Bryony

Q: is there a difference between thoughts arising and getting distracted by them? For instance, in the counting phases thoughts or images come to my mind and pass away but I am not always distracted by them. I only return to one when I am distracted. Is this right?

Q. I sometimes count and think at the same time while being aware of both.. like in lucid dreaming. Are we suppose to just be aware and not change anything or are we suppose to stop the thinking and only have breathing + awareness?

Thank you for this week I have enjoyed it very much. Looking forward to trying on my own tomorrow.
Vanessa Mead
01:14:05
Q in stage 4, you mentioned trying to cultivate a one-pointedness. can you clarify this please? I focus on breath in through my nose and out through my mouth so I guess this is two-pointedness!
Jus Marl
01:14:15
Oops, QI keep finding myself 'coming to', I think I have drifted off. I'm not sure if there's a solution to this.
Ruth Evans, Publishing Manager
01:16:10
