The Basics of Meditation 23mar23



Our central nervous system

has evolved in such a manner

that we take enormous pleasure

in the things most necessary for our survival. .

.

.

Buddha inferred that meditation

could increase

our energy, joy, and peace.

.

.

.

And yes, there are MANY ways

of practicing meditation,

BUT if it is not pleasurable

then it becomes an embittering chore.

.

.

.

Find a comfortable way

to sustainably sit tall and erect,

cross legged upon the floor.

.

.

.

Folded yoga blankets

and meditation cushions

can be helpful.

.

.

.

There are many

sitting positions.

.

.

.

When your legs

grow weary of one variation,

switch to another.

.

.

.

.

.

.

Marry the mental recitation

of the following slogans

with your respective

inhalations and exhalations.

.

.

.

Your PRIMARY slogans

are “Grin to gut…”

and “Form re-lax!”

.

.

.

The GRIN is a subtle,

Mona Lisa smile,

GUT refers

to your lower abdomen,

.

.

.

FORM is a synonym

for body, and RE-LAX is hyphenated

to aid with the rhythm

of mental recitation.

.

.

.

When you feel yourself slouching

play with the slogans

Sit-ting tall…”

and “Mind re-lease!

.

.

.

Thanks to our

autonomic nervous system

there are NO distractions

.

.

.

for we are wired

to notice and release

in harmony with our respective

inhalations and exhalations.

.

.

.

Start out with five minute sessions

every twelve hours or so.

.

.

.

If every week

you add another five minutes

then within twelve weeks

you could meditate like a Jedi. _/\_
