The Dharma Lives in You

Erin Treat

So much of the time we're meditating with a corrective mindset…the feeling that somehow what you're doing or experiencing is wrong. But this path isn't about correcting. Correcting is samsara, because there really are no obstacles. The obstacles are the fodder through which we really wake up. How are you developing a deeper way of being? Because that's what we're doing here, we're developing a capacity to be with our experience. The real power of mindful awareness is this capacity to be with anything in such a way that we can awaken through it.
