Mind pervades all, just like the sky.
Wipe the dirt from the mirror of mind.
And look into the space of the stainless sky. -Milarepa
Gazing is one of the most simplest and enjoyable experiences you can undertake.
Gazing is almost the same as Doing Nothing. The main difference is that gazing has an object focus, and includes more concentration.
Vast and open spaces such are the clear blue sky are the most fun to gaze at.
How to gaze
To start out gazing you can lie down on your back and make yourself comfortable by getting pillows and blankets if you need to.
Once you are comfortable stare at the clear blue sky.
The sky is just the sky. Just that. Nothing to say about it or make a big deal of.
Gazing into your own mind.
Gazing into pure space.
