Intention of seeing clearly 

meditation

When I was practicing with Andy P.(on the app lol), he would sometimes ask to set an intention. I watched so many anime growing up, usually things come up to me in cartoon ways. Every time for me then it was Princess Mononoke…

“To see with eyes unclouded by hate”
曇りなきまなこで定める。

They translation gets very particular about the hate but basically seeing clearly with unclouded eyes. So that was my intention for a long time, still is.  It is very helpful for me to have any simple humane intentions for meditation practice. Usually after settling in the posture, I briefly ask myself or remind myself why I practice. Especially when I do that in the morning, the intention of the practice seep into the day and carries on.
