Nothing fancy here; quite simple, really. But so difficult for the clever busy multi-tasking thinking scheming restless mind. What if I lived my life that way — even for a day?
In meditation, don’t expect anything. Just sit back and see what happens. Treat the whole thing as an experiment. Take an active interest in the test itself, but don’t get distracted by your expectations about the results. For that matter, don’t be anxious for any result whatsoever.
