Sit with discomfort


It is a great honour to sit with discomfort,
for all the mysteries of the universe lie within.

As you sit with discomfort,
you also meet discomfort’s best friend–
the urge to escape that discomfort!

Is there enough room in you
for both discomfort and the urge to escape discomfort?

Of course – who you are is vast and
spacious enough to hold anything.

This is true meditation –
no longer resisting discomfort and
trying to escape to a future comfort,
but discovering the ever-present,
unconditional Comfort that you are,
the perfect calm in the midst of the storm.

Jeff Foster
