Instructions for "Simple Sensation":
This exercise is a real return to the basics, and when it comes to mindfulness, the basics are often the most powerful. Without the basic practises we can get caught up in 'doing' meditation to reach a goal, to be a better person, to have better relationships, etc. There is nothing wrong with these goals, but without a solid basic practice to support them, then we can miss out on the core message of mindfulness—this moment, right here, right now is perfect, and nothing needs to change. When we really get this, then everything else is play.
Aim to do this exercise either several times a day for one minute each, or for a block of at least ten minutes a day. The morning is a great time to practice.
