« on: July 04, 2011, 06:28:57 AM »

Im spending the time fishing with my dad and walking in nature, eating well, sleeping well and meditating (off course).

Yo, pike! "Petri Heil", man! The one thing I really miss since I became a vegetarian ... fishing ...

(so ... we have to wait for two weeks to start the recording session ... but we won't forget!  ;D )

Metta to you and your parents, enjoy!

Very good! If you want to change your parents, you have to get mom on your side.
I had to learn that, too ... ;)

My mother meditated with me today as well. I asked her how it felt. She said that at one stage she lost herself, only the breath was there and complete darkness. She experienced no-self after 2nd meditation session. She is an ortodox christian btw. I explained to her that Prayer is fine but sitting in silence is beneficial too. In Prayer we talk to God, in Meditation God talks to us. She never thought like this before.

Thanks Cole :)

Thank you for responding :)

She sat with me today also :) for 20 minutes. She experienced some black invinsible line from nose down to feet separating the left side from the right side. She experienced the breath being on this black invincible line. Each time she would get lost in thoughts she would remember what i told her (she sais) to bring the awareness back to the breathing which she sees going on on this black line (no visualisation though eyes keep still).

Im very much pleased with her practice :)
