While you're here... we've included snippet from a recent edition of our "Meditation Weekly" newsletter with Jay Michaelson.
We are approaching the longest nights of the year. These are the days when human bodies tend to slow down, to add more weight for the winter, to sleep. And, not coincidentally, these are the days in which cultures around the world celebrate light: first Diwali, then Chanukah, then Christmas. And other festivals as well.
For many people, the good cheer and family time of the holiday season ease the burden of darkness. Yet for many others, the holiday season is the most difficult of the year, and the relentless major-key music and myths of family harmony only worsen the natural ebbs of December. Many people are at their loneliest and most despondent precisely when our culture acts as though everyone is warm, partnered, and together.
Personally, I love a lot about the winter that has nothing to do with presents from friends or the presence of loved ones. I love the steam rising from laundry vents, the indoor smells of incense and firewood, the warmth of thick stew. I even love, sometimes, the alterations in my mood: more solitude, more loneliness, more melancholy. They go together, the winter outside and the winter of the heart. There is a song of winter, but for me, it is composed in minor keys more than major ones.
Not surprisingly, these movements of winter parallel those of contemplative practice.
First, there is a subtle joy that emerges simply from yielding; from letting go the urge to be happy in a certain way, to celebrate the season in a certain way. This is familiar from meditation: as soon as I stop trying to relax, I can relax. As soon as I stop trying to feel joy, I can feel joy. The primary obstacle to happiness is the relentless search for happiness.
You can feel this somatically in meditation. There’s often a straining or tensing of muscles when there’s a straining to feel a certain way. Quickly the search for happiness turns, like TV commercials in December, into its opposite. When I let my feelings be what they are, there’s a joy in releasing that resistance.
Second, I find a joy in the transparency of truth – or, if you prefer, of non-denial. Sylvia Boorstein, whose teachings I quote often perhaps because she is so good at pithy phrases, often talks about phrases like “it’s not what I wanted, but it’s what I got.” This can sound like wallowing in self-pity, but in fact it’s the opposite: it’s the courage, and the joy, of being truthful with experience. I may have wanted something else, but, as the cliché goes, it is what it is. I can “be with my experience,” as long time meditators often say, without BS’ing myself about what that experience is. That feels great...

This app never fails to improve my life and my mood.
After several tries with apps... Headspace (which granted helped me) Calm (Nice running water sounds to sleep too) Breethe (I don’t even remember) I found 10% happier... for skeptics. I am not a skeptic... but the way Dan approaches meditation... makes me laugh. I LOVE the genuineness of him... and through him, he has found all these teachers that are real. No frills... no fake calming voices or stories... real meditation teachers with lifetimes behind them of wisdom. And Dan... I admire him so much... because on a spiritual level... he is being a REAL REPORTER. The way reporters are supposed to report... not on an agenda, but on something so worthwhile to the human family... and he genuinely loves and investigates this... and through him I/we learn... and what a service.
In just a few weeks I have noticed a difference in my brain. Less reactive. More able to just notice moments... in short... I’m happier. I love doing a meditation 3 times a day. I’m not saying this is my only reason for being happier. But its probably just 10% of my total happier state lately. Worth the money? Yes. It was worth it from the first moment when Joseph Goldstein changed my life and mind in his interviews. Very thankful and impressed with the content and genuineness. It makes me laugh... and learn... and be calm and stable.
Find the time to listen to yourself. It’s worth it.
After 1 week, I am sold. Simply taking a few minutes out of my day to reflect and focus my thoughts has made for an interesting experience. When I first started, I couldn’t see past the restlessness I felt inside; I found myself focusing too deeply on the back and forth rocking sensation I felt as my heart beat, and was surprised by how much motion was still occurring beyond my control as I intentionally attempted to be still and clear my mind. Today, I am finding myself more aware of many other sensations going on inside me — the rocking motion, I can still feel but only as I focus my awareness on my heart beating instead of my nostrils flaring or my wandering thoughts. I’ve been so impressed with meditation, I’ve convinced my wife to give it a try as well, and now we both plan time before bed to be guided through the basics of meditation. Now she’s hooked as well! I know this is only the beginning, but I’m very excited to see where this leads. If I can feel this way after only a week, I can only assume the benefits of making it a regular practice. So very glad I was introduced to this app, and I highly recommended it!
