7. 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
