Standing meditation compels full body awareness – one gets the sense that the body is intelligent. Once establishing a suitable stance and posture, give attention to how breathing feels in the body. Then, ‘What’s important now?’
We may assume, and learn, that meditation is about focusing on details, but the Buddha advocates whole body awareness. Make an exercise of it, extending your awareness. Maintaining attention on the whole body doesn’t allow the mind to fixate – it stays open so the tangles and storms have no place to take hold. Posture, breathing and a receptive mind state all act as supports.
