Lesson 4 – Dwelling in the Heart Cave
This week, Ram Dass gives a direct teaching on the concept of awareness – we might have a deep experience in meditation where all the thoughts go by and there is no chasing them – just pure awareness, out of time and space.
See meditation as a way of coming home to the quietness of the deepest part of your heart; the cave of silence, in which everything is heard, sensed; thoughts arise and pass away, but none of it tarnishes the pure silence of the inner heart cave. As each sensation arises, note it; each moment noting just where your awareness moves, not trying to bring it back to any place, letting it float from sense store to sense store, from thought to thought, but adding the awareness of the process of the movement all done as you sit quietly, tranquilly, cultivating equanimity in the middle of the heart cave.
Watch the weekly introduction with Ram Dass below before moving on to this week’s article, audio and practices.
WEEKLY QUOTE & RESOURCES
“Meditation is a very sweet art. You’ll find the primary object becomes like home, like a cave, and after a while you are content to stay just for the breath and give the awareness a rest from all of its wandering and jumping here and there. ” – Ram Dass

Segundo recurso: Ram Daas entendiendo la consciencia
Ram Dass gives a direct teaching on the concept of awareness – we might have a deep experience in meditation where all the thoughts go by and there is no chasing them – just pure awareness, out of time and space.
He compares this experience to being totally absorbed in a book and not hearing someone walking into the room. Your ears are hearing but your awareness is not attending to your ear’s hearing. So imagine your awareness being withdrawn from all the senses.
Eventually awareness is the flow of emptiness or detachment from any disturbing thoughts or emotions – just loving space.
Tercer recurso: Meditación Vipassana
Ram Dass leads a 28-minute Vipassana meditation on bringing our mind to one point through the breath. This process must be done gently, the mind must remain soft, subtle, buoying and light.
As your mind begins to concentrate, emotions will rise to the surface – greed, lust, doubt, anger, agitation… just notice them, don’t feed them or judge them – then gently return to the breath.
We keep the awareness gently riding on the breath, noting sensations rising and then passing away, like leaves floating down the stream.
Cuarto recurso: Om Namaha Shivaya
This week we are going to chant to Shiva. The whole process is one of purification. It deepens, quiets, and straightens our entire being. We are taking our emotional qualities and giving them the strength of steel, so our love can be quiet clear and strong. That way we go into the world with the strength of Shiva and the tenderness of Krishna, that’s what the balance is about.
Un consorte de Shiva es Shakti Kali que es el aspecto de la madre que danza sobre la muerte y que consume las impurezas, ofrecemos un fuego a Kali y le ofreces tus impuresas, y se le canta a Shiva te limpia, profundiza, silencia y fortaleze todo tu ser llega a la devoción desde la emoción y fortaleza el amor de Shiva es silencioso, profundo muy fuerte, la fuerza de Shiva y la ternura de Krishna eso significa el balance.
