Start where you Are

«SHAMATHA VIPASHYANA MEDITATION:

In shamatha-vipashyana

In shamatha-vipashyana meditation, we sit upright with legs crossed and eyes open, hands resting on our thighs. It requires precision to be right there with that breath. It’s extremely relaxed and soft. “Be right there with the breath as it goes out” is the same thing as saying “be fully present”. Be right here with whatever is going on. Being aware of the breath as it goes out, we may also be aware of other things going on: sounds on the street, the light on the alls. These things may capture our attention slightly, but they don’t need to draw us off. We can continue to sit right here, aware of the breathing going out.

Only about 25% of the awareness is on the breath. You are not grasping or fixating on it. You are opening, letting the breath mix with the space of the room, letting your breath just goes out into the space. While you are breathing in, there could be some sense of just opening and waiting. It is just like pushing the doorbell and waiting fo someone to answer. Then you push the doorbell again and you wait for someone to answer. Then probably your mind wanders off and you realize you’re thinking again  at this point use the labeling technique: thinking. It’s important to be faithful to the technique. If you find that your labeling has a hars, negative tone to it, as if you were saying, «Dammit!», that you are giving yourself a hard time, say it again and lighten up.Compassion for others begins with kindness to ourselves.» Pema Chodron, Start Where You Are

Sim, significa que estou de volta. Nem sabia que me "seguias" aqui, tu ou alguém. Após este tempo de luto, continuo sempre em frente... :) Obrigada pelo comentário
