Resting in Being

In this meditation we train in resting in 'being' mode and unwinding stress and tension.

So just settling into your

meditation posture now.

And when you're ready, just

allowing your eyes to gently close.

And now just bringing the fullness

of your attention to the feeling

of the breath moving in your body.

And really letting this moment be

center stage in your awareness.

And seeing if you can get a sense of just

letting everything else drop away into

the wings so that all that's left is just

this moment, and the focus on the breath.

And as you follow the breath and

motions, sensations and thoughts may be

coming and going just like the weather

comes and goes in the sky, no problem.

Just whatever's moving through

here now, just letting it come and

go, letting it be just as it is.

So there's no need to try and control

anything or push anything away.

We're not trying to fix anything

or change anything at all here.

Just allowing the flow of experience to

be just as it is, and resting attention

on the feeling of the breath in your body.

For many of us, it can be hard topause from all the urges to fix,

solve, and change things around.

So you might find your mind is constantly

racing forward, doing your to-do list,

planning a conversation with someone or

thinking about a goal you could attain.

Or maybe the mind is thinking about

fixing your imperfections, becoming

something better or something more.

Or maybe your mind's wandering to exciting

experience you'd like to have in the

future instead of being here and now.

We often do so much of this kind

of striving, always wanting to get,

become, or have something more.

And this urge is often what

runs us into the ground.

We so rarely just let

ourselves and let things be.

So give yourself permission to do so now,

permission to just rest here in being,

with nothing to do, nowhere else to be.

Just breathing, resting, and

being fully alive to this moment.

As this practice now comes towards

the end, just notice how your

mind and body feel after taking

this time out to simply be.

And when you're ready, beginning

to move the fingers and toes.

And gently blinking open the eyes.

And wishing you a great day.
