One of the amazing things about my meditation practice is that it continously clues me in to what I'm paying attention to and how deeply I can place my attention. A great activity that lets you remember that the mind has no boundaries is to get quiet, sit in a meditative position with upright posture, and simply let your attention focus on the sounds around you. See how far out you can go--from the sounds right in your room to sounds outside to the ambient noise around you. Once you get past the more immediate sounds, it becomes easier and easier to discern the ones that are not immediately obvious. Do this for about five minutes.
The brain is an incredibly complex organ with capabilities far outside of general understanding, and with a little practice and effort, a normally functioning one can be tuned and focused to a limitless degree.
All Meditation techniques require focus, and even if you're learning from a book or CD etc, your ability to concentrate your attention will expand far beyond your expectations with every step you take. Most can be practiced anytime and anywhere - without others even being aware of what you're doing - and quickly become part of your daily routine, enhancing every aspect of your output.
