Meditation Technique

Meditation technique for savasana (corpse pose)
This body scanning method can be used to release tension, decrease anxiety, and cope with stressful situations. Although the technique can be used anywhere, it works particularly well with in corpse pose. Depending on how quickly you scan, the exercise can take between 5 and 15 minutes to complete. Here's how:

Imagine that your body were made of candle wax. Shift your awareness to the crown of your head, and melt that space with your gaze. As the wax begins to melt, feel the tension releasing from your scalp. Scan downward slowly through your face, neck and the rest of the body until you reach your toes, spending extra time melting any areas that feel tense. To finish, scan from the toes all the way back to the crown of your head. When you have finished, focus your mind on the sound of your breath and simply relax.

If you try to discredit me without examining my idea, then you're rejecting and not just losing the chance to learn something new and important about your own beliefs. If you do make the effort to examine my idea, you might find that your own beliefs are more strongly reinforced. But even if they aren't, it would be important for you to find that out, too.

It is amazing how many people think that they can answer an argument by attributing bad motives to those who disagree with them. Using this kind of reasoning,
you can believe or not believe anything about anything, without having to bother to deal with facts or logic.
