Join Scott Shute for an in-depth discussion in this video Preparation for singing Hu, part of Mindful Meditations for Work and Life.
- [Scott] This exercise is one of my favorites. … I've been doing this one since I was 13, … and it forms the basis of my personal daily practice. … It gives me clarity, helps me calm down, … and it really helps me be the best possible … version of myself. … I have a mental model for the world and why this works, … but I don't think it's really necessary to understand … why it works, I just like that it works. … So here's my mental model. … I'm Scott, I have a physical body and physical desires. … I also have a mind, … and my mind is often spinning, … maybe with regret about the past … or anxiety about the future, … and I have emotions like anger, frustrations, and others. … And these parts, the physical, mental, the emotional … can be terrible drivers of my life. … (laughs) My personal belief system is that … there's a higher part of each one of us. … It's the part of us that is infinite, … connected, and knowing. … So tactically, we're going to use a sound. … We're going to sing this word HU. …
