Theres a simple one I used to do at work for 2 years, 15 minutes every day.. i would just eat my breakfast after an hour of work, sit in a cafeteria,
drink my coffee and close my eyes. I like crowds with stuff like this. I would observe people walking and kind of look at them peripherally, and not
observe the person but their motion, and in that motion translates a subliminal personality, i would just see the energy in motion and percieve
qualities of that person without really looking at them directly. I was suprised of the diverse observations I had of people, making me think it
wasn't too much to my imagination. My goal here wasn't to judge people, but rather to see beyond the physical, to see energy in motion rather then
But the main thing I did, and I credit this technique of mine for really helping me out. After 2 years of not really realising what I was doing.. i
had learned my mental discipline had increased, as well, i was no longer angry in the morning at people. Just 15 minutes of the following every
I think of the people I love the most, i visualise them individually, and even think of some details I like, by now I'm usually smiling if i'm not
in a pissed off mood. From there I think of other people I like, or know but not so much, and think about their good qualities and i eventually think
of random people I don't know.. this is where the people watching really comes in.. i watch people walking by and i'm like yeah.. hes a good a guy,
so is she, etc.. I'd always be in a happy mood and willing to work after that every day. I found that one day, i didn't need to do it anymore, for
I was always happy, because that certain understand finally stuck with me.
After that, attempting larger meditations was simple, and very productive.
I might add that during this 15 minute technique i would try and focus on one object, just to see if i could control my active mind, so that helped my
mental discipline as well.
Again, 15 minutes, every day, for 2 years, it really got me goin.
