change
« on: December 20, 2013, 10:16:23 PM »
Curious how meditation works. For many years I've been meditating and change has been small but yet there's been small but noticable change. This year it all seems to just come together and change has accelerated and now I can't help but smile whenever I get enough into the present moment. I also notice just how enjoyable it really is when the mind goes silent for a moment. But what made me post was how I just a while ago just saw my hands moving without me "commanding" them to move and all I could do was laugh and find it all silly  :D I've also found joy, pain and sadness like I've never felt before this year.

All this has also changed how I see meditation, I used to think one had to pretty much force focus and keep it still enough for long enough to get results. And it does kind of work but it's most definitely not the right way to do it...  Kindness, love and gentle guidance is the way to go  :angel:

Finding Ajahn Brahm from the link on the front page has been very helpful too.

And last to quote a monologue that I feel fitting from bablyon 5, my favorite tv-series.

"The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation.
No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born in pain. "
