In this final part of the three part series on Non-Meditation and Non-Distraction, Mingyur Rinpoche explains how to practice this meditation in everyday life. Using meditation on the breath as an example, we can practice noticing our breath during any activity – walking, talking with others, eating, etc. – everywhere, anytime. Rinpoche says this simple technique can also be helpful when we experience panic, stress and difficulties with others. Like the breathing practice, this simple approach to practice can also be used to watch thoughts and emotions.
– What sensations do you notice in your body as you are carried away by difficult thoughts and emotions?
– As you place awareness on your breath, do you notice any changes in these sensations?
