Recently I was amazed by people telling me what meditation is. Something called 'deep meditation' can result in an anger outburst, even a physical attack? Que? 🤪 Another explanation was 'blocking thoughts' ... Que x 2? 🤦🏼♂️
How about 'repose'? In other words allowing the mind to wander, in past, future, worries, daily grindings until the physical repose exhausts the minds chatter. Then we have repose and are meditating ... That is how I was taught. Repose, settling, returning to stillness.
What poses as meditation in your experience?
“The zazen I speak of is not learning meditation. It is simply the Dharma gate of repose and bliss. . . . Traps and snares can never reach it.” Fukanzazengi , Eihei Dogen.
