Whenever you find time, relax the breathing system just for a few minutes, but nothing else – there is no need to relax the whole body. Sitting in the train or plane, or in the car, nobody will become aware that you are doing something. Just relax your breathing. Let it be just as it is when it’s functioning naturally. Then close your eyes and pay attention to your breathing. Notice it going in and coming out, going in………..
Don’t concentrate! If you concentrate, you will worry about whether you’re doing it the right way and then what happens is everything tends to become a disturbance. If you try to concentrate sitting in the car, then the noise of the car becomes an intrusion, the person sitting beside you becomes a distraction.
Meditation is not concentration. It is simple awareness. You simply relax and watch your breathing, and in that watching nothing is excluded. If the car is humming – that’s perfectly OK, accept it. If the traffic is busy, that’s OK, it’s all part of life. And if the person next to you on the bus has started to snore, accept it. Nothing is rejected.
You cannot avoid truth. It is better to accept it, to factor it in, to live with it, to marvel at it in wonder and appreciation.
When you open your eyes, awaken to your surroundings and lose yourself in the here and now. Encourage yourself to be amazed and filled with wonder.
