Meditation + Talk: The Deep Peace in Approaching Your Life as an Offering
March 28, 2024

When we approach life as an offering, we let go of the constant striving and struggling and we open to a deeper sense of peace, acceptance, and reverence for the gift of existence itself.

This week in the Wednesday weekly Meditation and Talk, I discuss finding deep peace and meaning by shifting one’s mindset to view life as an offering rather than a constant battle or pursuit of goals. Some key points I covered are:

  • We can aim to “offer” our life, rather than striving or struggling. This involves letting go of ego and embracing a sense of service and contribution.
  • In the meditation, I ask you to reflect on your life as a gift, to appreciate the good in your circumstances, and to feel a sense of gratitude and reverence for your existence.
  • In the talk, I share how this perspective can help reduce stress, anxiety, and the tendency to be overly self-critical. This is a more grounded, compassionate, and serene way of being.

I hope you find it helpful, and you are welcome to join my free Wednesday Meditations – which are open to everyone!

These teachings are offered freely, at no charge. 

And if you like, you may wish to participate in the age-old tradition of generosity through making an offering yourself – called “dāna” – to support Rick and the Wednesday Meditations. Generosity itself is a beautiful practice that opens and gladdens the heart, relaxes the contraction of “self,” and ripples out into the world to touch many people – and perhaps, eventually, even oneself.
