Connecting with the sensation of breath inside
Today’s practice focused on staying with breathing sensations within the body, counting while on both the inhale any exhale approved focus and kept my mind pretty much free of thought for most of the meditation. I recognized a thought that came to me toward the end of the meditation, I needed to think about it for a few seconds and recognize why that thought entered my mind and then I was able to let it go. I was fully absorbed in the breathing and will try to remember to practice periodically throughout the day. One thing I did think about in the beginning was that I wished that I was outside breathing in fresh air and exhaling old stale air.
