Wrong meditation technique

Many Westerners think meditation is about having a blank empty mind with no though occurring at all.

They get upset when they can’t achieve an empty thoughtless mind. But actually this is an incorrect understanding of meditation and the wrong goal to aim for.

You’ll never get a blank empty mind, meditation is actually about observation, just watch whatever is going on, witness it without getting involved.
Be just a witness without any action or reaction to whatever you witness.

Namo Amida Buddha

I just wanted to let you know that you are completely loved and supported by the universe,
during each and every second,
Until the very end of time.

You will never be alone.

Living mindfully is not about forcing positivity all the time. It is instead seeing the picture as a whole, acknowledging it, and remembering to keep on open mind towards all aspects of it.

Try not to worry too much about who is currently in your life. Those who are meant to be there will remain, and those who are not will come and go. It is absolutely wonderful to keep connections with others, however don’t go too far out of your way to rekindle a relationship that simply can not stay ignited. Treasure those who are closest to you, treasure those you love, and treasure yourself.

The life of a Spiritual Warrior

A spiritual warrior leads a simple life:

Eats when hungry,
Drinks when thirsty,
Sleeps when tired,
Enjoys his/her pleasures,
And labours as required.

A warrior doesn’t regret the past,
Or worry about the future.
A warrior lives in the present,
And enjoys the moment.
A warrior trusts in his/her fate,
Knows his/her true Self,
And is virtuous to all he/she meets.
