Day Three: A possibility, emotional choosing

As we go through our day, let’s keep sensing our legs and sensing our breathing and noticing along with that: how are we feeling?

When do we feel happy?

When do we feel sad?

When do we feel angry, afraid, worried, and so on.

Can we just notice that and come back to sensing our legs and our breathing?

Maybe we can.

Maybe we can’t.

Maybe we sometimes can and sometimes can’t.

Consider this in a strange and very revealing way. After each emotion, let us all play with the idea, the possibility of ourselves as having CHOSEN that emotion.

Don’t think about this.

Just notice and come back to the now of legs and breathing.

That’s “all,” and that’s a lot, and it is a “lot” to live in this miracle of the present.

Play with noticing our feelings.

Play with the idea of having chosen them.

Play with the coming back to the ongoing reality of legs and breathing. Sounds so humdrum compared to the drama of all our emotional “stuff.”

So what?

Come on back to now, and see how powerful that this really is.

This now, too, always this now as we read, as I write, as we put down the book and go about our life.

And at the end of the day, in bed, before going to sleep, each day review the game/ lesson/ meditation of the day.
