The day will come when you will understand that if you’re just present to your own body during meditation, you need do nothing more. The catch is that you must first realize that your previous efforts have just interfered with the meditative process, and that you’ve accomplished nothing for all that you’ve done. You must see that all these efforts may produce the sensation of someone who is accomplishing something and achieving some ideal as it concerns meditating. But they do not produce the actual state of meditation that is necessary for the transformation of your being.

The energy we are given each moment, when it is experienced in its wholeness, is enough unto itself. It doesn’t need anything outside of itself. True meditation can simply be seen as a moment in which it is enough to be what we are.
