Seated Meditation Instructions: Doing Nothing is Worth Doing

Sit on a blanket or a pillow
Something not too high and not too low

Your place should be clean and quiet
It should be warm

Move your body in any way that you need
to get comfortable

Then settle down

Settle down
and let the world settle around you

However you are doing that
keep doing it

If you don’t know how to do that
do nothing

Notice that you are breathing and breathe deep, full, complete breaths
Breathe like this without any strain for as long as it pleases you

Then listen

Repeat this procedure again and again:
Sit, settle down, breathe without any strain, then listen

Or

do nothing

Keep doing that
