The Life-Giving Rhythm of Meditation

By
In general

There’s a rhythm to meditation practice.
When you get in synch with that rhythm it generates coherence, beauty, and clarity in your daily life.

But, getting in synch won’t happen on its own.
Our own habits of mindlessness and the distracting pull of the ever-present screens degrade attentional focus and fragment the mind. It takes a conscious commitment to find and align with the rhythm of meditation.

This Nano-teaching is from drawn from a month-long program offered to the Wisdom Heart Community (which is open to everyone here).

During that month, we strengthened our commitment and discovered how to align our lives with the rhythm of meditation.

Highlights from this teaching:

  • When you get into the rhythm of meditation practice, it gets into you.
    You need to start it up . . . but once you get in the groove, the rhythm will take you. 
  • Weave the practice into the pattern of your day.
    Keep that rhythm going, day-in-day out, until you can’t not do it.
  • Intensity is the secret sauce of spiritual development.
    Intensity isn’t straining. It’s not a no-pain-no-gain thing. Intensity, in spiritual practice, is being profoundly, joyously absorbed in what you’re doing.
