Catching a Glimpse of the Mind

tip

 

Tip of the Nose Meditation – Day 1. Two deliberate aspirations of meditation are 1) peace, which could also be referred to as alignment or ease and it leads to happiness; and 2) focus, this could also be called concentration and it leads to clarity through insight. In order to cultivate peace and maintain focus, we’ve got to train the lower mind. This is the aspect of our mental body that generates thoughts – lots and lots of them. It’s helpful to do this slowly, gently, and steadily by getting to know the mind. And a great way to do that is to simply observe it. Give it space and observe. The tip of the nose offers a wonderful vantage point for observation; a lovely place to rest your awareness as thoughts pass by.
