Returning to Intimacy


Return to the one that is not touched by the circumstances of the world. The one that lives in this world but not of this world. Drop the meditator, drop the form and just sit without any rigid model. There is no reconnection or creation of an experience or paradigm, it’s ordinary and easy to do.

  • Just sit
  • Don’t try to do anything
  • Accept, accept , accept
  • Be compassionate with the mind noises
  • Invite them in for tea and cake
  • Don’t try to create a quiet mind
  • Don’t try to let go
  • Don’t try to do it right
  • Be breathed
  • No special tools required
  • No special words or prayers needed
  • Just be you.

A stillness practice does not need to be another task or your list, just sit and be there with what is and don’t resist whatever comes up. Just embrace all arising phenomenon as it is and sit with what is. You are not here to accomplish anything or get anything right,  just be and remember all thought is just thought and all pain  is arising phenomenon. Breathe and accept. Breathe and be. Breathe and return to intimacy.

  1. Wow Robert! I can’t wait to put this into practice and just being with what is..
    Thank you!

  2. Thanks for this Robert! I just listened to this one and it comes at a good time. I haven’t been able to be consistent with meditation practice for a long time. And just last week I was thinking about just sitting and listening to a ‘meditation’ CD which is mainly nature sounds or wind chimes.
