As I see most of you are in your thirty’s, forty’s and fifty’s. You have done and experienced quite a lot in your life, you have had your own successes and disappointments. Now, I think you are ready for something better. In fact you have been doing this for quite a while, developing your inner qualities and spiritual nature. As today is our first day it is going to be an introduction.
Before we really meditate we need to prepare ourselves.
Whenever we want to do something we need to be prepared,
this is very important. It is something I learnt a long time ago,
and I teach this to my friends and students: be prepared. If you really prepare for what you are going to do it is really surprising how natural and easy it becomes. Just like a farmer or a gardener who wants to grow flowers or any crop, first of all he needs to prepare the land. Without doing this if he just goes and scatters the seeds, some of them might sprout but they won’t bear fruits, very soon they will die out. They cannot take root properly because there is not enough fertilizer, not enough nutrients for the plant and not enough water.
