Hold On, Let Go

     This morning, I woke up from a deep sleep, and immediately sat down to meditate. The house was quiet. The sun shined in. I felt no desire for anything - generally (eg food, drink), or from the meditation. I felt peace, stillness, equanimity. Silence & stillness permitted clear awareness, which in turn allowed me to perceive what is appropriate to this moment, which was simply to be peace.

     Being open-mind-heartedly engaged with whatever the present moment holds makes most of us afraid, so we anxiously try to escape :

    "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." Joseph Campbell

     Be not afraid, it's your time to become a mature human being :
