Yet we also notice that “something” — we can call it awareness, consciousness, or bare attention — remains throughout it all.

From “The Deep Heart”

“Meditation, at least in the form that I am discussing, is a conscious resting in awareness as awareness.

Rest as you are, not trying to change anything.

Let your thoughts, feelings, and sensations simply be.

There is no one trying to reach a particular state or make something happen.

There is just a noticing that all experiences come and go — thoughts (unspoken words, images, plans, and memories) as well as sensations inside and outside the body, some of which we call feelings.

Yet we also notice that “something” — we can call it awareness, consciousness, or bare attention — remains throughout it all.

As we notice this unchanging background, we open and relax into it.

At some point we realize that this open, wakeful, boundless awareness is who we really are.”

  7. Start out slow

    Eyes open trace the breathing track, notice the transitions

    The breath is like a sheet of music

    Intake, pause, exhale, pause

    Trace it with eyes open with your finger

    Then with eyes closed

    Start out with five breaths and work up to ten

    U can do it anywhere anytime

  8. We journey together

    Remember you are doing nothing, influencing nothing

    We are observing, seeing thoughts arrive, stay a while, then leave

    Practice practice practice

    Enjoy it
