Active Meditation


There are many ways
to meditate

There is only
one goal
of all meditation
if we could call
it that

The goal of meditation
is to let go
of the idea
of being the one in control

Not because of what
letting go brings
to the meditator

But because
of the truth
revealed in
letting go

If you have
not been drawn
to meditate
very much
see if this
appeals to you:

Whatever you are doing
give yourself wholly to it

Yes even that which
you don't want
give yourself wholly
to that too
Give yourself
to the not-wanting

Whovever you are with
give yourself wholly to them

Yes even those who
you don't want
give yourself wholly
to them too
Give yourself
to the not-wanting

If this seems too much
start simply
notice the thoughts
and feelings
that prevent you
from being present wholly

Simply notice them
without judgement
There is no need to judge
anyone or anything
for a while
And if judgment should arise
there is no need
to judge the judgement

Active meditation
is this
being present
to what is here
wholly

It is not something
we need to strive
to do
It is actually the
natural state

May we discover this
in ourselves
