The Sweet Vantage Point

TipDay2

 

Tip of the Nose Meditation – Day 2  Two deliberate aspirations of meditation are peace, which could also be referred to as alignment and it leads to happiness; and focus, which could also be called concentration and it leads to clarity. 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 and lots and lots of them. This is usually quite obvious the moment we sit down to meditate!

How do we train the mind? It’s helpful to do it slowly, gently, and steadily. We begin 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 sweet vantage point for observation; a lovely place to rest your awareness as thoughts pass by.

Today’s meditation uses bells as markers to become aware of the location of the mind. It’s a nice exercise. Enjoy.
