faith

A few words to support your meditation practice…

An act of meditation is actually an act of faith—of faith in your spirit, in your own potential. Faith is the basis of meditation. Not of faith in something outside you—a metaphysical buddha, an unattainable ideal, or someone else’s words. The faith is in yourself, in your own ‘buddha nature.’ You too can be a buddha, an awakened being that lives and responds in a wise, creative, and compassionate way.
