Lesson 4

The way of Natural Meditation is:

 "mindfully and naturally to recall abstractly" 

A funny-sounding phrase, perhaps, but then, its acronym is: M.A.N.T.R.A.

bulletWe recall the mantra, rather than repeat it, sound it, think it, hammer it.
bulletWe recall the mantra abstractly rather than with sharp focus, clarity or rhythm, allowing the mind to become more abstract and subtle.
bulletWe do this mindfully because it rides on our intention to meditate. Even though we will forget and wander, we return to the mantra as soon as we recall our intention.
bulletWe do this naturally because we do not strive to make the meditation our own project; we let it be nature's.
