|Dive deep into meditation, ever mindful of the breath before us, to one-pointedness.|
|Even walking, keep the breath in mind.|
|Looking up to the waters above or the clouds below, the mind unifies around the breath.|
Thinking will be and do its own thing, let it. How do I let it? Observe it, accept it, see it at a distance as impersonal, something that happens without will or volition. It just is. It's very interesting. Don't get caught up; just let it be. And turn your attention to the breath, which is far more interesting and something we have been neglecting for centuries.
It is like going to sleep while staying awake. How? Let the body relax so fully that there is no tension, yet you're sitting up.
Let the breath and mind relax while staying attentive to the object of meditation. The meditation object is the object of focus and attention. At first it will be the breath or a kasina (disk) or a recollection (like the Buddha, Dharma, or Sangha) with the help of an experienced teacher.
