Sit as comfortably as you can in a posture
that will not easily lead to falling asleep.
Witness every part of your body, and if any
unneeded muscle use is observed, command
those body parts to relax. Take a few slow
deep breaths and with as much attention and
with as little inner chattering as possible,
follow the breath in and out. Keep doing
this for as long as you can without getting
emotional or tense. Witnessing any mood or
body changes, command "Calm down, relax".
If there is any inner commentary, let it be
objective and brief. I.E. "Breathing in
breathing out". Continue feeling the breath,
witnessing the process silently. Maintain this
alertness when you cease the exercise and
arise. Attend to your attention standing,
laying down, sitting, wherever and whenever you breathe.
Witness the witnessing attentively. This is
done with the long sought after outwardly but
always available within Real Self. Say hello
to your uninhibited and unlimited awareness as
it flows within and without you.
Like many meditation techniques, these words
and suggested activities mean nothing until
experienced in your life and not just delegated
to being a minutes worth of reading. It is only
when applied that their potential to keep you
awake and fully alive will be validated.
