Meditation: luminous emptiness

This week completes with a reflection on reflecting itself.

The act of contemplation (and all its various forms) is one that brings forward luminous emptiness, derives from these two inseparable qualities, while contemplation is also an example or expression of luminous emptiness.

More on that is explained before we meditate in this podcast; but, simply, contemplation is like sunlight outside or a table lamp turned on in a dark room.

Additionally, because “all beings are equal to myself,” especially human beings (in that we are human), and just as each of us has matured in mindfulness, harmlessness, virtuous acts of body, speech, and mind through the concerted effort of a meditation practice on and off the cushion (integrated into our life), then humanity is assured the same results through the same human capacities for self-reflection, contemplation, and integration of insight and mindfulness into human life.

How marvelous!
