He favours alternate nostril breathing, and a separate but short meditation that goes something like this:
Sit tall, palms open, eyes closed. With an effort to take full breaths, bring your attention into your heart, and gratitude into your thoughts. Stay in your heart as you ask yourself.....
"Who am I?"
"What do I want?"
"What is my purpose?"
"What really makes me happy?"
There should be no expectation of the answers to these questions. They are only meant to stimulate the part of our brains responsible for coherence.
"The neurons that fire together, wire together."
In making a practice of this, we are taking steps to reverse the chemistry that results from stress and exhausts the adrenals and central nervous system while compromising our health and longevity. Hmmmm. I'm exhausted just thinking and writing about all the damage I've already done. Time to meditate...... O M mmmmm.
