Before getting out of bed this morning I noticed that attention was filled with sights and sounds from a telly programme I watched last night. So ‘I’ switched attention to breathing and body awareness. But ‘it’ quickly switched to thinking of the details of a project at the weekend and to work that needs doing on some web sites. So, again, ‘I’ switched attention to breathing and body awareness.
It is to be noted that attention rarely stayed with the present moment for more than a few seconds. But there was quite good awareness of what was going on - there was thought - but ‘I’ was not lost in it - not completely! As I woke I was to some extent awake - yahoo!
