Meditation is both an experience of being who we really are, as well as the practice that invites us to be in this state. No one practice is more effective or important than another. Whatever the form, it is simply finding that which works for each of us. It may be a combination of them all or it may just be sitting with whatever presents itself. Anything we do with awareness is meditation, as awareness–or mindfulness–leads to the experience of radiant awakening. It is being fully present with what is. It is the freedom to be ok with whatever arises in the mind, and to be completely ourselves. In the process we become the oyster transforming our reality.
