The Elemental Powers of Sat-Chit-Ananda are Your Essential Nature

Consider putting aside the term "meditation." Give it a rest.

Instead of conceiving "meditation" as something you do, allow yourself to embrace Sat-Chit-Ananda as something you are.

Clarity of mind is like the Sun, it only appears to come and go; it is us who turn away, but we cannot escape it.

Joy is like the ocean, it is ceaselessly surging and swelling. Swim and fish in that ocean.

Forgiveness is like the rain. It is vital to the roots. Welcome it when it comes, encourage others to step into it with you. If they are afraid, cup it in your hands and bring it to them.
