Most people think Mindfulness/Meditation is very difficult, hard, mundane, maybe to simple to contain that kind of power!

  
*
*
*
How do I say this humbly? The Breathing track, my model was developed to make Meditation/Mindfulness much easier, quicker.
*
*
It works!
*
*
It is a combination of traditional Buddhist meditation, modern neuroscience, actual application and use to heal from C-PTSD, and my attained skills, a professional athletes discipline, willpower.
*
*
It greatly reduces the places we get lost in thought, thus making it easier to empty the mind.
*
*
It is simple, immeditate,,concrete and bulletproof. It is conducive to repetitive performance.
*
*
We are not counting the breaths, engaging the cognitive side of the mind. We are trying to silence the cognitive side by focusing on the breath, not engage in numbers.
*
*
All the really good stuff happens when we start reaching a no thought stage, described as empty.
*
*
I have eliminated everything not essential from the meditation/mindfulness model. You can trace your breathe on the model with eyes open first then closed.
*
*
All the abstract is gone. When we close our eyes, it is simple, in proportion and flows like a slow melody.
*
*
The mind is far more flexible, pliable, able to change quickly with mindful living.
*
*
We get lost in thought after the inhale and after the exhale, the pauses.
*
*
The Breathing Track eliminates this issue by being a continuum. All is connected and in proportion.
*
*
Ten minutes a day can make miraculous change in due time.

Just adverse or favourable!

“The basic root
*
*
of happiness
*
*
lies in our minds;
*
*
outer circumstances
*
*
are nothing
*
*
more than
*
*
adverse
*
*
or favourable.”

*
*
– Matthieu Ricard –
*
*
*
Judgment carries very little weight with the Buddhists.
.
.
Oh, by the way, they experience much more happiness, peace of mind and calm than we do.

Friend or Foe?

  

*
*
*
“You may find the worst enemy or best friend in yourself.”

*
*
– English Proverb –
*
*
*
Sit today and find the perfect you, your best friend.
*
*
Judge life and find the worst enemy.
*
*
*

Who Am “I”?

  

*
*
*
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
*
*
– Lao Tzu
*
*
*
*
Come back to now, let go, free yourself for a change.
*
*
Build your focus quietly exploring the inner world.
*

To heal, to change a life long habit like childhood abuse (C-PTSD), we need a skill that is?

*
*
*
The mind can change old emotional habit with a skill that is immediate, concrete, simple, and bulletproof.
*
*
Immediate: at the Zen center, the goal was to be awakened in a couple of decades. The mind can not act on this abstract in the distant future event. Change comes when our task is immediate, now.
*
*
Concrete: The mind does not alter its bias with abstract thought. The mind will only move with real, concrete tasks, like my model, the breathing track.
*
*
Simple: Anything complex will fold under the adrenal stress response (the fight, flight or freeze mechanism). It must be simple and repeatable under highly stressful triggers erupting.
*
*
Bulletproof: The focus we build must endure our greatest emotional triggers exploding. When fear storms into our nervous system, is our focus strong enough to resist avoiding, running.
*
*
Again, immediate, concrete, simple and bulletproof.
*
*
Practice today.
*
*
*

Mindfulness recognizes irrational fear and refuses to give attention to it!

  
*
*
*
When I stopped reacting to emotionally charged triggers exploding, healing came quickly.
*
*
Observing my scary thoughts from a distance, not avoiding, not running, started a new relationship with myself.
*
*
Fear itself became familiar, then friendly,,then we merged as one, mind and body.
*
*
My fear mechanism (adrenal stress response) was benign, without intent or ill will.
*
*
Fear was not an evil demon, a nasty entity to be scared of.
*
*
It was just a body mechanism tasked with my defence.
*
*
Without the storylines of trauma, fear turned from angry lion to a friendly domestic pet.
*
*
Irrational fear had lost its ability to scare me, to force me to avoid, to rule my being.
*
*
Sit today, focused, aware and let go of your fear.
*
*
*

Mindfulness: where we become friends with our nervous system, our fear, our anxiety

  

*
*
*
Want to heal from Ptsd, then become friends with your fear mechanism and trauma will fade.
*
*
Mindfulness is a focus exercise of self discovery.
*
*
We focus until the ego fades, then we explore our inner world.
*
*
Fear ceases to be scary.
.
.
Avoiding our own body mechanisms becomes a moot point.
*
*
Life shifts, expands in the crystal clear moment of now.
*
*
Doubt, worry and fear become fleeting emotions of little sustenance.
*
*
We can actually learn to use fear and doubt to pursue healing and happiness.
