I am currently reading Running with the Mind of Meditation by Sakyong Mipham. It is a fascinating and gentle introduction to both running and mediation.
Now I’ve been running for a bit and I have the basics of that down but a simple refresher is always welcome. In terms of mediation, I have tried it a few times and been mostly successful. Probably as successful as I was the first time I tried running (remember those walk runs).
I am really enjoying the simple straightforward language in this text and I find it is perhaps best described as “simple but not easy”. Sound familiar?
As much as I am enjoying it and am inspired by it to seriously give meditation a go I know I will need more than once through to really get the concepts shared here. therefore I am giving it a once through and then I will come back and treat it as a textbook and take notes on the instructions given.
Check it out when you get the chance. It has a lot to say.
