With Mindfulness Practice, Less Is More

When all is practiced and done, less is really more. This morning sitting down for practice, I realized mindfulness practice is indeed very simple.

Only sit,
and follow the breath with awareness.

No need to control the breath,
as it happens all by itself.
No need to think about the breath,
only feel it come and go.
No need to control outcomes,
that is too much work.
No need to exert the mind
with extraneous thoughts.
No need to move the body,
pain is part of the ride.

Only sit,
and sense what arises.


  1. good wishes.
