20 minutes of sitting breath meditation. I started meditating after a lot of struggle with myself, then my father called but I didn't reach the phone soon enough to take it. So I had to start again. I felt anger toward my parents during the meditation, took it as an insight about how our mind c ...

30 minutes of sitting breath meditation. Positive. In one of the audio files of The Magic of Mindfulness , Culadasa asks now "Do you know what the difference between having a thought and thinking is?" I think I got near to the answer. I should organize what I have learned from Culada ...

10 minutes of lying breath meditation. 20 minutes of body scan. Frequent shocks that got less frequent toward the end of the session. Recurring thoughts of "I am not ready for the world", what was interesting was that how zero-one the thought was, you can be 20%,30%,60%, or 80% percen ...

Well, this may not count as a formal meditation session but had some meditative quality. I wanted to meditate more today but one of my OCD grips came about and kept me busy for 3-4 hours. In this 3-4 hours, 75% of the time was spent avoiding the OCD grip. But at last I decided to sit with it, ...

15 minutes of lying breath meditation 10 minutes of sitting breath meditation. Finally sitting! 30 minutes of guided lying body scan. Very soon I felt sleepy so I opened my eyes.

Started my day with a fight in my head. I got so nervous. I did a guided body scan for 10 minutes. After that I felt somehow calmer. I felt in the last few days I was just trying to push unpleasantness out of my life, even the slightest ones. Then I told myself why so serious? Why am I fight ...

I felt much more energy in myself, I felt even too energetic. Then some uncomfortable things started to come up. In fact the las ...

Something has to change. I couldn't figure out what but now I know: the Bikram will end in the beginning of April. The caloric and other physical needs of it, I feel, are not conducive to one wishing to be prepared for the true monastic life. If I were to be staying here in Detroit, running my b ...

First time I was able to sit for 12 minutes and not even think about how long its been. I was actually surprised when the timer went off! I did cheat a little- allowing myself to scratch an itch once or twice- but it didn't distract for more than a few moments and I was still able to remain in a ...

I struggled a but at the beginning to get started. I adjusted myself and fidgeting a few times before I composed myself. Once I got past this, the rest of the sit was very refreshing. Reading a bit helped me focus on what I should. I still feel like I want to talk to Sayan or my aunt for some g ...

Guided Meditation - Tara Brach - Vipassana (Insight or Mindfulness) This is one of my favorites. I haven't done it for a few months, and since my month long absence from meditating, I figured I would give it a shot. Had an absolutely wonderful time meditating today. I feel as if I've already ...
