A paradox can be defined as any person, thing, or situation exhibiting an apparently contradictory nature.
Meditation and many other spiritual practices, and hence their teachings, are highly paradoxical in nature
- We learn the skills of meditation and diligently practice, so we can ultimately let go of it all.
- Often we’re trying to discover or attain some other state of being, that we’re are already in.
- Whatever we do think we have attained or realised along the way, becomes something else that have to let go of.
- We think meditation is all in our mind, when it turns out to be primarily down to our heart.
- We yearn for healing enlightenment, yet our liberation lies in compassionately embracing our darkness.
- And in the end, the only time you can practice pure meditation, is when you know you no longer need it anymore.
- We search for our dearest love in the rarest of experiences, only to find our true love was right here all along under our noses, here in the most ordinary of things.
Does this all mean that meditation and spiritual practices are a waste of time? Hardly. For it is only by going through these transformational processes, that we arrive at the simplicity of our natural awakened self.
