To develop an internal quiet mind, you always start with your breath and at the zone level of deep perception. In the exercise, you take your breath as object of focus. Whenever you get distracted from your breath, you pay attention to the distraction for a short moment and then you come back to your breath.
At the perception level of zone control, you increase the moments of awareness with a technique called making moments. When implemented in breath awareness, this means that you create conscious moments of breath awareness while you breathe in and while you breath out. For example, rather than feeling the air move through your nose as you inhale, you feel it move twice,three times, four times during the same time period, as if you try to register each small part of the inhalation. Then you do the same as you exhale. Initially, you can use counting, or your heart beat as reminders to be aware. As you get better, you can create an almost continuous stream of awareness.
