Jon Kabat-Zinn’s “Full Catastrophe Living”: Non-Striving

“Although it takes a lot of work and energy of a certain kind, ultimately meditation is a non-doing, It has no goal other than for you to be yourself. The irony is that you are already are, this sounds paradoxical and a little crazy, Yet this paradox and craziness may be pointing you toward a new way of seeing yourself, one in which you are trying less and being more, This comes from intentionally cultivating the attitude of non striving.

Remember we are simply allowing anything and everything that we experience from moment to moment to be here, because it already is. The invitation is to simply embrace it and hold it in awareness. You do not have anything with it.”
