Episode 24: Meditation Part 3 of 4 (Building Your ToolKit)

The inner state of meditation is always there and we can reach it at any time, from any place and under any condition.

Research into various lines of meditation, martial arts and religious studies reveals a vast resource of knowledge on documented practices by “professional sitters”, yogis, and elders of the faith.

To help ease the path to these inner states, gently allow your intuition to welcome people and places that enhance this knowledge and welcome some real quiet time.

Be mindful of attachment! Each time, each person, each place can AND will have a different tool that feels right in that now. Listen to your heart, and the choice is already made.

Sit still for a while. Or: Choose one thing, and just do that right now. Until you’re done. Do it fully. If you choose the mala, be one with the mala. Let the outside world fade away. Really smell that familiar time and place, really touch their hands and hear the sounds around you. Those are simply select examples to give you an idea of the fullness we hope you will dig for in this experience. And then, when you’re ready, just let it all go and be still.
