By way of commentary: Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, en høyt aktet lærer i den tibetanske dzogchen-tradisjonen, skriver: "The highest, most eminent form of practice, is called the great meditation of nonmeditation. This practice is not a religion or a philosophy. It is not something new that was created by the Buddha. It is the original state - how our nature is already from the beginning."("Recognizing our natural state" i McLeod, Melvin (red). The Best Buddhist Writing 2005. Boston: Shambhala) Gir dette et relevant perspektiv på Kabat-Zinns uttalelse? Den (ikke-)meditasjon det er å gjenkjenne sin "naturlige tilstand" har i følge Nyima Rinpoche ingenting å gjøre med buddhismen. Slik Løgstrup insisterer på at hans etikk er "ontologisk" og ikke spesifikt kristen, slik sier Nyima at den høyeste form for meditasjon ikke er spesifikt buddhistisk.
"It’s easy to grasp for it, isn’t it? 'Where is it? What is it? I want to understand it. I want to know about it. How can it work for me? How can I utilize it?' But it doesn’t come upon us through the grasping of it, through the striving for it, and through the struggling for it. There’s no merit gained through wasted effort, through excess struggle. There are no merit points for the people who drove themselves the craziest along the way to self-realization. For most people it’s so obscure that it seems very intuitive to grasp and to struggle instead of relaxing, not grasping, letting something come to you, letting the truth of your being reveal itself to you on its terms, in its way, letting it happen. It will happen. It’s always happening. It’s always trying to show itself." ~Adyashanti Takk for en fin blogg :-)
