Here is what meditation means to me...I don't know squat. Seriously. Meditation affords me the luxury of stepping out of knowing anything, or believing anything.
I sit, I set the timer, and I consciously decide to sit for the next pre-determined minutes in "I don't know." Wide open, clean slate, dumb as a doorknob.
A member of my 12 step family asked if I would teach her to meditate. I was thrilled and said sure and let's see if any other of our group members want to join. Today was the first day of a 4 week mini-course, and guess who is the most inspired? Moi!
I get so, so tired of knowing everything! What a relief it is to remember I don't know squat.
