Being with what is, we welcome and allow all sensations to be as they are. Allowing our breath to be our anchor to the present, we find that our thoughts, emotions and sensations rise and fall in each moment. Knowing that we were here prior to those things rising and falling in our consciousness, we realize that we can’t be any thoughts, emotions or sensations.
Getting settled, I brought my awareness to follow my breath into my belly. With my belly softened, I felt the walls expand and contract with each new rising and falling of my breath. With my awareness on my breath, I witnessed thoughts coming and going. Without attaching a story to any one thought, the bubbling and dissolving of these thoughts occurred without any resistance from me. Continuing to have my awareness on my breath, I witnessed various emotions rising and falling. Being a witness to these emotions, I saw them as clouds passing on by the sky of my consciousness. By allowing everything in these moments to just be, I felt a sense of freedom from any attachment. Free from any attachments, I am able to just be.
