The skin below my nose

I was reading the current Readers Digest today and came across a blurb on meditation:

"Sit in a quiet space and focus on the skin below your nose and above your upper lip. Feel the sensations of your breathing. Aim for 15 minutes a day, building up to an hour."

A different version: "Sit in a quiet space and focus on the magnificence of our Saviour and Creator and praising Him and talking to Him and being silent before Him. Feel the sensations of His Spirit responding within you. Aim for 15 minutes a day and be amazed at how this turns into an hour."

Be different!

amen, sister.
why would they bother focusing on the skin below their nose? Why not focus on the One who gave you breath in the first place?! Otherwise, you could just focus on your toenail, or your C3 vertebrae, or your neighbor's frumpy bushes....
