True meditation has no direction or goal. It is pure wordless surrender, pure silent prayer. All methods aiming at achieving a certain state of mind are limited, impermanent, and conditioned. Fascination with states leads only to bondage and dependency. True meditation is abidance as primordial awareness. ~Adyashanti

If your heart is beating, then you are a drum. Stay interested in your heartbeat, and you will find yourself a drummer. If you are breathing, then you are a song. Stay interested in your breathing, and you will find yourself singing. If you are alive, then you are a dance. Stay interested in your life and you can’t help but find yourself dancing.

Reality is here all the time, waiting for us to wake up to its rawness and beauty, waiting for us to step out of our mind, out of our limited perspective and waiting for us to directly experience the aliveness and wonder of Life.

It is a thousand times better to make every kind of mistake than to slide into the habit of hesitation, of uncertainty, of indecision.
