This rock meditation is useful when you’re feeling too “in your head.” It has a calming, quieting effect when there is too much random, chaotic mind chatter. Also, guidance comes through easier if we do the rock meditation first. It has a healing power that makes it a good cure for many of our ills.
There is nothing simpler than this rock meditation. Find out how to do it:
A rock has no opinions. A rock has no sense of time or at least a very long sense of time. A rock is grounded. So there is groundedness. Rocks are heavy, peaceful, still.
The consciousness of a rock says, “None of these things move me.” A rock doesn’t care about the opinions of others. A rock is not concerned. A rock is carefree. Free of cares!
Can you look at your problems from the point of view of a rock? How would a rock deal with this situation? How would a rock deal with this person? A rock would make like a rock and just sit. A rock would be unmoved. Try it. This is the meditation: to make like a rock.
When we experience this, we discover that the consciousness of a rock is so blissful. This is because rocks are peaceful.
