Sit in deep emptiness for awhile.
In this state you have diminished the self
to such a degree
that you are in complete harmony with all that surrounds you.
There is no more a sense of a you,
Now bring your attention
to the dysfunctions of the mind.
and for each, imagine them as ever larger iron cages surrounding your heart centre.
Each time you add a cage resonate back and forth between a state of emptiness and being surrounded and attached to an ever increasing number of iron cages.
Begin with your attachment to likes and dislikes.
Imagine them as an iron cage and then return to that emptiness, then return again
Now add, your strong fears, phobias and worries as yet another layer of cage.
Imagine both cages and resonate back and forth between emptiness and being caged by the mind.
Now add, beliefs on how things or people or the self should be or appear to others.
Yet another cage.
And continue to resonate between emptiness and a caged self.
Now add the perceptions and beliefs of right and wrong, good and evil as yet another cage surrounding the self.
And continue to resonate between emptiness and the caged self.
Now add the cage of judgement against another and self righteousness.
We all accumulate and have different cages that we clothe ourselves with.
Know your self and recognize your own cages and bring them into this meditation.
Place all of your intention and attention on the return.
Each time you return to the emptiness,
repeat, “I am home”
