Awakening With Breathing | Patheos

“This technique has been around for a long time. It is almost certainly the oldest and most widespread form of meditation practice. It has been used to bring people to see their true natures. And it still works. Our true nature is very simple, but it’s easy for us to miss. It’s always with us, but we get so distracted all the time.”

  1. Thanks for this post. I really liked the bit where you say “We don’t come into the world, we come out of it. We don’t live in the universe. We are the universe. The entire ocean in a drop.” It reminds me of a part of the Ashtavakra Gita ‘The heart of awareness ….. ” I am the unbounded deep. In whom the waves of all the worlds. Naturally rise and fall.” When I studied Buddhism, this verse was closest to my heart.
