This morning, before going out the door, I meditated for 10 minutes in the center of my apartment. It felt funny for the first few minutes, just sitting there, but then I concentrated on my breathing. I became aware of some of the thoughts that had already occurred to me as I got ready. I imagined them as a wind, though, and relaxed as I took the Buddha's advice and allowed them to come and go. I breathed deeper, and deeper, until I could breath from my waist. Then I simply rose to attention, leaving the room with a click.
