Give Me Five

There seems to be a widely-held belief that meditation takes long, uninterrupted stretches of time.  With maybe the word "boring" coming into the picture. So we skip it.

How about if we give it five uninterrupted minutes: 

Long, slow breaths at the beginning (which should be good for about thirty seconds)
Sinking into our body consciousness (20 more)
Finding that point of light in our center (10 more)
Letting be whatever is there to be (3, maybe 4 minutes)
Long, slow breaths at the end (another 30 seconds)

I'm telling you, you're gonna love it.
