A Guide to Compassionate Meditation

Like Any Skill, Devoting Time and Effort to Meditation --- Guided by A Sense of Compassion --- Improves and Enhances its Practice

Aligning Meditation With Identity and Purpose

When it comes to meditation, one of the most common misconceptions that people have concerning meditation practice is failing to set a definitive purpose. “Setting a purpose” may seem counterintuitive and limiting to the core of meditation. After all, aren’t we taught that we should simply become passive observers of our thoughts? 

The simple reason for that is human beings are highly complex creatures. As a species, we are capable of warping the destiny of an entire planet (arguably the destiny of other planets as well; depending on how you view space exploration). It probably goes without saying that byproducts of “human consciousness” are something that you should never underestimate. 

Once you become more adept at meditation, there comes a point when you must confront the complex nature of your thoughts during the meditation practice - whether positive and negative - and to come out as a better person after each and every session. To be able to do this, we must learn how to root our meditation practice with compassion

Giving is Interconnected With Receiving 

From an individual’s perspective, acts of compassion are usually defined or perceived as an outward action. Authentic deeds also cannot be separated from the notion that these actions must be wholly free of expecting any result in any form of personal gain. But why can’t we direct this sense of compassion towards ourselves during the meditation practice? 

Meditation is not a monotonous ordeal. During the practice, we must be prepared to go on an endless variety of tumult and chaos inside our own minds as much as we are prepared to find happiness and tranquility. When we begin from a place of compassion, we are allowing ourselves to come from a place of acceptance, forgiveness, and understanding. 

In this way, we are better prepared to accept our thoughts despite any sort of feelings we may have towards them. As a result, we are better able to discern “negative and positive” energies present in our thoughts and emotions. Once we begin to understand this, we can truly utilize our meditation practice to our spiritual benefit. 

Invite Compassion in Your Daily Living

Incorporating compassion into your daily practice is to allow both negativity and positivity to exist within your inner self. If you force yourself towards reaching a specific form of mental state, the only thing that you are actually managing to accomplish is distancing yourself from it. By being compassionate, you are better able to accept thoughts and emotions as they are rather than what you want them to be.

Permit yourself to be affected by thoughts and emotions that are uncomfortable for you. Through compassion, you are better able to welcome situations in life no matter how gloomy and anxious they make you feel. 

Remember that practicing compassion is the best way of befriending our inner selves instead of turning them into our own worst enemy.
