It is my pleasure to describe my meditation practice.
I practice inner sounds meditation. I use ear plugs to eliminate most
external sounds. I close my eyes. In a relaxed position, I allow my thoughts
to gently subside; this typically follows my physical relaxation.
As I relax and my mental chatter subsides, I become increasingly aware of my
inner sounds. It starts like the white noise you get when a TV is not tuned
to any channel. Eventually you notice distinct sounds within the general
background sounds. If you pay very subtle attention to the most subtle of
these distinct sounds you are gently pulled into deeper levels of
meditation. At a certain point you get flushes of endorphins - very
pleasurable but essentially a distraction. Further still you reach very
peaceful states of nothingness where all time and meaning appear to cease.
At this stage there is almost no desire - to continue meditation or to stop,
even to breath.
This is as far as I have gone.
The hardest part is to quiet the mind chatter. The next challenge is to
latch onto an inner sound. If you focus too strongly the sound disappears
and you are left empty. If you focus too lightly, the sound passes you by
and you are again left empty. If you get the focus just right, you are
pulled to a deeper level of meditation - almost like a traveler on a journey
reaches a new land.
At different points I sometimes get insights. I try not to focus on them
since they can pull you back into thought.
I hope this gives you a good picture of my practice. Please let me know if
you want more.
