Opening to Stillness
Looking at objects with a narrow or an open focus encourages you to consciously move from a doing mode to feeling open, silent and available. When we look at objects with central vision we concentrate, name and judge. This makes us feel tight and separate. Looking at the same object as part of the background allows a feeling of openness and connection to arise. The same applies to listening with a narrow or a diffused focus. This meditation encourages you to consciously move from a doing mode to being open, silent and available without effort.
