Vipasana ~ for the laymen

Updated: Jan 6, 2019

A #perspective and understanding after attending a four day #Vipasana session.


Attending a #4 #day session without doing the 10 day session is apparently a no-no, I wasn't aware of this hard soft rule but I had already begun practicing "meditation" on my own at #home. Reading about it and #learning abut the various teachers and #techniques I had been gradually adapting breathing and focusing techniques in my #daily #routine.

Understand its essence. Learn the methods. Adopt the techniques. Implement. No excuses, its as simple as paying attention to your every breathe.

I didn't fixate my self to a fixed #routine, prehaps a lack of #discipline on my end or rather an understanding of something that many sort of seem to miss out on.


To elaborate, I am learning to #play the #guitar and in those moments I find myself focused on the #sounds resonating from the strings vibrating, placement of fingers, posture- these are all necessary to pay #attention to when learning the #instrument if one wants to #improve. In such moments I've found my mind tends less to deviate with #thoughts and #worries- they don't disappear but rather the intervals between thoughts expands. I have similar experiences of "bliss," as I like to refer to them, when #cooking as well. Writing helps me layout my thoughts and be #reflective- gauge at my thought process and at times decipher the reason for said thought and emotion.

To conclude, the four day session of silent meditation from 7 am till 6/7pm [with delicoussssss vegan/veg. food] made evident that the point of such practices are to learn to be conscious, aware, mindful or however else you may choose to describe it not just in that moment of practice but in our daily lives.#Listen more than #talk, be #still and not always carving for some form of #stimulation- consciously or subconsciously, #reflect on who you've become and what has shaped #you and still does. Any #opportunity you get to be still and just sit letting your #body #breathe take full advantage of that privilege- an understated luxury more so- to realize its immense benefits.
