Passive meditation is to allow the mind to remain ‘still’ and not bring it into active participation with events. With two simple but effective passive methods you can do meditation.
(1.) Watching the breath :- Breath- watching is a method that can be
done anywhere, at any time. You can simply watch this version-
(2.) Four levels of relaxing :- This method is useful for those time when
you are sick, because it helps build a loving connection, to create
a rapport between yourself and your body mind.
(i) The body :- you will be surprised that it you approach any part of
your body. With closed eyes, go inside the body from the toe to
the head. Tell your body to relax.
(ii) The mind :- Takes another step. A little deeper, tell the mind to
relax. It the body listens. The mind also listens.
(iii) The heart :- When the mind is relaxed, then start relaxing your
heart. If it is possible with the body and possible with the mind,
it is possible with the heart too.
(iv) Being :- When you have gone through these three steps, can
you take the fourth. You can go to the innermost core of your
being, which is beyond, mind and heart.
You will be able to relax it too, and that relaxation certainly brings the greatest joy possible. The ultimate in ecstasy and acceptance.
