Maximizing Meditation by Using the Power of Three

Let’s try to keep it simple. And quick. And therefore achievable.

Here’s a way to get started on a meditation practice. Maximize the Rule of Three. It’s one of the most pervasive organizing principles throughout humanity.

A mother, a father, a child. The Father, the Son, the Holy Ghost. Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva. Let’s throw in the Three Stooges, the Three Blind Mice, and The Three Musketeers while we’re at it. The list could be endless.

But what does this have to do with meditation? Answer: It’s about setting up a pattern of behavior that is sustainable and self-reinforcing. Let the Power of Three fuel your Mindfulness practice. Set out on a journey, like a story that has a beginning, a middle and an end, and then cyclically starts over again the next day.

Morning, noon and night.

Three minutes of meditating – focusing on the breath moving in, and the breath moving out. Three times a day – morning, noon and night.

The simple, sustainable route to a meditation practice.
