THE WATERFALL OF PEACE

We often say that meditation practice is about the development of peace. By peace, we mean the experience of being precisely on the dot, which cools down the jumpiness of our minds and the heat of our emotional neurosis. Experiencing this precision is analogous to sitting under a waterfall and letting a cool mountain stream pour onto us, washing away our dirt and sweat. We need to take this shower and relate with the water pouring onto our body from head to toe. That is how we develop peace in meditation.
