Meditation Retreat Journal Entry #8

May 2, 2009

Insight from meditation:

Passivity is death.

 I’ve gotten so used to being passive in life that I hardly notice it. I’m almost always waiting for things to happen to me.

What about my own commitment to making something happen?

Will any thing ever happen if I’m passive about it?

Passivity is the enemy.

               Passivity is the ego.

                              Passivity is waiting to die.

When I really make effort to follow the instructions something starts to happen. Depth appears out of nowhere and the heavy sleepiness disappears.

Why not be free, why not?
