8. Mindfulness Meditation

A guided meditation with spiritual teacher Adyashanti. The art of allowing everything to be as it is. "When we sit without a demand on this moment, without waiting for the next moment, without waiting to get it -- whatever "it" is -- when we are not waiting to get enlightened or to get love, peace, or a quiet mind, and when we stop demanding anything from ourselves -- then the sacred opens up simply because there is no demand being made upon it. True sacred relationship with this moment flowers when we are not asking it to be other than it is. Then the beauty blossoms. But if we ask the smallest thing of this moment, then we start to miss the beauty. Our asking distorts what we are able to see and experience in ourselves. The mind thinks that to be free, to be liberated or enlightened means to be wiped clean of all unpleasant experiences, but that's not the way it is. The Divine wouldn't dare defile itself by removing something. That would be like cutting off your arm. But to experience these same emotions or experiences as the mystery, as God, and as the mystery of yourself, is to totally transform them." ~ Quotes by Adyashanti
9. Acceptance

A guided meditation on emptying the mind with Buddhist teacher Gil Fronsdal. "The third form of patience is acceptance of truth. It is the willingness to see deeply, without resistance, the truth of the moment and the truth of the deepest levels of reality. This includes living in accord with the insight that at our core there is no self to build up, hang onto, or defend. Seeing the luminous emptiness at the center of all things means that we can begin to let go of grasping to a self-conscious and fixed idea of who we are. This requires a kind of patience, because deep spiritual insight is an affront to the ego. Most of us orient our lives around a limited view of ourselves; it can be quite frightening to let this view go. The patient acceptance of truth that allows us to let go is a personal strength developed together with the strengths of virtue, discernment, wisdom, resolve and loving-kindness." ~ Quotes by Gil Fronsdal
