Hour-long guided nondual meditation. Begins with 15 minutes of deep belly breathing, and mindfulness of body posture. Then allowing awareness to contact external sounds, then body sensations. Finally diving into vast, spacious awareness with no object.
Dharma talk begins around 1:03:00 followed by Q&A.
In the history of spirituality, there has long been a dichotomy between the method of effort and the method of no-effort. Meditation can be us trying hard to learn, grow, and cultivate our hearts and minds, but it can also be a recognition of what is already complete, already perfect. Which one of these is correct? Both. Both views are helpful and interesting in our practice.
In this talk, however, I emphasize the latter view, in which there is nothing to do, nothing to gain, nothing to find. Everything is already present, and it’s merely a matter of relaxing out of the story of struggle and goals that allows us to contact that which we wanted—and that has always been present and available.
