Explored how to reach deeper levels of relaxation, especially when there is
no physical feedback after a certain point.
The last physical feedback I get is a slight drooling sensation (strangely
the negative connotations have gone and have now become positive). After
that, feedback is basically, easier control over mind chatter and certain
inner sounds that start up.
Explored the importance of the inner "knowing". This is an awareness of
something that will happen when there is no sensation that this knowing has
come. This is hard to put into words. Imagine being alone in a room. Then
suddenly behind you a person materializes. However you cannot see the person
and the only way you know someone is there is when you "decide" to sense for
the person. When you do this, the person becomes visible (I guess intuition
is a good word for this). The key for me is how to "decide" to sense for the
person. There is nothing "obvious" to key into. I guess a certain type of
receptivity is needed. However further than this is the desire to "become"
this "knowing". Again, very hard to put into words.
When I explored these thoughts, I felt a strong affirmative sensation. Deep
levels of relaxation seems to be the best approach even though it is not
necessary or sufficient.
After a certain level of relaxation I could feel my lower back adjusting
very slightly. I sense that in any fixed position, your muscles are
continually adjusting to shift the strain. I think I was able to feel this
