026 The Essence of Meditation Part 2: Accepting the Subtraction

Whatever your challenges, awareness is usually what you need to surmount them. And meditation is one of the primary tools to develop awareness. However, meditation is widely misunderstood and sometimes tragically misused. This episode is part two of the series on meditation. In the last episode we showed how subtraction is the governing dynamic of awareness. What are the implications of this? What can we do with the discomfort related to practicing skills and the losses related to awareness. Today we go on to examine the implication of how hooked we all are on the more comfortable knowledge and skill acquisition, and how we avoid awareness. The result is that, in the name of comfort, we self-sabotage in the most profound and fundamental way possible.
