mind game reminder

funny-crazy-mind-bunnies-clipartToday, surrounded by loving, awake friends, I was reminded of other ways to address the nattering nighttime mind.

The thoughts are precipitated by feelings. Sink into those. Welcome them, even if they are uncomfortable. Most likely, they are familiar friends who have been with me most of my life.

The feelings, when I place my attention on them, reveal themselves as simple bodily sensations. Notice these.

Allow pure awareness to seep into them, expanding and dissolving the remnants. Or invite them to soften and gradually disperse.

Rest in beingness.

Repeat again, again, again. Again.

  1. Fascinating! Thank you…. it’s wonderful to read about your own nattering mind explorations. These wakeful hours are often fertile territory for discovery…with no one to interfere but our “selves”. Your descriptions are a map for further exploration!

    Dear Amrita,

    I know you originally said you were going to be at the Retreat via live streaming, but I saw you on the screen the first day so I know that you are there in person.

    Thanks for your question from today (or was it yesterday?), and I am very impressed with how you got the essence of it out in your blog within 24 hours.

    I am really enjoying the power of this retreat via live streaming. Keep asking great questions!
