Journy as a goal

Find the right meditation for you...

In true meditation there is no goal no destination, nowhere we should go or be, nothing we should or want to achieve... there is only one-pointed awareness, there is only meditation... But with our goal-oriented Western mind this might be difficult at first.

To prepare ourselves for meditation, we might set our goal on the journey itself. The simplest way to illustrate “journey as a goal” is with a circle. The perimeter of the circle should represent our life path. We are currently at some point around this perimeter. Looking back, we probably feel that we have walked quite a bit, that we are wiser, that we understand life and its essence better ... If we are aware that this is just one of the stations, just one of the points and we do not identify with it, new knowledge does not become sacred truth to us and we do not fanatically defend it as the only possible truth, our life is full. We know that we are at a different point at any given moment, that no point on the perimeter of a circle is better than the other, after all, every end is also a beginning.
