01:07:31
Sometimes when I meditate I come across ideas/thoughts that feel important/profound (to me!) and I'm tempted to break and reach for a piece of paper. Generally I just try to remember them but I worry about the trade off of the effort of remembering vs letting those ideas go. Any tips?
Tony
01:07:32

Sara King

Thank you.
quinn
01:07:32
the difference between making more effort and making less effort was remarkable. thought i wasn’t making a good enough effort to concentrate and then when you said make less effort, it really felt like a far deeper connection with the breath. not a question but just want to share
Julian Gosliga
01:07:35

Jess
01:08:58
Q I'd be interested in your thoughts about when Buddhist imagery arises in the mind when we are trying to focus on something like the breath. Would you say this is the mind bringing something useful in, perhaps subconsciously, or is this another form of distraction? (I imagine there is no black and white answer to this though!)
Dave Rosser
01:09:13
Thank you very much. I wonder why Triratna only teach 2 methods of meditation. Mindfulness of breathing and meta bhavana.

Or when you said relax the attention,it was at that moment when I realised I had just arrived inthe meditation moment
Robert Rowe
01:12:48
Q, When meditating with eyes shut,, I sometimes see a collection of scenes like a film or a dream unfolding. It feels very distracting. Would sitting with eyes open be a way to get out of this situation?
Orshi Szeverics
01:13:30
Q: Every time I meditate, after 10-15 minutes I notice my head is tilted up and my neck gets stiff. Do you have any advice on that?
