Use inner body awareness as a doorway to inner space.
Through awareness of breathing and life, your physical body becomes a doorway into your inner space. Inner space is intensely alive, it is life at its fullest, the unmanifested source out of which all manifestation flows. The traditional word for that source is God.
Take two or three conscious breaths.
Feel the subtle flow of air in and out of the body.
Detect a subtle sense of aliveness that pervades your entire inner body.
Initially, you may want to close your eyes for this practice. Once you can feel your body, open your eyes, look around, and continue to feel your body at the same time.
