Daily Affirmations

Meditation in Action


I will allow myself to have a simple relationship with activities, so that they may become a meditation in action. When thoughts arise throughout this process that seem to be demanding my attention, rather than give them attention and energy, I will not further feed them; instead, I will allow them to pass by, simply observing them and letting them go. I will try to get a sense of the transparent quality of thought and action in my life. I live from a deep place within me. I take an action but I am not the action. I have a thought but I am not the thought. I am something deeper and more constant.
I am aligned with an invisible life force.
The joy inherent in simplicity . . . here is not pleasurable in the ordinary sense but is an ultimate and fundamental sense of freedom . . . therefore, the attitude one brings to meditation practice should be very simple, not based upon trying to collect pleasure or avoid pain. Rather, meditation is a natural process, working on the material of pain and pleasure as the path. Chogyam Trungpha
