Date: August 15
Type: Meditation on inner sounds (with earplugs)
Time: 07:20 a.m.
Duration: 71 minutes (open)
Posture: Seated on chair
Body: Eyes closed, tongue tip to pallet, hands on knees-index finger
Condition: Darkened room. Two candles. Incense. Essential Oil - (Bergamot
+ water on burner). Bell.
Mind Chatter: Medium.
Waves of bliss: one (slight).
Experience: Good session - Satisfying
Result: Was not sure if I would continue with yesterday's exploration of
sense awareness. I "went with the flow" and was simply open to whatever
happened. Good session, a lot of exploration and discovery. Detected that
mind chatter went in waves. From periods of high activity to periods of low
activity (when I made no attempt to still the mind). I noticed that mind
chatter seemed to be linked to some activity in the brain that corresponded
to the volume and complexity of internal sounds and not necessarily the
level of physical relaxation. This prompts me to believe that our minds
could be racing under the surface even when we appear physically and
I forgot to unplug the telephone so the very faint sound of the phone
ringing brought me out of my session.
Note: I find that meditation is an excellent way of understanding how my
mind works, especially what may be happening under the surface.
