Re: Meditation or sleep
- Yo Ahmed,
What you are describing is your
being in contact with your Inner Witness
which has the potential to be aware of your
sensory input, your emotions, and your mind's
changes. This is your "Real Self" that we all
look outside for but is ever available within.
I think this is the significant part of the progress
you have made in your meditation practice. Ease of
concentration and meditation will be ongoing and
available as you persevere with your meditating.
The usual state most people walk around in
is too similar to being asleep and sleepwalking.
Meditation is one of the most valid paths to awakening.
I wish you well.
Peace and blessings,
PS: Every religion is "good" and worth while and
can be seen as "bad" by those whose dreaming while
awake is too similar to a nightmare. Have compassion
for those people for "They know not what they do".

But after 5 to 10 minutes I go to a state which resembles sleep but I am not sure it is sleep.Just my mind goes somewhere which is kind of absence from the scene and I forgot about the meditaion itself.Sometimes I see colors, see kind of dreams.
