Joy Is Your Second Nature
Meditate more and more deeply, until calmness and joy become second
nature to you. It is thinking that it is difficult that holds you apart from it. Never
think of joy as distant from you, and it will be with you always.
The key to meditation is simply to meditate every day, to use those techniques like following the breath that still the mind, and to lengthen our time of meditation as the weeks and months go by. One day we fall into a well of joy that is our own true nature and we begin to share this inner joy with all those around us.
