For this week’s meditation, we turn to Dogen (founder of the Soto school of Zen Buddhism), who wrote:
The human mind has absolute freedom as its true nature. There are thousands upon thousands of students who have practiced meditation and obtained this realization. Do not doubt the possibilities because of the simplicity of this method.
During the coming week, while you’re meditating, breathe in absolute freedom and breathe out true nature.
Do not think or conceptualize about absolute freedom and true nature while you’re sitting and breathing.
Simply breathe in absolute freedom and breathe out true nature.
