Note 264

I want to be a mindfulness instructor.

Today's session is about death. Everybody take a deep breath in.
I want you to imagine that this building is structurally unstable.
And out
Imagine that while I'm talking, the foundation gives way.
And in
Now you're trapped under rubble. Your legs, arms and abdomen are pinned.
And out
The rubble is slowly pushing down on your chest, making every breath harder than the next.
And in
Concentrate on your body. Feel the weight of the rubble as it slowly squeezes the life out of you.
And out
DON'T PANIC! Death is just a part of life and we must all experience it.
And in
You try to scream but nothing comes out as the concrete gets heavier and heavier.
And out
Focus on your breath. After what seems like hours of wheezing, you feel your ribs begin to crack.
And in
You start to cry uncontrollably, making breathing even harder.
And out
The light starts to fade. Your thoughts center on your friends and family. You wish you could see them one last time.
And in
Hold it... hold it...
And out
Okay let's take a break everyone. Help yourself to snacks.
