Morning Meditation: Work with an empty mind.

‘Whether one’s a thinker, scientist, or whatever, all must work with an empty mind. If least hint of ego sneaks in, things fall apart.’

On our Twitter account, Buddhism Now @Buddhism_Now, most mornings we post a ‘morning meditation’ like the one above.

On the net, of course, it’s morning, afternoon, evening, or nighttime 😀 somewhere.

  1. It just occurred to me: if I practice metta for my own self, I can be filled from inside, I will not need to fill my ego from outside, from results of my actions. My self will already be fed and safe with kindness and love. Then I can do things that matter without my motives getting muddied from my unmet ego needs. Revelation! Thank you!
