When Meditating

When meditating:

sit still;
accept what is;
do not add to it;
let go;
learn.

Metaphorically:

drain the inner swamp.

Be pure consciousness, not a motivated organism.

This accords with the Yoga Sutras:

Yoga is control of thoughts.
Then, man abides in his real nature.
Otherwise, he remains identified with thoughts.
They are controlled by practice and nonattachment.

NOTE: "...accept what is..." inwardly, not politically. Do not accept:

economic austerity;
public spending cuts;
racism;
immigration controls;
anti-union laws;
wars;
pollution;
poverty.
