Body sensations and the sensation of the body as a gateway.
I bring up the idea of using the body's sensations and the overall sensation of the body (minus thought) as a gateway into beingness.
There are many teachings that reference body sensations. They are helpful in order to start from somewhere.
I also find that it's not so much about focusing or concentrating on the body sensation(s), but rather releasing tension through body sensations, and relaxing via body sensation.. then it becomes effortless, otherwise it builds up tension instead.
This is the path of letting go, surrender, or bhakti yoga. It's also the path of the Tao and going with nature.
