YouTube video: Introduction to Insight Meditation in Daily Life (MIDL).
MIDL is a systematic way of practicing traditional Buddhist insight meditation (satipatthana vipassana) within your daily life, in a way that gradually teaches your mind to let go.
The name MIDL as an acronym for Mindfulness in Daily Life that points towards the middle balance, or ‘Middle Way’ (MIDL Way) as revealed by the Buddha (SN 56:11) in the Noble Eightfold Path, with the intention to develop harmony through skill in calm, wisdom & morality.
As an MIDL meditator you will learn to find the middle way by neither suppressing nor avoiding any experience, but rather softening/relaxing your relationship towards it to gently let it go.
MIDL meditators use the development of relaxation & calm during mindfulness of breathing, as a foundation for insight into anything that hinders their ability to experience relaxation & calm.
Insight into the by-itself-nature (anatta) of hinderances to calm, while rewarding your mind with the pleasure of letting go, will teach it to incline towards the pleasure of letting go in daily life.
Insight meditation practiced in this way lowers stress & anxiety, weakens attraction and aversion, and ends the cycle of self-created suffering in daily life.
