Then it becomes a Happening rather than a Doing.... That is how I also Meditate 99% of the time as it works for me

My teacher once said to me, "You're an experienced meditator. Meditate and all will be revealed". As you duly noted, "it becomes a happening rather than a doing".....and the happening can either take place during meditation or in pursuing apparently outward worldly pursuits.

An interesting quote. In his younger days Ramana Maharshi spent many years in meditation. And back in my twenties I would often sit in meditation for several days at a time. But then the responsibilities of life took over and I seldom sat for more than an hour. Perhaps my lessons in life lay elsewhere, although my meditation has continued over the years. But now, as a retired fellow approaching 60 I feel drawn to immersing myself back in meditation and once more embracing the Yogi within me.

Peace.
