WEEK 4 – Resting in stillness

“Stillness is not the absence of movement, rather a viewpoint from which you observe movement”

  1. Read all the steps and notes below before starting this meditation.
  2. Get comfortable and completely relax remaining as still as you can. Notice your body breathing as if you noticed for the first time.
  3. Don’t be concerned if your mind is racing or thinking of this or that – let it – just choose to focus on your breathing for now
  4. Regardless of the activity in your mind, dedicate the next ten minutes to allowing yourself to experience whatever comes up for you whether it’s thoughts, feelings, visions or emotions.
  5. Set a timer for 10 minutes (choose a gentle alarm!) and start when you are comfortable and ready.

NOTES

  • Allow everything in this present moment, no matter how negative or how positive. Nothing is wrong or ‘shouldn’t be’. There are no mistakes.  You are never ‘doing it wrong’; there’s just what is!
  • Without engaging in any effort nor with any striving, simply choose to look deeply with curiosity at whatever your experience is in this present moment.
  • Imagine you are watching the movie of your life, the ‘little me’ life of concepts and thought forms with all its dramas and complaints; it’s upsets and it’s manic times.
  • Notice how ‘you’ are watching all this – and wonder, with curiosity, ‘how is it possible that ‘I’ can be aware of my own thoughts.
  • Notice the eyes of compassion and grace as you notice these things – rest in the awareness of all that comes up free from condemnation and judgement.
  • Do this every day of the week

  1. Read all the steps and notes below before starting this meditation.
  2. Get comfortable and completely relax remaining as still as you can. Notice your body breathing as if for the first time.
  3. Don’t be concerned if your mind is racing or thinking of this or that – let it – just choose to focus on your breathing for now
  4. Regardless of the activity in your mind, dedicate the next five minutes to allowing yourself to experience whatever comes up for you whether it’s thoughts, feelings, visions or emotions.
  5. Set a timer for 5 minutes (choose a gentle alarm!) and start when you are comfortable and ready.

NOTES

  • Allow everything, no matter how negative or positive; they are all merely ‘forms’ that belong in the manifest realm – they come and they go yet they are ALL vital for you to experience. Nothing is wrong or shouldn’t be. There are no mistakes.  You are never ‘doing it wrong’ – there’s just what is!
  • Without engaging in any effort nor with any striving, simply choose to experience that unconditional oneness with your source and look deeply with curiosity at whatever your experience is in this present moment.
  • Notice yourself bathed in the unconditional love of your source – a love without ANY conditions attached!
  • Notice the eyes of compassion and grace as you look – not with the ‘little me’ eyes with its conditions and judgements but seeing through the eyes of your unconditional source.
  • Do this every day of the week

COME BACK HOME

When you’ve done it again,
And there’s no one to care.
When it all unravels,
And you cannot repair.
It’s the Universe whispering,
‘Come back home’.
And the Universe whispers,
‘Come back home.’

When you cry your tears,
When you’ve made your bed.
When you stray from the moment,
With no rest in your head.
It’s the Universe calling,
‘Come back home’,
My dear.
And the Universe calls,
‘Come back home.’

When the heat is on,
When tomorrow brings fear,
When there is no dinner,
And yesterday’s still here,
It’s the Universe crying,
‘Come back home’.
And the Universe cries,
‘Come back home.’
