Sitting with the World

Sitting With The World – such a beautiful sentiment isn’t it? When I’m out of sorts with the world, when nothing seems to be going right, I sit to this practice and allow everything just to be and, more often than not, equilibrium is restored …As you sit, just sit with the world, with whatever is there, all of the arisings and passings away in your mind, body, and environment. As you notice sights and sounds, thoughts and feelings, memories and anticipations, relax into them. Relax your mind and body. Actively do nothing.  Make no efforts. Just sit, just be, at least for now.
Let go of all of the things that frantically direct your day-to-day existence: me, him, her, past, future, plans, desires, aversions, hopes, goals, concerns, anticipations, fears, everything. Don’t grasp at any of these things, don’t resist any of them. Just sit with whatever is there. Things naturally settle this way, and the mind comes to peace.
The mentality is this. There is nowhere that you need to go, nothing that you need to achieve, no one that you need to be. Those ideas are illusions, fabrications of the mind. You are complete and whole where you are, just sitting with the world.

Try it, don’t try to make anything happen, just sit like a king or a queen and let whatever will be, just be ..
