Living With Change

Every moment life is changing. In this practice, we turn out attention to the changing inner and outer landscape of experience as so learn to abide with a visceral understanding of the reality of change.

Beginning your meditation practice by finding a comfortable posture where you can sit relaxed yet upright, grounded and alert. Lowering the gaze or closing the eyes. And attuning awareness to sound, to hearing. Where are the distanct sounds? Near sounds? The symphony of sounds? No need to think about the source of the sound nor visualize it. Simply aware of the ebbing and flowing of sounds, of silence.

Sounds appear and are known quite effortlessly with mindful awareness. So resting in this receptive quality of attention, receiving this changing soundscape. We have sounds, and silence between the sounds. And with that same receptive attitude, receiving the sensations of the body. Sensations ceaselessly coming and going.

Sensations of touch, tingling, vibration, movement, pulsing,and energy, contraction and expansion. Aware of this changing landscape of body, moment by moment. So to awareness of the changing nature of breath. No two breaths alike. All of the myriad sensations of the inhale, expansion, lifting.

And sensations changing with the exhale, releasing, falling. No two breaths the same. No two moments the same. Sounds appearing and disappearing. Sensations ebbing and flowing.

Tied to breathing, moving in and out. Aware of the fluctuation of temperature, warmth, coolness. The fleeting sense of smell. Fragrance in the air as you inhale. And transient quality of taste in the mouth at times.

Resting in the stillness of awareness, present to this flow of phenomenon. At times aware of the changing terrain of the heart. Moods, emotions coming and going, sometimes like mist or like storms. Felt the sensation in the body. At times aware of the flickering of thoughts, images.

Thoughts, images coming and going ceaselessly. So too with sensation, sounds. Attune to this waterfall of experience. Sounds coming and going, sensations ebbing an flowing, breath moving in and out, moods, emotions, thoughts and images appearing and disappearing. Tune to this changing flow of experience, moment by moment.

And as we bring the practice to a close, noticing the influence of attending to this changing nature of experience. No two moments the same. Ebbing and flowing of phenomena in our experience, in the world around us. Helps us understand more deeply this truth of change. So please enjoying your practice.
