience of radiant emptiness that arises naturally as all trying stops."
