Are you having trouble quieting your mind during your ChiRunning or ChiWalking practice?
Regarding meditation, an old Chinese Zen Master once said, “Some of you are taking me literally when I say, ‘Don’t think,’ and you are making your minds like a rock. This is a cause of insentiency and an obstruction to the Way. When I say not to think, I mean that if you have a thought, think nothing of it.”
Or as John Lennon said, “Let it be.”
And then simultaneously turn your attention to what you are doing. If you’re running or walking, pay attention. If you are meditating quietly, tune in to your breathing and posture–even if you’re at your desk.
Keep your core centered, your intentions aligned, and let it be.
