Working with the mind is meditation. This course introduces you to four techniques of working directly with your mind. They are progressive meaning the first three should be done before the fourth, yet, they are interdependent. James guides you through a series of practices that introduces you to your mind’s nature. Once you recognize mind’s nature you can begin to rest in that nature. That is where it all happens, or, nothing happens. Recognition of mind’s nature is a direct path to liberation. Pretty much everything else is distraction. These techniques are for anyone. Traditional methods would have you read and study so that you cultivate the correct view before you use these techniques. Yet, in today’s fast pace busy world, the teachings are becoming more accessible and available. That being said, I encourage anyone who is on a path of meditation to study the philosophical teachings on the mind and phenomena. There are many texts that address these topics. The final talk dives in to how to bring meditation into everyday life. Ultimately, life must become the meditation and sitting on the cushion simply becomes another thing we think we need to do. Scheduling daily time to meditate is very important. Beginners should do this.
