Do not alter the breath in any way; just focus in the center of your chest or at the end of your nose; and breathe... then by knowing determine of it
is a long inhale, short exhale, short inhale, long exhale etc.
Come to notice the breath and the feelings of; in and of itself... how it changes in the face of experience, of thought arising and passing, while
sitting, walking and or laying down.
For example; a breath that occurs high in the chest and not four inches below the navel is where anxiety grows... when that energy is too high from
the lower seat; it goes from that upper seat and right into the head. All that occurs is a feeling ungrounded without a root... the mind goes out and
plans however many times; instead of just doing. Of course that intent of ANY doing is what to watch or see as that builds kamma of various sorts;
first in... mind/speech as a concept, that concept should be checked for how it impacts others before it impacts self; compassion of course should
also be given to the self for personal care... loving kindness is when one gives that same sort of care to others; as in also feeding them or looking
out for their needs. However if they become dependent on what you provide them? Then it turns into expectation, and rarely does such a person once
full of expectations ever give back.
Of course freely giving without expectation; can leave those expecting in wanting; which has a side effect of them grasping or clinging to you all the
more; however it is more out of anger and spite and self persecuting thoughts thinking that those feelings have arisen from you instead of themself as
the direct source for them.
A wall cannot stand without ground, cannot be build without a plan, without materials... yet as one just sits as a mountain it is not oneself that
tries to cut and build walls, roads, etc. as you are just there. The same as whatever un-named or "formless" "form" there may be in your meditation
Also notice all the mental noting of things and objects that need not be named as one sees them as that is the freedom of whatever that may be to just
be; the same as oneself. It is said every 100 years an object such as a "fork" or "ladle" gains self awareness or "wakes" up. Will it then cry old so
and so burned me half to death in a pot of boiling water!!!
Yes it will... and then armies of stupid amass together; and a fight ensues over who burned the dumbass that transformed into a spoon and fell asleep
forgetting what they were.
This is why I pay no heed to gods/titans etc.
