Most people are lost in thought, mesmerized by thought, experiencing the content of thought as real events. With the practice of mindfulness we can first learn to turn away from the dominance of thought, and then bring awareness to the direct experience of thinking as a present time experience.
The attitude of meditation is one of engaged listening – a relaxed, receptive yet intimate attention. This meditation explores how we can listen to sounds, listen to and feel sensations, and then relax back into the ocean of awareness that includes and perceives the changing waves. In this relaxing back, we realize the peace and freedom of inhabiting our wholeness and essence.
