I have been helping people become more peaceful for a long time. In the course of that, I have had one-on-one interchanges with several of them.
I tell them to sit down for ten minutes a day and observe their internal landscape, then I talk about what they are seeing.
But there are some people whose minds are hyperactive. They are unable to make themselves sit down for ten minutes a day. Their minds are too jumpy to enable them to do any one thing for more than say, two minutes. Call it ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) if you will.
If you fit that bill, I have a prescription for you.
Spend ONE MINUTE a day watching your breath flow in and out with your eyes closed. Do this at any time of the day: lying in bed when you are just awake, or on the toilet, on the bus to work, during lunch break, in the doctor’s waiting room, on the treadmill, in the pool or after you lie down for the night.
What exactly do I mean by “watch your breath flow in and out with your eyes closed”? I mean breathe slowly and feel the air flow into your nostrils, down your throat and into your chest. Then feel it retrace its steps until it flows out of your nostrils.
Do this every day for six days. Then take a day off from it.
The next week, spend TWO MINUTES a day watching your breath. The week after, three, the week after that four and the week after that five.
At the end of the above five weeks if you will find you are an obviously calmer person.
If you are about to dismiss this prescription as voodoo, DON’T. There is a lot of logic behind why it works which, in the interests of brevity, I do not want to get into now.
If you are about to dismiss this prescription as “the same stuff that everyone and his dog talks about,” DON’T. Many people DO talk about breath-watching, and there is a good reason for that: it works.
Briefly put, do not dismiss the prescription without trying it. Once you give it a shot, there is no way you will dismiss it.
And what do you do after you have calmed down?
