I Reject Meditation - A Manifesto

Your goals are broad and focused, simple and complex. They are not either/or goals. We are not striving for an either/or kind of life...it is an *everything* life, "large hearted" as so well taught and lived by the simple monk in your post. Mindful/inclusive/aware of the now...

As someone who also struggles towards these goals and with these ideas of life, I think we must try to avoid ideas of rejection, not to allow that habit to form. To remain flexible in mind. When we reject, what is potentially discarded or walled away? What is to be gained by rejection? It can not lead to empathy (understanding) or compassion (empathy + wisdom).

Accept. Accept. Can I argue that your meditation/mindfulness practice has brought you to write this post? Has it not inextricable and irreversibly changed you already? Rewired your brain, changed the neuronal connections that make you...

To reject something that has changed you already. Is to reject a part of yourself. How can one be whole? How can we be fully aware if we keep cutting out or trying to hide pieces of ourselves?
Accept. Subsume. It is all (already) in you.

True. True.
