Meditation in motion
- A very unique form of meditation we do on our path from time to
time. As Sri Chinmoy drives a small electric three-wheeled scooter
or a mini-golf cart, we meditate. Tonight, as Sri Chinmoy drove
around the perimeter of a large auditorium, several hundred of his
students meditated. What is so beautiful about this meditation is
that it is very dynamic, yet it is meditation indeed. It enormously
helps my mind to have some motion to focus on, and yet that focus
draws in tremendous stillness and a feeling of inner peace. Plus, we
love seeing our teacher up close, and every two or three minutes he
cruises by, looking very high. Motion outside and stillness inside.
If you have never seen it, the only comparison I can think of is
meditating on a bird coasting on an updraft, or meditating on the
ocean with its surface wavy turmoil and its hidden, quiet vastness.
