Good practice is simply sitting here - it is absolutely uneventful. From the usual point of view, it's boring. Over time, however, we learn in our bodies that what we used to call 'boring' is pure joy, and this joy is the source, the feeding ground, for our life and actions. Sometimes it is called samadhi; it is the very nonstate in which we should live our entire life (...). When we live in such nondual samadhi, we have no problems becasue there is nothing separate from us.
