Spiritual Minimalism – Part 2

Meditation… I will assume the reader understands meditation and even that they have practiced, or have an established practice now. In keeping with the theme of “spiritual minimalism” I will keep this short.

Meditation is often treated as a “practice” with regimented times and durations.

Go mobile… Consider meditation as “portable” in that no matter where you are or what you are doing, a portion of your focus is on being.

In this way menial tasks become meaningful. Boredom is banished. When Being is invited there is always a sense of “newness”.

Over time this portion grows and Being comes into the forefront. Being then informs all worldly transactions from a place of knowing and infuses them with peace and contentment.

Meditation is possible at all times and under all circumstances as meditation is what you ARE, not a doing. The growth here comes from not allowing that growing portion of focus on Being (you) to be re-focused on objects. If a circumstance arises and mind becomes distracted, just gently bring your focus back with no internal criticism or commentary.

And so you now know what it truly means to “work from home!” This effortless practice becomes a joy when it is discovered that meditation is “what remains” – you – prior to phenomenal experience.
