Feeling Your Way into Awareness in Meditation & Yoga

"Awareness cannot be known

by the intellectual part of the mind,



but the mind can and does

recognize awareness through feeling.

The thinking has not stopped

you are only holding it back.



It is an action on top of the action.



Silence and…

when you scatter your attention

a little here and a little there

You Can Always Be Conscious - It is Just a Matter of Surrender

"Everyone has situations

in their life where they say

'It's impossible to be present

in this situation.'



But impossibility

From "I Am" to Realizing Oneness with Everything in Meditation

are the same.



You may start in meditation with resting in 'I am,'

and feeling your sense of being

that is beyond thinking.



And that may turn into witnessing.



And witnessing may turn into

'everything simply is,'

the sense of no…
