Sit comfortably with your back straight but relaxed. Take a few deep breaths, then let the breath flow out naturally. Rest your attention on the rhythm and on the air you breathe.

Do not imagine your breathing. Do not visualize it. Just experience it.
Do not control your breathing making it more deep or less shallow.
Just be aware of your breathing as it is from moment to moment.
Come back to your breathing gently and firmly again and again.

You may hear sounds.
Feel sensations.
Think thoughts.
Do not grasp, make stories or reject them.
Let them come and go lightly.

As you mind becomes quiet and still,
Rest in the natural awareness of your thoughts.
You are sitting.
You are breathing.
Allow awareness to just be.
