  1. these guided meditations help me let go of my negative judgments
    e.g. that sound is bad, that sound hurts, that sound intrudes in my life
    instead I realize they don’t really touch me, I can just notice them

  2. I have recently noticed that when there is no sound or very little, that there is a sound available
    inside my head that I can use as an object meditation. It can even be heard in noisy
    environments if I remember to listen for it.

  3. While practicing there was the distant sound of a small airplane engine that grew louder. What I noticed is that I didn’t say to myself, that’s a small airplane, but simply heard the sound without labeling that with an idea of what it is. Sounds that grow louder are interesting because there is a moment when they are not in your auditory field and then they “appear” and increase in volume, and you become aware of them within a larger sense of spaciousness.

  4. Awareness of hearing. The basic sound is the hum of the air conditioner. But slowly I became aware of many other sounds as the focus softened. Many many sounds. A door closing, some one talking slowly, sound of distant laughter, sound of footsteps approaching in the corridor outside ….footsteps receding. Awareness of the sense of hearing.

  5. “Just barely listen to sounds”. The keyword is “barely”. Hear the sound, not the content of the sound. Contrary to forms, sounds are dynamic; they don’t stick. I was drooling during this meditation.
