Meditation: friendship with oneself

All preliminary meditation practices lead to heart-mind. Heart-mind is the source of ease, tranquility, peace, of lightness and heartfulness, of the goodness that often is felt when a sitting gels.

Heart-mind is also that which in us cares, seeks beauty, harmonizes, sees the potential in another. Heart-mind is why we have pets, why we volunteer or try to make the world a better place.

Yet for all the kindness that many people give to others, they are not friendly with themselves. Self-judgement, criticism, competitiveness, ignoring oneself or the signals of emotions, aches or pains, or overwhelm are examples of unkindness to one’s self.

Let us sit in heart-mind with ourself.
