Meditation.

I have been meditating twice a day now for about a week and I have noticed a marked improvement in my ability to be mindful, relaxed and open to change. I find that these sessions are like "bookends" to my day. It has also helped the anxiety that sometimes comes up with my schizoaffective disdorder.

How wise are those who have gone before and blazed the path to ultimate peace to give us meditation so that we too many one day reach full and complete peace with existence.

What we have to learn, in both meditation and in life, is to be free of attachment to the good experiences, and free of aversion to the negative ones.
-Sogyal Rinpoche-

Meditation is not a way to enlightenment,
Nor is it a method of achieving anything at all.
It is peace itself.
It is the actualization of wisdom,
The ultimate truth of the oneness of all things.

-Dogen-

This is the best medicine for us.

Peace comes to us in each moment we are mindful of the present moment, which is generally perfect. Meditation helps bring this reality to our lives. In this moment we just accept ourselves and the moment we are in. In this there is a subtle bliss, Yes?

Buddhisattva:

I think the length and amount of meditation is less important then the quality of meditation. :)
