MAGIC POWER MEDITATION
You should begin by considering your own body, particularly your breathing. This is
not difficult, merely finding yourself a comfortable chair in which you can sit without falling
asleep. You should try to find a place where you will not be disturbed. Not because
disturbances are dangerous, but because you may find yourself enjoying the relaxed state so
much that being brought suddenly out of it by an offending family member may cause you to
lose your temper.
Once you have found your spot, sit quietly for about 10 minutes at a time. That is how
you start. Just by sitting and doing nothing, and while sitting try to notice how your body
reacts. Notice that twitch you have? Feel your lungs filling with air, rising and falling,
pushing out our rib cage and letting it fall back in.
As you sit, notice all of these things. Your body has certain places that are naturally
tense. You will hear things you normally ignore. That is not really so strange.
Everyone experiences it when they are falling asleep at night (i.e.. the creaking of the
house). Pay very close attention to all of these things and you will discover something
interesting. The more you listen to your own body, the less you are bothered by the
thoughts of the day. This is because your conscious mind can only handle one piece of data at a time.
If you are studying intently, you are unaware of what is going on around you. The more you
practice, the more effective your mind becomes at blocking out unwelcome stimuli.
