Meditation happens automatically when you have the right conditions and you allow the natural process to unfold.
You don’t have to force anything. Your body, in its wisdom, seizes the opportunity to heal and balance if you give it half a chance.
Your meditation practice can totally be that opportunity.
When you meditate, you have designated the time out and in effect, sent your nervous system a message,
“You are free. I won’t make you do anything else right now.”
The goal of all training is to be natural with yourself so that meditation doesn’t feel like a technique at all. Instead, it’s just a way of being with yourself.
There is something wonderful and almost miraculous in how meditation works.
If you do the simplest technique, in the easiest manner, you tend to enter a state of profound physical relaxation and regeneration.
When you’re natural and unaffected with yourself, your experience changes continuously and your senses pulsate. You feel as though the knowledge of how to meditate is your own, that this wisdom comes from inside you.
Because it does.
