There is nothing more simple than just sitting. Not sitting to learn (though you might), not sitting for clarity (though it's likely), nor sitting for some epiphany (you can't force understanding); but sitting just to be - to feel the flow of life coursing through your veins. To breathe, knowing that our breath is the furnace of life.
Sitting can be scary if you are used to being busy all of the time, but give it a try. Sitting can be the foundation for a rich and meaningful life.
Sit anywhere: outside in the sun, on the end of your bed, in your favorite chair, on a cushion, or even in your car. Just sit.
If you hear sounds of joy, such as birds singing or children laughing, then hear sounds of joy. If you hear sounds of sorrow, your regrets or fears bubbling up from deep within, then hear sounds of sorrow and know that they are only thoughts and that they will pass.
Sit and smile, or sit and cry. Sit and be yourself -you don't have to do anything at all. This moment is for you.
Let life flow.
