no way, I just don’t know

The basic platform upon which any mind-body practice operates is attention. Meditation involves, first and foremost, a fine-tuning of attention. Attention represents the precision- the efficient attunement- of neural connections and networks in processing information. When we pay attention through practice, we fine-tune the connections in the brain involved in the specific experience, so attention is the mechanism that enables neuroplasticity. As we practice remaining attentive to the breath or to a particular bodily sensation in yoga or meditation, we strengthen the neural pathways involved in their detection, and we thereby become more sensitive to such signals as they arise.

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.
