I use this type of meditation when I am in need of recollecting myself into myself.  Sitting still, putting everything on pause, noticing where I am and just simply breathing helps me settle the muddy waters.

When I can settle into just being alive in this very body, mind, place and present circumstances with acceptance, I begin to sense an ever-present quietness.  An inner stillness that I would describe like an ocean.  It is big and deep.  And I feel it there underneath all of the striving, doing and incessant wanting.

It is a silent awake space of pure being-ness.  Of pure awareness.

When I sit in this space, I take refuge and it gives me strength for my life.
