Finding a Way to Stay Sane in a Crazy World

 

I’ve been asked how I managed to survive what I lived through. Thanks to a few years of learning about different meditation practices, before I was completely disabled and brain injured by chemical exposures, I was able to see things a bit differently than I might otherwise have, and this little change of perspective allowed me to keep going when things totally fell apart.

I’ve recently run across this most excellent short teaching by Sogyal Rinpoche  discussing the purpose and benefits of meditation:

Coming to Know the Mind

<p>

“During this recent teaching in Berlin, Sogyal Rinpoche taught on the deeper aspects of transforming the mind and the purpose of meditation.

You can find more teachings about understanding the mind and meditation at SogyalRinpoche.org, as well as in Chapters 4 & 5 of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying.”

 

I also ran across this great little article:

 

Why We Find It Hard to Meditate

It’s time to stop making excuses! Ed and Deb Shapiro examine the most common reasons people give for not meditating and offer some helpful advice for overcoming those obstacles.

I hope you find as much inspiration from these as I did.

 

 Please Buddha
