“Meditative states are not important in themselves. Meditation is a way to quiet the mind so you can practice all daylong wherever you are; see when there is grasping or aversion, clinging or suffering; and then let it go. What’s left is enlightenment, always found here and now, a release of identification with the changing conditions of the world,a resting in awareness. This involves a simple yet profound shift of identity from the myriad, ever-changing conditioned states to the unconditioned consciousness–the awareness which knows them all.

May you be free from suffering and the causes of suffering!
All my best,
