natural point of rest between the rising and falling, when the
abdomen has contracted and there is a slight sense of tension around
the navel before the next breath comes. I find that's a helpful
point to note. I note rising - falling -rest- rising- falling -rest.
It's also interesting to note how the next breath starts without any
control on my part - it just happens - anatta. But I have never
heard this point of rest between in and out breath mentionned as a
possible object of attention so I think I am off-mark.
I am happy to wait for any feedback, very grateful for the
opportunity to be in touch with venerable monks.
