Re: Meditation help

I recognize that this wish
to create a better society,
end all the suffering
of all beings everywhere,
and protect the entire planet
may not seem particularly feasible

But whether or not
we accomplish such goals in our lifetime,
it is nevertheless deeply meaningful
to cultivate such a vast sense of responsibility,
and the wholehearted wish
to be able to benefit others.
This outlook is so wholesome and noble
that it is worth developing,
regardless of the probability
of actually accomplishing such a vast vision.
17th Karmapa from the book "The Heart Is Noble:
Changing the World from the Inside Out"

Re: Meditation help

Many people who meditate go through this. When the mind or body tries to still itself, there is sometimes a panic that is then an anger. It's okay! It's just something to work through.

You know what? I practice kundalini yoga, and lots of times we chant, which is great for grounding and gives you a focused energy point that goes into the collective, vs. going inward. Snatam Kaur has a beautiful CD called GRACE. You can google it. Try Ra Ma Da Sa...if you can sing it, you can breathe it, and it won't feel like "work" to meditate.

Best Wishes,
Sandy

Re: Meditation help



Not attached to happiness nor depressed about suffering
seek a stable and constant path
If we are always looking to feel good
and if on top of that our minds are lost in distraction
thinking about feeling good
then what will become of our life?
We will be diverted from our true purpose
and open ourselves to harm.
17th Karmapa from the book
"Music In The Sky: The Life, Art, And Teachings Of The 17Th Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje"

Smile Re: Meditation help

Here's a technique I've been using recently that seems to work-- First, make sure you have a few minutes to yourself, in private, including turning your phone off. 5 or 10 minutes at least.
Next sit comfortably, in your own way, no special posture. Then, close your eyes and hold PERFECTLY STILL. While doing this, be sure you're breathing easily and naturally, not too shallow or deep. Think whatever you like, but HOLD PERFECTLY STILL. That's it. "Still as Stone" meditation.
