non-identification meditation

Updated: Oct 5, 2022


Take a comfortable meditative position. This meditation can be done sitting, lying down, standing, or walking.


Take a few relaxing, refreshing breaths. Power the breath through the belly, draw through the nose, inflate the chase, & release: ahhhhh.


During the session, follow these two guidelines:


(1) non-identification with doings


Do not identify any doing as yours, & do not identify any doing as not yours.


Refrain from identifying any doing as yours or not yours.


E.g., if you notice breathing, do not identify the breathing as yours, & do not identify the breathing as not yours.


E.g., if you notice the thought "I am breathing," do not identify the thought as yours, & do not identify the thought as not yours.


Feel free to anchor your intention with these words:


not identifying any doing as mine, & not identifying any doing as not mine


refraining from identifying any doing as mine or not mine


(2) non-identification with happenings


Do not identify any happenings as yours, & do not identify any happening as not yours.


Refrain from identifying any happening as yours or not yours.


E.g., if you notice a body, do not identify the body as yours, & do not identify the body as not yours.


E.g., if you notice a mind, do not identify the mind as yours, & do not identify the mind as not yours


Feel free to anchor your intention with these words:


not identifying any happening as me, & not identifying any happening as not me


refraining from identifying any happening as me or not me


Finish by bowing gently three times: once to doings, once to happenings, & once to you
