Good morning all!
I find that i have a really tough time working with my breath.
It is often just too subtle for me to feel it at the opening of the nostril. While I do better with the sound of the breath (i have to sort of wrinkle up my nose to make it audible) i cant be doing that during sitting practice with a group!
MUST i work with the breath? I have a much easier time focusing on sounds (using an app...e.g. running water) or bodily sensation, e.g., the way my hands feel on my lap)
In working with the breath i find it easier to focus on the feeling of my chest expanding and contracting...sometimes the belly. Any reason I should not do this?
Every time i put my attention on breath i begin controlling it. Without fail. Any tips for just observing it?
Thank you all!
May all beings be well and happy!
