Beware of looking for good and bad meditations

This is an ongoing series running through May to compliment the twice weekly meditation sessions that I will be hosting on YouTube (the videos have now been moved to my Vimeo page). If you have any questions, please contact me.

Whatever my meditation practice is, from my experience it is very easy to have judgements of how well I am doing. I can set arbitrary goals for myself based upon what I feel I should be aiming for, with the judge of whether I meet those goals being myself.

The problem with this arrangement is that both the self-imposed goals and the judgements of whether I have met them, is very subjective. In setting them up I drop into a duality of win or loose. There is a sense of aggression towards myself as to where I am at. This aggression can slip subtly into my daily life in my judgment of myself and others.

Instead, my invitation to you is to just follow the instruction of the meditation practice. Allow the wisdom and transformation to come out of the practice. Don’t go looking for answers, don’t go looking for insights, don’t go looking for anything. Just do the practice. Just follow the instruction.
