Seeing Clearly

From Wikipedia: Dzogchen or “Great Perfection“, Sanskrit: अतियोग, is a tradition of teachings in Tibetan Buddhism aimed at discovering and continuing in the natural primordial state of being.

The teachings are rather “deep” but Wikipedia has a very nice explanation. In a nutshell, my point is that in meditation, we can find our natural state, or “ground,” which brings us purity, clarity and compassion.  This state can be fleeting or can be longer. If we practice meditation consistently, we can achieve clarity when we need it. When you have clarity, you will have compassion, and purity. This is how you an d the people around you feel peace.

Practice just being. I love to meditate in a moving practice like yoga or a walking meditation. You can meditate while washing dishes or cleaning house. Sitting is good. Try these:
