In this sitting, we reaffirm heart so as to reacquaint with mind.

advancing meditation: the ordinary essence of mind

“Meditate on the ordinary essence of mind.” How does one do that?

There are countless ways, and we have been doing many of them since the very first meditation within The Practice of Living Awareness years ago and here within the advancing practice. Simply, awareness is Awareness. Common cognizance is reporting something profound and ordinary at the same time: the fullness of Awareness is within the ordinary experience of cognizance itself. Awareness is Awareness.
