Trying again: Learning to Just Sit! and Focus — reflections on beginner meditation.

Perched straight

backed on chair

with body still

Cross-legged

on the floor hurt

even with pillows

perhaps yoga

is in order

Focus

Breath measured,

Eyes lightly closed

Inhale/exhale 1

Inhale/exhale 2

Inhale/exhale 3

and so on to ten

then repeat again

and over again

around 7 lost

in thought about

improper posture

and the dog barking

outside of mind

and moment

Focus!

Start Over

Inhale/Exhale 1

Inhale/Exhale 2

Inhale/Exhale 3

and so on to ten

then repeat again

and over again

around 7 lost

in thought about…

Focus!

Notes from Smiling1541….

Hey all,

I have been exploring Buddhism and generally working toward an improved outlook on life, with therapy and all and figured Angry1541 wasn’t the best name I could use.  So, as I have been smiling a lot lately, I figured….okay…Smiling1541 it is.

Same site, same everything, new URL and what not….enjoy!
