At first, meditation is like standing at the water’s edge, observing the ocean. It is thrilling to watch the drama of waves rolling and crashing, spilling over sand and rock. And then, resting into the rhythms, you might drop deeper, discovering mysterious worlds beneath the surface waves. You may even find you are the entire ocean, the waves, life teeming under the surface, and the profound quiet of the abyss.
In mindful presence,
You’re actually in deep meditation all the time. It’s just covered up by all the noise, and all the thoughts, and all the emotional things that are running through you. It’s always there underneath.
