Don't Stop at Technique

Meditation techniques might get you to the door of direct experience, but genuine transformation depends on two things deeper and more profound than any technique: A heart-intention more profound than the impulses and motivations that typically choose and drive technique. And knowing in the body that is deeper and more intelligent than thought or reason. Intention is formed by recognizing, acknowledging, appreciating, and honoring genuine aspirations rather than obeying habitual impulses. Knowing comes from including all of one's senses rather than relying simply on conceptual knowledge and narrow logical structures. Don't let fascination or frustration with technique keep you from opening to and relying upon deeper and more profound intention and knowing.
