advancing meditation: Awaken 2

A wish, an understanding, and confidence in … .

Mantra can be used as a wish for others and oneself. “May all beings awaken.” Empathy grows in one’s heart and mind as one wishes well for others. Kindness and self-care grow within one’s self as well.

Mantra can be stated as an understanding or with the conceptual understanding that it is true. With this, non-judgment increases. Pettiness and smallness of heart and mind decrease and a higher type of equanimity and compassion grows inside one.

Mantra can be lived from confidence. “I know this is so.” With this expression of mantra, one proceeds in the energy, statement, and presence of the mantra.

We try on all three in this meditation.
