Meditation


by Josho Pat Phelan

I would like to talk about breath—how to practice with our breath during zazen and how to use our breathing as a vehicle for awareness in our everyday activity. As we become aware of our breath, we find different kinds of breathing. The breath may be quick and shallow; it may be rough or smooth; subtle and refined; monitored or restricted and tense; it may be deep and relaxed, steady, calm and peaceful; or loose and free. As we become more aware of our breath, we become more aware of our state of mind...

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Olympic fever... each athlete has trained their bodies to perform fantastic athletic feats, but what about the training of their minds? Super Bowl coaches do it, pro athletes do it, let's all do it. Gretchen offers a quick lesson, and I think this is an easy meditation to try.

 

Meditation


by Cecily MacArthur

While replacing a family photo in one of the little plastic frames that stick on my refrigerator, I found the original item I had displayed in that frame many years ago. It was a yellowed newspaper clipping of the “Ten Secrets That Can Transform Your Life.” I love it when you find an opportunity to compare yourself now to who you were in the past, and to celebrate how much you have grown. As I read down the list, I smiled broadly, so pleased to know that all of these “secrets” reflect how I now live my life...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Number one in this list really encapsulates it all, right?!

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Eckhart Tolle speaks about being aware of your breath - beyond the mind. Being conscious of the breath connects you to the present whether in meditation or in just living.

 

Meditation


by Lama Thubten Yeshe

Meditation is the way we realize the nature of the mind. Therefore it’s something that we absolutely have to do. Since Western education does not explain how the mind functions in everyday life, many Westerners these days are seeking out meditation because they are not satisfied with what they’ve been taught about the mind.

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Buddhist teacher Lama Thubten Yeshe describes here what he believes meditation is and is not.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Using real time neurofeedback, Judson Brewer of the Yale School of Medicine shares a shining example of how our brains work during meditation. Simply changing the awareness of the meditator has stunning results.

 

Meditation


by Roxana Jones

In the year of 2003 I met Drunvalo Melchizedek for the first time. Drunvalo has been one of the most influential teachers I’ve had so far. Thanks to him, I learned about the sacred space of the heart, a hidden space that has been described in several of the most sacred texts throughout human history...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Imagine a reality "lived in the heart." Roxanna talks about this and where the "real heart" is located. She speaks of a tiny chamber that lies within your physical heart that can be accessed through meditation.

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Dr. Siegel uses the term "brain hygiene". Cool term. Watch on.

 

Meditation


by Ron Crouch

You’ve been making your way through the Dark Night, and have been working through Reobservation. Now a subtle but remarkable shift begins to happen: there is the clear sense that while all the aches and pains are still occurring, you have stepped aside and are simply watching them. Welcome to the stage of Equanimity...

 

Editor's Note: In Part 5 of our series of the states and stages of enlightenment as meticulously recorded in ancient Buddhist texts, Hawaii-based meditation teacher Ron Crouch describes the insight knowledge of Equanimity. This divine abiding, Ron points out, is the yogi’s first true taste of liberation. “No matter what difficulty comes up in meditation you can observe it calmly and let it go,” he says. Go to Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.

Instant Gratification

by Egbert Sukop

Unless people discover the unadulterated joy of giving money to a stranger without hesitation and devoid of the slightest motive of exchange ("What's in it for me?"), they will hardly be able to receive money from strangers free of emotional complications. Don't even expect to hear a 'thank you', a friendly smile, or a nod...
