Be a lotus flower. In the East, the lotus flower symbolizes the essence of sannyas. It grows in the dirty mud. It doesn’t try to escape, it remains there. Lotus flower floats in the lake in the water, but there’s a beauty, a tremendous phenomenon: it’s in the water but the water never touches it. Its petals are so velvety and collect dewdrops overnight like shining pearls while remains dry and separates from the water.

That ‘s the way of a true sannyasin- being in the world, but remaining untouched, unaffected by it. When meditation happens, and this is what I call meditation-being in the world and remaining untouched-love comes as a byproduct.

Good morning sweetie. The beauty of meditation is you don’t need anything. You just are in a relaxed state of consciousness. I do breath work. You take deep breath in n out. For starter, a quiet place would be great for you ❤️

Awee bundles of joy 😻😻😻 that’s okay just focus on your breathing, one breath at a time. For starting u can count 4 deep breath in and 7 out, later it’s just automatic once you’re used to it 🤗❤️

in reply to GreatMindfulness
