About this deal
Following the Buddha’s pragmatic approach, Shaila guides you through five steps for overcoming distraction and focusing the mind: One helpful aid to precision and accuracy is to make a soft, mental note of the object of awareness, naming the sensation by saying the word gently and silently in the mind, like “rising, rising . . .,” and “falling, falling. . .”

Mindfulness, 4(4), 394–401. https://doi.org/10.1007/s12671-013-0212-z Vipassana, or insight meditation, is the practice of continued close attention to sensation, through which one ultimately sees the true nature of existence. It is believed to be the form of meditation practice taught by the Buddha himself, and although the specific form of the practice may vary, it is the basis of all traditions of Buddhist meditation.
The behaviors or mental acts are aimed at preventing or reducing anxiety or distress, or preventing some dreaded event or situation; however, these behaviors or mental acts are not connected in a realistic way with what they are designed to neutralize or prevent, or are clearly excessive. As we get closer and closer to this lifting process, we will see that it is like a line of ants crawling across the road. From afar the line may appear to be static, but from closer up it begins to shimmer and vibrate. The technique of the invisible suit or cloak can be combined with a simple energy technique like the “zip up.” The zip up is a movement that stimulates the conception vessel and heightens energy flow. The conception vessel is located between the pubic bone and the lips. The direction of energy flow is upwards, from the lower part of the body towards the lips. Going with the natural energy flow of the conception vessel means moving upwards, like closing a zipper.

Where & How to Sit
Anālayo, Bh. (2020). Buddhist antecedents to the body scan meditation. Mindfulness, 11(1), 194–202. https://doi.org/10.1007/s12671-019-01259-8 From even closer the line breaks up into individual ants, and we see that our notion of a line was just an illusion. We now accurately perceive the line of ants as one ant after another ant after another ant. The Progress of Insight Meditation need not come to an end after an hour of sitting. It can be carried out continuously through the day.
