“We could say that meditation doesn’t have a reason or doesn’t have a purpose. In this respect it’s unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don’t do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment”- Alan Watts
- Find a quite spot.
- Sit comfortably with blankets or even a chair.
- Close your eyes and find your breath.
- Allow your exhale to be twice as long as your inhale; use a natural breath between cycles.
- After a few cycles of breath work, just allow your breathing to be effortless.
- Imagine your favorite place to be and see it with your mind’s eye.
- Stay here for 3-5 minutes.
- Open your eyes and feel renewed and ready to face the day.
