Meditating Day 4

Wednesday, November 09, 2011

I had to plug my phone in today to recharge so I chose to use the computer timer again. Well, I'm very tired this morning so I thought I'll just do 9 minutes. Well I should know better than to try and cheat the meditation gods. I turned on the speakers, set the screen timer to 9:00 minutes and promised myself I wouldn't peek. Geeesh, after awhile, in fact quite awhile, I thought this 9 minutes feels extremely long today. So...I peeked....and there was the timer screen flashing "quietly" at 0:00. Why didn't I hear the beeper? I don't know what techy glitch happened but I managed to meditate for 12:00 minutes by accident!

Chattering mind to begin with included thoughts of:
book club tonight
spark people
let thoughts float by...hey that's a thought about thoughts...this is tricky

I did notice that the times I saw the speck against the back of my eyelids, I felt more focused and for those moments I just "was", no extra thoughts happening.
