    Another great mediation Alan. Thank you very much. You may have seen my messages of how I enjoy your short guided meditation on the breath and I’d like to express how this “Simply Being” is of the same quality, effectiveness and provides me with a great inner discovery that I can work on in my more “wordly affairs”.

    For those who have not practised this guided meditation, the main focus and teaching is to provide you with the awareness of who you really are… without all the unnecessary things. Just you… your TRUE you… your Self… using your intention and attention in the most favourable way for your inner and outer growth.

    Personally, I am distracted constantly, both by my inner thoughts/tendencies as well as the common distractions any person must endure while living in a western society, and I do find it a necessity to schedule a daily practice to re-connect with my most pure inner-being, just me… without the unnecessary additions my ego and the world provides me.

    By practising the awareness Alan’s offering with this meditation it has allowed me to be much more conscious of what’s going on on the inside as well as how to respond (and not react) to the outer experiences life provides me. Every time I’m fortunate enough to “operate” through this awareness I find the quality of my life brighten in every imaginable way and I’m sure people who have experienced this can also relate to the same.

    If you want to anchor yourself in that peaceful inner place where you are just you… relaxed, attentive, responsive, resourceful, grateful; then I strongly suggest you give this meditation a try. It’s THAT effective for me and I’m sure it will be for many others too.

    Once again Alan, thank you for providing us all with so much value for free.

      Wow– that’s really insightful too. Thanks for sharing that. It really is true that the shift out of confusion is very simple and even easy. But the really crucial and powerful ingredient is appreciating and being grateful for this small shift for small moments and in small ways. Then the wonder of it appears. This is what I see in your comments and what is working for you in your practice.

    I love simply being, It is such an empowering and freeing feeling to just simply be. Imagine what a truly safe, wonderful and friendly place the entire world would be if everybody could just simply be..

      You got that right!

    I agree with Tommy. It is freeing to simply be! I think it’s important to concentrate on what actually matters to you instead of being distracted by work or family stresses. I also think this is related to, as McCartney said, “Let it Be”. It’s important for you to “be” and it’s also just as important to let other things simply “be”.

    This is one of my absolute favorite, quick sessions. And the change in me after the session is noticeable enough for people to remark on it. I wouldn’t go to classes or work, all frazzled and stressed out. And I am grateful to be one of those folks who do NOT need to be medicated to relax. Keep up the awesome work Alan! We all appreciate you. :)

    This one’s a keeper! I really enjoyed it – just stripping away any trappings and getting straight into just being. And the fact that it is short is really helpful to me, because I feel like I can do it at any time. Thanks a lot! :)
