Day 11:: I Want Nothing

Orange Leaves Day 11

There are three acknowledgements that govern the practice of meditation: (1) I want nothing, (2) I am nothing, and (3) I do nothing.  What does it mean to want nothing?

To want nothing is to desire nothing. To desire nothing is to have no expectations. To have no expectations is to not seek any form of satisfaction from another person or thing.

If you free yourself from expectation of what something or someone must do or give to you, you free yourself to enjoy and appreciate just being.

In just being, you open yourself up to receive all that is positive.

You become one with everything and everyone — and in becoming one — you become whole and complete.

You recognize your muchness.

You are enough.

No disappointment. No assumption. No dissatisfaction. No frustration. No annoyance.

Want nothing = receive everything

“Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious.” — 1 Peter 3:3-4

God will give you all that you need. He alone will satisfy you. All He wants of you is a “gentle and quiet spirit.”
