Transcript

Okay, so we'll start in the same way, just taking a couple of deep breaths. You don't have to, it's kind of nice to have a little mini introductory ritual, my startup practice kind of signaling the body, it's meditation time. So, for me, that's just been, take a deep breath, stretch up the spine, and then relax, soften the face, the belly. Now, some people practice this, they first deliberately work on concentrations, they do a concert on the breath for a bed, and then they kind of let go, but we're just gonna try going right into it. So the idea is that to really just slack out, do nothing, just sit here with your eyes closed or open and just let yourself the only intention really is just is not to try to control your attention in any way. So whatever happens is fine.

There's there can be an enjoyment quality or just sort of enjoying the being of your body sitting here and the mind may jump around, or it may come to a point and start paying attention to something that's okay if you're not just might spontaneously do what it does and just let it do what it does spontaneously. Don't try to like yank it around. That's the only real instruction. This is a pure practice of equanimity, of allowing everything to be here yourself. To be here, sounds feelings just nothing you need to do. Just really rest.

Give yourself this this time to sit here in your experience So this kind of a passive meditation is sometimes called being meditated. So let's say you're just letting nature meditate you kind of being brief Not trying to willfully control anything just might get a bit drifty and that's okay. If you find you're just wandered into thinking that's just what's happening by yourself, be exactly who you are right now. Mr Pearson Practice of being very simple. Sometimes the sense of awareness might expand or get stronger. Sometimes it's the opposite we get kind of Sleepy or drifty just letting it all happen.

Yourself have this break, not needing to control anything. So letting that go Do nothing meditation just being curious? That easy For you to do a little bit harder. You learn a lot about ourselves from every every practice. See, you're allowed to be here meditation great. You're ready Finish with a beautiful sound of the bell.

Questions about that one? Any comments? reports? Anyone like it? Yeah. I like that one.

Anyone not like it drifty or just they just end up daydreaming. Yeah. So that's one of the perils of the do nothing practices that can lead to very drifty daydreaming or, but the idea really is just to kind of unclench the part of you that always thinks it needs to be managing and controlling everything and just let things be. Let's Not easy to do.
