Quiet the Fighting Mind
In the Kototama philosophy, "O" dimension is the dimension of mind/brain/thought. Meditation practices generally attempt to quiet the fighting mind. That constant chatter that vacillates between yes and no.
Todays simple practice:
Lie, sit, or stand comfortably. Bring your hands together, palms slightly apart but facing each other, in front of your Tan Den. Take a deep breath into your Tan Den and from here sound the sounds of "Su-A-Wa" until you complete the breath.
While you are doing this for five minutes, pay attention to the feeling between your hands. Should thoughts begin to push into your practice, simply focus your attention back on the sounds you are making and the feeling between your hands.
When you finish, take a moment to experience and note how you feel. How does it compare to yesterday and the days previous?
Thank you for joining me today. Let your day unfold and be present in the moment.
In good health,
