Purpose: To explore the tendency of the mind to fixate on things rather than be receptive
The most basic form of Meditation is not even formally “Meditation”. It consists of taking small time-outs throughout the day for contemplation, assessment of the day, relaxation, breathing or anything else.
Relax deeply. Deeper than the physical. Deeper than the mental.
Sit and Be.
In your minds eye, bring a problem-issue into focus. Look at that problem issue, while at the same time remaining aware of many other realities. This means you are looking at the issue and at the same time at other things. The issue is no longer the exclusive point of focus but is viewed along with many other things…anything…tennis rackets, presidents, childhood memories, billboard ads, cartoons, fantasies, etc. It takes about 3 to 5 minutes of this to diffuse negative thought-forms and emotions.
