Thanks for your post. I think we have this idea that meditation needs to be some formal time set aside to practice a designated script. I find this kind of defeats the purpose…we are only following advice from others again, rather than seeking the quiet from within.
When we practice a quiet mind in our everyday life, it becomes much more natural to rid ourselves of clutter and to actually live in the moment.
Mediation needs to be not so much about the word as it does about choices we make about how we live and a practice of listening to what is inside of us.
