|Magic Mushrooms: High potential for treating depression and anxiety (inverse.com)|
|Letting go is the way to meditation.|
Someone tells them, "They grow on the ground." They grab a basket and go walking in the countryside, expecting that mushrooms will be lining the roadside for them to pick.
But city folk only have the experience of seeing mushrooms on their plates. They hear mushrooms grow on the ground and get the idea that they should be easy to find. But it doesn’t work that way.
We get the idea that it will be easy. But when we sit, our legs hurt, our back hurts, and we feel tired, hot, and itchy.
Then we start to feel discouraged, thinking that samādhi is as far from us as the sky is from the earth.
We don’t know what to do, and we become overwhelmed by difficulties. But if we can receive some training, it will get easier, little by little.
