A timer is essential for one minute meditation

If you are trying the minute meditation (see previous post) a good timer is essential.  I'm enjoying my i-Qi timer which you can download for free for the iPhone and iPad.  Technology.  Some times it's ok.   They also have a facebook page.  Having a timer eliminates the concern about whether or not time is up.  Our heads are full of who knows what but at least we can eliminate that little concern.

"It's not a time for making decisions or worrying about life.  It's not a time for being complicated.  For one structured minute, instead of all that doing - the normal frenzy of activity - you are quite deliberately just being.  It is like a state of suspension: for one whole minute everything is on hold.  You step out of time and come back to your life refreshed."  - Martin Boroson One-Moment Meditation
