“The path I have followed has been dangerous”

“The path I have followed has been dangerous, destabilizing more than calm, excruciating more than pleasant, and hard to integrate (into ‘normal’ everyday life). It has also been profound, amazing, and glorious. Surfing the ragged edges of reality has been easier than slowing the thing down.”

~ A quote from the book, Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha, by Daniel Ingram.

Meditation as a sport

I may not be a Buddhist -- I have a real problem with the word “suffering” at the very least -- I enjoy reading texts to learn how to meditate better. Last year I read this stuff on “treating meditation as a sport or game”, and it made a difference in my practice. It comes from a book named, Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha. (If you don’t want to buy the book, the author has made the PDF freely available.)
