“Don’t meditate to fix yourself, to heal yourself, to improve yourself,
to redeem yourself; rather, do it as an act of love,
of deep warm friendship to yourself.
In this way there is no longer any need
for the subtle aggression of self-improvement,
for the endless guilt of not doing enough.
It offers the possibility of an end to the ceaseless round of trying so hard
that wraps so many people’s lives in a knot.
Instead there is now meditation as an act of love.
How endlessly delightful and encouraging.”
Bob Sharples (via bodhi-in-green)
