Journal Entry-Eve, November 20 - Eve
- Hi Eve,
Thanks for such a beautiful journal entry. I really enjoyed your
recollection of the holographic image - it was touching.
How did it feel when the image changed between the willow tree and your
room? Was it you doing the shifting or was it out of your control? Has this
happened before? Was there any connection with you as a kid looking at that

Subject: [Meditation Society of America] Journal Entry-Eve, November 20
Date: November 20, 2002
Time: 8:00am, 40 minutes (open)
Position: Sitting on bed, cross-legged, eyes closed, hands resting on
Technique: Body and breath awareness
My concentration was very good today. Mind chatter was pretty low.
Continued with letting my visualization take me where it will. Even
though I don't actually "see" anything, I find this technique easier
to concentrate. I had a double image thing happening of myself
meditating. One was an image of me sitting under a willow tree in
my "garden of Eden" and the other was me sitting in the room where I
was on the bed. It was very subtle and would change back and forth.
I would compare it to those plastic holographic type images where the
picture changes back and forth between two images, depending how you
hold it. I remember having a book when I was a kid that had one of
these on the cover.
I had to shift my position a few times to keep myself comfortable.
When I felt like I was ready, I consciously opened my eyes and ended
my session. Felt very relaxed afterward.

I don't recall noticing a difference in how I felt when the image
would change. At first, the double image just happened, but then I
would consciously do it. I found it helpful in keeping my awareness
in the room. I feel it's a good idea to keep some awareness of my
environment when I am meditating because I think it may help when
trying to experince a meditative awareness throughout the day. I
don't know if this is actually true or not, just seems right to me.

with being a kid. I just mentioned it to help describe the image,
thinking maybe someone else had one of those books too.
