Try to hear every single raindrop fall

We finally have some rain and there's something calming about sitting indoors with the pitter patter of raindrops outside the window. There's a number of different things you can do with this experience but paying attention to sounds is a good one to try.

So then, you have a comfortable sitting position and the rain is lightly falling outside. Now try to hear every single raindrop as it makes it's contact with the ground, window or roof. You might think this is impossible but give it a try. Open your mind, open your ears. You might have a moment where you hear everything all at once. That's it! The mind then jumps in and tries to grab the experience - then you hear nothing at all. Now notice yourself jumping from the awareness of sounds back into a stream of thoughts. Flow and blockage. Openness and contraction.

You might find this interesting and you might not. The seeds of deeper awareness are sown here.
