Life - Life Deepens our Meditation Practice





Life provides the trials and challenges needed to deepen our Meditation practice and make it more genuine. Life is the acid test that shows us whether we are being true to our Meditation or just fooling around. Life evaluates our performance by giving us test after test.

If our day-to-day emotional reactions do not become clearer and easier to manage, then it means that we have been just wasting our time.

The firewood has a certain amount of strength in it. It has a burning capacity. It will burn out sooner or later. You just have to keep the fire burning, as in be aware, just as you have demonstrated your intention to be aware. If the fire is strong, the wood will burn faster, if the wood is dry, the wood will burn faster. Here fire being strong is a metaphor for your awareness. Similarly, if the thought is light or does not contain an emotional charge or trauma, it burns away faster, but if a thought has weight or is emotionally charged or related to some repeated trauma, it will hold on for longer. You may not be able to overcome it in one session or even in multiple sessions. This does not mean that the fire is not burning or that the wood is not burning away. It is just a dif
