I just started meditating a week ago. I’ve been reading And trying to find out more about it. I hear it is effective So I want to keep doing it to see some results. I’m doing breath meditation. Can anyone help me out to give me some insight, or valuable advice for thease so called journies of the mind.
I can willfully flip to a form of consciousness beyond mind. The nearest explanation I can think of is that some chakra has opened within me, but don’t know how the experience is explained by the dharmic schools. It’s not enlightenment because wisdom hasn’t fully awakened, it’s more a realisation of the depth of consciousness through direct experience.
How useful is meditation before a workout and exercise ? Lets say before a very vigorous workout, If I meditate and free my mind. Will be able to control the pain better when exercising. For example, I do the horse stance. (Martial arts stance). I can sit in it for 5 minutes. If I meditate before I do those kind of exercises, will I have the mental strength to do more. Thank you
