You see, the highest Contentment, attained through dropping all thought ofsameness or difference, is being Content with not being content all thetime. We can experience a deep, abiding Contentment … fully present even with daily pains and sometime discontent.
The best way to be”at home in” and “at one with” life is by always being at home …lacking all thought of somewhere else to go … even when life takes usplaces where we do not want to go. Drop allresistance to sometimes resisting (sometimes not resisting) … andthat is Deep Liberation.
To hope for one’s experience onthe Zafu to always be a joyful, blissful, happy time is … in our view… not the Highest Samadhi. To favor only the blissful moments, and to rejectthe bored or painful moments is (in our view) not Enlightenment … forEnlightenment is to understand the Bliss that is sometimes beingamused, sometimes bored … for that is wonderful life, no place otherto be (or where you should be).
Thosemeditators who seek only bliss states, only joy, only peace as “right”meditation … not only miss the complexity of this wonderous life, butoverlook that Joy and Peace beyond some mere joy and peace.
