“Everyday, first be quiet for a time, until body and mind are both peacefully settled and your breathing is gentle and even. Now lightly close your eyes and gaze into the region below the heart and above the genitals, within a space of 1 .3 inches (below the navel), without becoming fixated on it and without departing from it either. Do not forget it, do not force it. When myriad thoughts disappear and the soul alone is present, this is called right mindfulness.

At this time, in this mindfulness is liveliness and buoyancy; in that energy is serenity and contentment.”
