Dear Mr. Gibson

Now it is time to introduce meditation. Your appartments location is ideal for that practice, being a bit out of the traffic and with the ocean at your doorstep. So, to practice meditation, sit comfortably in your chair with a straight back. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Imagine that your breath is an ocean wave falling in and out. When other thoughts enter your mind, think: "I wonder what the next thought is going to be", then wait for it and repeat when it arrives. In time you will be able to spend more time in between thoughts, that is to say with an empty mind.
There is plenty of material out there on meditation, Zen, Yoga and more but you donĀ“t have to learn any of that untill you are interested. Practice the method above and in time you will get interested.
