Totally relax. The physical body is automatically aware without any attempt on imaginations part or attention. You don't have to try at all. Its always totally aware of reality around you. Not sensed because attention/imagination interferes. Even with animals this is true. Let that attention totally relax. For it is just a mimic of those around us and taught to us and animal small mind. True shinzantaza meditation. To just sit. Or just go play the violin.

Can't predict the future. They have ever only predicated possibility.
That's like saying Siddhartha or Jesus will return someday. Yeah maybe if they desire life. I highly doubt most people stay dead long desiring life after a brief period. Heaven is empty. We are all here on earth.
