Raw, adjective: 11. unprocessed or unevaluated: raw data.

Sthira-sukham asanam (YS II:46):
The connection to the earth should be
steady and joyful.

sthira = steady, stable, motionless
sukham = comfortable, easy, "sweet space"
asanam = meditation posture (from the root ~as, which means "to sit")

Find a comfortable seat, ground yourself, soften, breathe, release your jaw. Spend five minutes in that comfortable seat reading Sogyal Rinpoche's beautiful piece on The Stability of Ease, from the ever awake-in-the-world Tricycle Magazine.

Ahhh. Much better.
