When I sit down to meditate, my inner experience can best be described by what I am not doing: I am not focusing my mind or contemplating any idea. I am not in an introspective or spiritual mood. I do not count, time, or control my breaths. No effort is being made to cause certain thoughts to come or go. There is no particular feeling I try to either induce or avoid. I do not pay attention to my body in a special way or attempt to relax any part of it. If I start to fall asleep, I do not resist the impulse. Read the original story here

I admit it.  I’m a big fan of Deepak Chopra.  He has lived a fine life in the public eye, seems to really walk his own talk, and is a wonderful writer who keeps things interesting and informative.  I am always eager to learn new meditation techniques from him, and to share them here with you.

Have you read any Deepak Chopra books?
