In this meditation, we take a step back and become curious observers to whatever our mind is focusing on, whether it be our surroundings, sensations in our body, our thoughts, or our breath.
While reading the book, Meta Human by Deepak Chopra in bed last night, he speaks of a phrase that I knew I had heard before by listening to a meditation, choiceless awareness. thought behind choiceless awareness, according to Chopra, is letting the choice to happen on its own. In other words, we let our awareness to happen on its own. It is a hard concept to wrap our head around where our lives are filled with endless choices. However, when we are in the state of choiceless awareness, we are essentially allowing life to flow. We are allowing ourselves to ‘just be’ ourselves, without judgement.
While listening to this meditation, my mind went from thoughts, to my breath, to my thoughts and back to my breath. In this way, I was ‘just being’. In the state of choiceless awareness, I experienced a sense of freedom of allowing every experience I had to be one thing.
