buddha pond. In meditation, I have found that a completely quiet mind is impossible and an unrealistic goal. The metaphor if likening an ideally meditative mind to a 'still pond,' seems much more like a passive, unattached will settled over the myriad movements of the 10,000 things. After all, could water ever be considered 'still' by the ancient masters?!

Tranquility - yoga - meditation - Buddha
Reaction is automatic, response is chosen. You can change your painful reactions to life into peaceful responses - from low level dislike, frustration and judgement through to full blown anger... it is possible to transmute all of this into peaceful observation and conscious response. Here's the deal - fundamentally this isn't actually about being a better person, about personal growth, nor about making it better for people around you, nor about spiritually evolving (which are all just flow on consequences). Rather it is just simply that living in unconscious automatic reaction to life all the time is unpleasant and draining, and it sucks to live that way! So, practising peaceful response to life is actually about YOU feeling better right now and in the next moment, and in the next moment, because you allow yourself not to be sucked into the vortex of reactivity to what goes on around you, and thus reclaiming the ability to enjoy all the small moments of your life irrespective of circumstances. For example: - Someone says something hateful, you choose peaceful response (sometimes that is no response at all) - You are stuck in traffic and late for an appointment, you choose peaceful response (regardless of whether you make the appointment or there are flow on issues because of your lateness) - Someone you love gets sick and there is uncertainty about what will happen, you choose peaceful response - You burn the dinner, stub your toe, and run out of time to do the one thing you wanted to do before going to bed, and you choose peaceful response to each moment. YOU WILL EITHER HAVE PEACE FROM CHOSEN RESPONSE, or you will live your life in automatic reaction to externality and suffer as a result. I don't know about you, but I don't intend to kiss my life goodbye by giving my power away to automatic reactions and unconscious living. By some miracle, we were all born, and our hearts beat and we have this life to enjoy. Not a second to be given nor a breath to be wasted on reacting to what you cannot change and flushing precious energy down the toilet in low vibrational thoughts, feelings and behavior when you could redirect all of that to conscious peaceful response. From that position of inner peace you have ALL your precious energy available to make clear decisions, choose new actions and create better outcomes for the next coming moment. You allow yourself the conditions from which to be a high performer, the space from which to let your soul shine out (rather than your ego roar). CHOOSE. With love, Bernadette x

Meditation doesn’t change life. Life remains as fragile and unpredictable as ever. Meditation changes the heart’s capacity to accept life as it is. It teaches the heart to be more accommodating; not by beating it into submission, but by making it clear that accommodation is a gratifying choice. ~Sylvia Boorstein

A home altar should reflect your own needs for achieving a body-mind state of peace and contentment.
We enjoy using incense in our meditation practice. After a while, our body and mind automatically begin to relax the moment we smell the fragrance. And nowadays, you can find incense in scents like Lavender-Rose, Cinnamon, Lemon Basil, Honey Ginger, even Fresh Tomato. Heavenly! ~~ Houston Foodlovers Book Club

Through meditation, I will come to an understanding with myself. I will come to peace with myself. I will become calmer, more understanding, patient and learn from the day to day.
But also, there is no *wrong way to meditate. Most people don't realize they are already doing some form of mindful practice, which could be considered meditative. Any time you allow yourself to get into a calm, relaxed, thoughtful state of mind, you are in a meditative state. Whatever gets you into a calm expansive state of being. . . do it. Often.
➰ or wrong way. simply find the way that brings you joy. it will change the way your mind behaves. it will change everything. #meditation

Buddhayana - the path of Buddha "Do not follow the ideas of others, but learn to listen to voice within yourself." ~Zen Master Dogen~
All of us have the potential to awaken to a peace and well-being that aren't dependent on whether a particular moment is joyful or sorrowful. Embracing our life in this way is the promise of peace left to us by the Buddha. In the words of Thich Nhat Hanh: "It is exactly because the Buddha was a human being that countless buddhas are possible."
**Meditation is not a way of making your mind quiet. It’s a way of entering into the quiet that’s already there buried under the 50,000 thoughts the average person thinks every day. — Deepak Chopra (via sunshinesoul8)

"Let us sit here for a few minutes. My Master always asked me to meditate whenever I saw an expanse of water. Here its placidity reminds us of the vast calmness of God. As all things can be reflected in water, so the whole universe is mirrored in the lake of the Cosmic Mind. So my gurudeva often said." ~ Master Mahasaya to Paramahansa Yogananda in Autobiography of a Yogi

“After meditating for some years, I began to see the patterns of my own behavior. As you quiet your mind, you begin to see the nature of your own resistance more clearly, struggles, inner dialogues, the way in which you procrastinate and develop passive resistance against life. As you cultivate the witness, things change. You don’t have to change them. Things just change.” — Ram Dass
