The Goal is the Technique

“Meditation…is simply the creation of space in which we are able to expose and undo our neurotic games, our self deceptions, our hidden fears and hopes. We provide space through the simple discipline of doing nothing. The basic practice is to be present, right here. The goal is also the technique. Precisely being in this moment, neither suppressing nor wildly letting go, but being precisely aware of what you are.”
-Chogyam Trungpa

So much of mindful practices are about creating space in our minds and bodies so that we can truly see ourselves. When I have sat for extended periods of time, I have been able to observe my defense mechanisms, the narratives I have created that may or may not be true and how much of my experience is perception.

Acceptance of all aspects of myself has been one of the hardest pills to swallow HOWEVER when I am able to do it (because it’s a minute to minute decision), I am able to practice forgiveness with myself and others with more ease.
?
May I continue to see mySelf,
May I continue to accept and even love ALL aspects of myself,
May I forgive myself and others,
May I learn from my mistakes and make a conscious effort to create change.
