Body Scan Meditation : M Cullen. Integrative Health Partners - Resources. An image about practicing meditation that may be helpful is that of standing at a railroad crossing, watching a freight train passing by. In each transparent boxcar, there is a thought. We try to look straight ahead into the present, but our attachments draw our attention into the contents of the passing boxcars: we identify with the various thoughts. As we attend to the train, we notice there's supper in one boxcar, but we just ate, so we're not pulled by that one.

The laundry list is the next one, so we reflect for a moment on the blue towel hanging on the line to dry, but we wake up quite quickly to the present once again, as the next boxcar has someone in it meditating and we recall what we're doing. A few more boxcars go by with thoughts clearly recognized as thoughts. We stick to some and we don't stick to others. Then, we notice as we look straight ahead that we're starting to be able to see between the cars. Mindfulness meditations’s stream. Awareness of breath--full instructions by Mindfulness Meditation.
