The purpose of this meditation is to focus on the emptiness of our body.

I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation. I then called to mind the simple fact is I related to a body that is about 17 years old. I am actually 47 but when I think of myself I tend to think of myself as being much younger. One hears of people in their 90s who say “I 18 on the inside”.

I concentrated on the idea of the I I relate to is very different from my body and mind. How can the I I relate to be only 17 years old? It must be that this I does not exist. It is an invention: a fabrication.

I focused on the idea that my eye is in the fabrication and slowly it dissolved into emptiness. I focused on this emptiness as the object of my meditation.


May all living beings realise emptiness.

Practice in the meditation break

I will try to maintain an awareness of the emptiness of my I.
