Francis Lucille: Meditation is simple and easy

Meditation is simple and easy, like a fish swimming in water. If it is complicated, if it requires effort, it must be something else.

– Francis Lucille

And that goes for much of what we sometimes call meditation: (a) Training a more stable attention. Bringing attention to the breath, sensations, gently bringing it back. (b) Noticing that what’s here is already allowed. Noticing that identifications are already allowed. (c) A gentle curiosity, exploring the sense fields, how it is to meet and welcome what’s here, what it really is etc. It can all be simple, gentle and free of effort.
