      > Yo Bill,
      > Welcome! There is a technique for counting that doesn't involve
      > thinking, and can even be done by people who can't count up to 12.
      > What you do is to use your thumb (on either hand), to touch the
      inner
      > base of your little finger (where it joins the palm), then to touch
      > the first/lower inner joint of your little finger, and then to
      touch
      > the upper inner joint of your little finger. You would then
      continue
      > to do this with your fourth finger, third, and second/index finger.
      > This would be a cycle of 12. With your other hand, you would then
      put
      > your thumb against the inner base of your little finger, then after
      > another cycle of 12, you would place that thumb on the inner lower
      > joint of the little finger. And after the next cycle of 12, against
      > the inner top joint of the little finger. This would complete 3
      cycles
      > of 12. If you wanted to continue to do 12 cycles of 12, you would
      just
      > continue using the thumb to touch the base, lower, and upper inner
      > joints of the 4 fingers of that hand. So, with Soham, you would
      > inhale, exhale, and then touch the base of the little finger on one
      > hand with your thumb; inhale, exhale, and touch the lower joint of
      the
      > little finger; inhale, exhale, and touch the top inner joint of the
      > little finger. Then you would continue with the other 3 fingers of
      > that hand, and then initiate the touching of the base of the little
      > finger of the opposite hand with that thumb, and so on, and so on.
