“For people who live in the world and other people depend on, the goal of meditation is adaptation. It’s so that you thrive in your daily life.”
“In a sense, in meditation, you are learning to hold your own self. Like, your soul, your scared human person, your aching heart, your exhausted body, your dreams, your love of the world. You’re learning to hold all that, with great tenderness, so that all the parts of you can come together and form an alliance, an internal team, because they all want to work together.”
Did you realize that every time your breath cycles, you’ve experienced a tiny meditation? Inhaling, building tension, then exhaling and relaxing—this is the same pattern that occurs when one meditates, and meditation is as natural to the human body and mind as breathing.
