(by Vernon Howard)
Just sit in a quiet place and watch yourself. Notice the thoughts that stream through your mind, observe your emotional moods, be aware of your posture, notice whether you are relaxed or tense. Just be alert to everything possible, including the sound of a passing car or the smell of cooking or the fact of yourself being present in the room. Be aware of everything within you or without. Practice this while performing everyday tasks in the home or office.
Rid yourself of all preconceived notions of what should happen. Never get upset over what happens. You are at peace then, no matter what happens.
