Mindset before meditating::

Trust we are exactly where we should be, in the exact situation that faces us today, no need to fix, correct or alter anything, just accept everything.

Can we tolerate accepting our weaknesses, flaws and unworthiness without trying to hide or deny them?

That means we do not have to accomplish or overcome anything or anyone.

We do not have to change anything for the next half hour, then we can go back to chasing pleasure.

That means our cognitive engine can rest for little while, thinking can rest, like a fast for the mind.

Now, we slow the breath and heighten our listening skill, searching for the tiniest sound.

Basic focus on the breath, meditation is simple.

What to look for on our journey.

Know Inhaling requires energy to expand the chest cavity, inflating the lungs like a balloon.

Exhaling requires less energy to release the carbon dioxide.

The pauses find the body at rest, no energy used, no movement.

This special calm I call suspended animation.

The perfect time to feel our inner world, anxiety, fear, tenseness, spasms, hot or cold sensations, etc.

Focus can expand during these calm pauses.

With each breath more pauses are available to deepen our journey.

The body is making no noise, exerting no effort during the two pauses.

Experienced meditators say these pauses can expand and help drop us below consciousness.

Our goal is to reach the left hemisphere, a place where words, dialogue, good and back or right or wrong do not exist.

The only time that is known is this present moment, the past and future do not exist here either.

Start small, simple and specific.

Master one breath while increasing our focus on the pauses.

Happy meditating.
