Guided Meditation on No Preferences

Author

Carol Perry , March 2009

A guided meditation to bring insight into how we construct dissatisfaction and suffering.

Settle into your meditation posture and become aware of the body, so that you can observe the body responses when you hear the words.

I have no preference for talking over silence.

Stay with what happens in the body as you receive these words.

I have no preference for alert over dull.

Stay with what happens in the body as you receive these words.

I have no preference for happy over sad.

Stay with the body as you receive these words.

I have no preference for calm over restlessness.

Stay with what happens in the body as you receive these words.

I have no preference for doubt over certainty.

Stay with body as you receive these words.

I understand that the basis for dissatisfaction and suffering is a fixation on appearances.

I see that preferences are the condition of the self arising, for where there are preferences there is the self that holds the preference.

You can include any preferences that you a fixating upon as an exploration of dissatisfaction and suffering.
