This was a great meditation for revving up the inner fire from the root to the navel, helping to align my drive so that I can utilize my fire to propel me forward. I have a job interview tomorrow (yay!), so I know I will need to have some fierce energy to stand up to the challenge (and not be so ...

Waves seem more energy and less emotion this morning. Some periods of spaciousness and light in between the waves.

• Heart of my heart Tried sitting at a different time to see if the experience was different. My mind was sharper, and more alert, but I found it much more difficult to but down the day. My mind kept wandering off, trying to solve problems. At times it felt like I was starting to sink deeper int ...

Like a repeat of this morning's sit only with the intensity of the energy and the emotions up a good few degrees.

Tai Chi - wish I could remember the names of the forms, but I don't have my notes. Anyhow, this form is producing some strong sensation and flow at times, but this session was just typical. I note that when I complete the meditation on the Dantien, I have a habit of starting to switch off as if ...

Mmf, sat just after Tai Chi (so an hour total meditation), and the sitting was not pretty. The last section in particular I was just waiting the alarm out. A period early on was extremely sensate, focus on my breath drew exquisite attention to the flavouring of the walls of my mouth and other se ...

No resistance to the expression; love flowing so freely, I set few images before myself, the relationship with the Beloved was paramount; waves of rapture engulfed me over and again, felt intimate, valued, loved...

The start - Omlife. Yesterdays meditation didn't work. I was grumpy all day, ungrounded and not focused.

This is my first time meditating what I think has been close to a month! Starting for the first time is always the hardest, but I am always so glad when I do it. I know that the more often I meditate, the more I get out of it. Today's sit involved mostly me trying to bring my awareness back to t ...

All yesterday's resistance seems to have faded away. This sit was full of energy and emotions, which came, were observed and some passed. Sense that this is a good start but that more is to come.

• Heart of my heart I seem to be following a pattern - the first half was difficult, distracted, feeling like I'd 'lost it', then slowly the day fell away and I came to a much better place where I felt I could just surrender and let things take their course. At that point there was relaxation, a ...

First half only surface deep - almost too comfortable. Second half - something darker arising, not sure what but could spot a reluctance to go there - body suddenly more fidgety, mind wanting to wander. Managed to sit with it. Will await what arises.

What I am trying to control, ends up controlling me. I try to control my thoughts, and become a slave to them. I try to control my future, and life becomes a task to be accomplished. I try to control my voice, and my song is weak and tense. I try to control my dance, and become a robot.

The words come out easily as an expression of the longing, the awe and the wonder felt for existence; an intense, blissful presence engulfs me, I am enlivened beyond words, shaking with energy, so enraptured that thought fades into the background; I feel that resistance is fading, a better readi ...

Very equanimous all day to everything that arises, and there's a subtle frustration as I sit, a shade of arrogance, a hint of aversion... then I realise I'm being a psychologist, and there's just sensations again without much of a narrative, without me deliberately building it on. Calm, curiosit ...

I set my alarm so it sounds like the bell at the vipassana, it is a very nice way to wake up and lets me easily walk over to my meditation spot to begin. About 20 minutes in, there's a sleepiness in the mind. It feels like the mind is yawning and slowly fogging over to try and pull the body to s ...

Haven't been sitting regularly for quite a while - focusing on tai chi - so this was a return, so to speak. Just focusing on breath; early on found my way into it and enjoyed each breath, thoughts subsided and were only minor intrusions. Before too long thinking and straying attention returned, ...

Noted slight sad longing replaced by a sea of calm. Sense that all is and will be well.
