Meditating with the breath.
This week, pause, quiet the mind and seek to peer through the mist and haze to see that very deep something about you, that helps you to become closer toward your intention.
Practice: Bring your attention to your belly, feeling it gently rise and expand on the inbreath and fall and release on the outbreath.
Keep your focus centered in the breathing, "being with" each inbreath for its full duration and with each outbreath for its full duration, as if you were riding the waves of your own breathing.
Every time you notice that your mind has wandered off the breath, simply notice and then gently bring your attention back to your belly and the feeling of the breath coming in and out.
If your mind wanders away from the breath a hundred times, then your "job" is simply to bring it back to the breath every time, no matter what it becomes preoccupied with.
