Acceptance of what is..

I was slowly opening a bunch of snail mails the other day when a mail from the civic compliance was trying to grab my attention. My heart skipped a beat. There we go again, another speeding ticket. This time clocked 45 KM in a 40KM Zone, a whopping $190. My initial reaction was, why why is it happening to me. I felt the anger overtaking me, felt uneasy and a bit anxious. $190 could get me couple of nice shirts, pay my bills or perhaps a dinner or two for the family. Suddenly something dawned on me. I began to observe my own conditioned behaviour, observed the mixed emotions, and the anxiety. I began to accept my mistake. Now I felt bit more relaxed. Come to think of it I was driving fast and

Switching off the unawareness gene

Many who have known me for several years often ask me, How have you chosen the path of Meditation? I do not have a clear answer to this question.

Can the incessant conditioned thought activity in your head come to an end?

Truth, the so called reality which we have eluded for so long is simple. However our mind complicates it. It doesn't like anything simple.
