100 Words: Coming Back

IMG_20150803_202846869It may be that the satisfaction I need depends on my going away, so that when I’ve gone and come back, I’ll find it at home. – Rumi

Sensations are neutral.
Events are neutral.

It’s my mind that makes it good or bad, pleasant or unpleasant.
The essence of the practice is to stay with the essence of the sensation.
The direct experience.
Not the story. Not the judgment. Not the drama.

In this very moment: feel the tingling, pulsing, tightness, throbbing. And then drop the words and simply sense.

My mind may keep pulling me away.
Keep coming back.
