What was your biggest takeaway from the interview with BJ Fogg?
Today there is a new breath practice called focus. It is a little longer (at the end of the practice there is a 5 minute silent period where you can continue your practice alone, the bell will then ring again at 20 minutes). See how you go practising in silence.
Now is the only time. How we relate to it creates the future. In other words, if we’re going to be more cheerful in the future, it’s because of our aspiration and exertion to be cheerful in the present. What we do accumulates; The future is the result of what we do right now.
~ Pema Chodron
In todays practice see if you can really FEEL the breath in your body, rather than THINK about the breath.
You will notice how different it feels when you are sensing the breath from the inside out, rather than analysing or thinking about the breath as it moves through the body.
As you practise this mindfulness of breath meditation more regularly, you will start to become more familiar with the breath, noticing how its quality changes in relation to how calm or stressed you are.
