For most of us, the phrase “sitting in meditation” refers to the practice of physically sitting still and and re-focusing our attention to the present moment. Living with the true Zen meaning of sitting in meditation, we effortlessly exist at inner peace while at rest and while in motion. Within the true state of sitting in mediation, we live within the life stream at full awareness and adaptively respond to the life circumstances with our Inner Light and an universal compassion.

All materialization in the natural world are the manifestation and derivation of the inherent duality of the physical universe. As citizen of the natural world, our physical form are governed by the dualistic forces of the universe. We exist within the limitations both of our physical body and of the physical universe. As we exist in the physical body, our perspective of the world is based on the our observation and experience within the physical world. Duality is the subjective state of mind, while the mind conscious assess the input from the world from an egocentric viewpoint.
