We can’t truly open to the waves of life unless we recognize our Oceanness, the formless awareness that is our source. This meditation begins with awakening the senses and then invites us to discover the spacious presence in the background of all experience.
NOTE: This meditation was given on the 4th morning of the 2018 IMCW New Year’s Retreat. It’s especially enjoyed when the mind is a bit quieter.
You might reflect on these words from the Tibetan tradition:
Utterly awake, senses wide open.
Utterly open, non-fixating awareness.
