See without Looking

I haven’t shared a meditation technique in a while, so today seems like a good time to do so.

To give us some corn to pick off the cob, let’s turn to one of my favorite Chinese philosophers, Lao-Tzu, who writes…

An integral being knows without going, sees without looking, and accomplishes without doing.

With that thought in mind, consciously breathe deeply several times while you relax and focus inwardly.

Repeat and slow down, way down.

Become one with the flow of your breath.

If you’ve done this properly, you have integrated the wisdom of Lao-Tzu into your life and now you can know without going, can see without looking, and can accomplish without doing.

That’s all there is to it.

Just be.

  1. It’s a simple concept but hard to do consistently. I like the method you mentioned – to simply focus on your breathing. Some count breaths with inhale is one, exhale two, inhale 3, exhale 4 …. up to 10 if you can get that far. Then focus on the while light. I will give it a try now…
