Simple Steps: #34 Illusion

For the yogi, there is a state of freedom that exists above all else.

It can be reached by constant inquiry into the nature of things.

Meditation becomes our tool to see things clearly and perceive reality beyond the illusions that cloud the mind.

Todays Simple Step

Give yourself 10 minutes to sit without distraction and simply observe the quiet place inside your mind.

Every time a thought arrives and interrupts your quiet space, just recognize it ("there's a thought") and let it go.
No energy. No judgment. Just going away...

Notice the feeling of peace that accompanies the quiet once you find it again.
Here is your place of power, here is your place of truth, and this is your simple step...your mind will wander, and you will notice new thoughts arriving.  Your journey is to let go over and over again.  The peace is impermanent but you will find it - simply - again and again and again.

Till next time....
