Hail and Greetings, Folks! Tonight We're Going To--
Start With A DOT...
A blip. A small point in space.
A period at the end of this sentence. THAT dot.
All I want you to do is, once you have posited into your comfortable meditation state, hold a dot, and no thing but that dot, in your mind's eye. (For me the mind's eye is mid-brow, just slightly above and in front of ...)
Focus on the dot.
When it fades-- and it will! Fast at first, then less fleeting as you-- gently but firmly bring it back into 'focus'.
In through the nose, down to the belly and feet.(Still got dot?!)
Out through the mouth.
Positive LIGHT in...
Negative shadow OUT...
DOT. POINT. PERIOD. Spot-- whatever.
Focus on it.
Quit focusing so hard... relax. and hold the dot in the mind's eye.
Try to work yourself up to three minutes (hey! you ain't got a clock, do ya? Because that's cheating...).
Just the dot. just the dot.
Sit, comfortably, breathing right, and BE the dot.
What this meditation exercise does, folks, is develop CONCENTRATION.
When you go to ritual, building thought-forms and visualizing healing (or other) energies... when you need to focus on a test question at school... when some other bullshit has your mind aflutter with extraneous smatterings...
DEEP Breath, and center...and get your mind back on the issue at hand.
Try it for a week, for a few minutes every evening, or [SwanShudders] morning if that be your creative timespan.
Don't over-do it... just [gently] DO it...
It's just a dot, folks...
And it will still your mind to awaken to the Infinite Universe...
Hale and Farewell!
