Breathe deeply. Inhale, slowly filling your abdomen up to your collarbone and exhale until the last breath is out. Relax.
Close your eyes. Place your attention on the area between your eyebrows. After a short time, a point of light will present itself in the center of your inner field of vision. Keep your focus there.

Sit quietly, calmly with eyes closed, as relaxed yet aware as you can be.
Visualize yourself on the left side of your minds eye as you would appear to yourself and others in a moment of impatience. Really see this inner vision. Watch your face, observe your body language. What does your impatient self look like?
On the right side of your minds eye, see yourself when you are very patient. What do you look like when you have a lifetime…Continue

Find a comfortable space and position. Begin breathing deeply through your nose. Slowly draw out each breath, gently allowing the air to fill your body and then escape.
Close your eyes.
Listen to the sounds around you, whatever they may be. Listen to barking dogs, passing traffic, people talking. Listen to the sounds going on inside your body. Listen to your stomach's grumbling, your heart's pumping beat, the blood running into each…Continue

Like the metamorphosis of the caterpillar,
Into a beautiful butterfly,
Let our past desire, karmas and sanskaras,
Be transormed into an ever new light,
Let bygones be bygones,
For the rebirth of spring,
Has flourished into a new joy.

Since the days of cave man and cave woman, people have been meditating on the elements. Each element can be focused on individually or all can be understood together, but the emphasis is the same: we are composed of and interactive with elements every moment. This realization is true self-discovery. The meditation techniques themselves are very elemental:

Gasho nasce come ali sul cuore
piccola perla che s'inchina
oltre tutte le forme ed il silenzio:
tepore antico che si dona
alla carezza d'un sorriso
Fiore di loto nella tiepida fragranza
perchè si è aperto lo scrigno
che ad occhi socchiusi appare vuoto
e in un tocco leggero sprigiona aromi
senza più tempo e logore domande
Gasho is born as…Continue
