I can speak to effortless meditation from experience. I would prefer to call it “just being”, but same thing. 🙂
My practice has become much more effortless. Still not easy, still a laborious journey, but just being is quite a joy. 🙂

True meditation is not a practice. It is being—just being. It is being without the movement of becoming. It is Awareness. Just stop and look, just be, without the effort of thinking and without the effort of becoming—this is true meditation. It doesn’t happen when we sit and “meditate.” It is a natural and easy state of being.
True meditation is natural being. The power is in its simplicity. We are so habituated to doing something, becoming something, lurching for the next moment, that in the beginning True meditation may take time to settle, just like a shaken-up mixture of sand and water settles.
