Meditation Monday: Awake Forever

Sutra: All things arise and pass away. But the awakened awake forever. ~The Dhammapada of Gautama the Buddha, CA 500BC~

Become aware, awake. Then you will see that everything comes and goes, all things come and pass. Life is a flux. Your consciousness is the only thing that is immovable, that is eternal.

To attain it is freedom.

To attain it is the goal of life. If you miss it you have missed your life and you have missed a tremendously great gift, a great opportunity.

Very thoughtful and thought-provoking post. It was a bit hard to read being grey text on a black background. My poor eyes lol.

I love your meditation posts. I know you've recommended books before, but could you maybe give us a refresher list? I've got to check out what you're checking out. :)
