Gil Fronsdal leads a Guided Meditation Be Still & Gaze Upon Everything Kindly. Buddha represents being still, tranquil in body & mind, eyes gazing kindly.

The Buddha statue is kind of symbolic, a teaching in its own right. Exhibiting confidence without assertiveness. It represents being still, tranquil in body, tranquil in mind. They eyes are half-open and the idea is gazing upon the world with kindness as we know the Buddha is a kind and compassionate person. This summarizes the teaching: Be still and gaze upon everything kindly.

Be still, don't be frozen, don't hold yourself tight, relax into the stillness and tranquility, and gaze upon everything kindly, So whatever goes on whatever comes up it's a training not to be in conflict or beaversive or be critical of whatever that's happening.

And with that kind of attitude, we are kind of like beginner all the time, starting over again. Partly in meditation, we're constantly starting over.
