Linka Lipski
01:36:31
Q. Are ideas (eg, creative or artistic ideas, how to communicate something) and reflection on the world, considered to be the ‘positive I want’ realm that was on the bottom right of the path?
Andrea

Q: how do you deal with when intense emotions comes up during meditation?
Jess

Q Do you have advice for working with two seemingly opposing hindrances that occur at the same time, particularly anxiety/restlessness and sloth/torpor?
Philippa Henley
01:37:42
Q are you saying that all the hindrances are covering up the suffering and joy that lies beneath them? Because we cannot face this ?
Julie
01:38:09
there was a book called' living with chronic illness and pain this morning by breathworks and written by videlamala
Linka Lipski
01:38:18
Q. What path would it be when we just enjoy thinking for thinking during meditation? Is the aim to be with the thinking as if lucid dreaming where both thoughts and awareness of the thoughts co-occur throughout the experience?
Kerry Jolley
01:38:54
Q. Is it possible to take the whole journey you explained with the path diagram within a single mediation practice or is this something where you progressively walk the path over time. Or both?
Andrew
01:40:35
Q. when you reach a state of emptiness in meditation is it best to sit with it or just continue watching the breath etc?
Barbara Conn
01:40:44
how do you observe your feelings without framing them in language? I find it very hard not to think in language and then move towards analysis of feelings.
Matthew Magee
01:42:04
Q: I think it’s really fascinating that pretty much universally such things as these hindrances exist in the mind — I wonder why they exist or what purposes they serve, be that evolutionary or, if you like, theological purposes. I am think along the lines of the need for obstruction or resistance in order for us to have something to transcend/overcome. Any thoughts? Or rather anything thoughts on what the spiritual path would be if they didn’t exist.
Matthew Magee
01:42:56
Or human life at all — without difficulty, suffering, something to overcome/transcend/work with

iIt is possible to experiment Dana states of mind in on
Klara Bender
01:50:51
QHow do you navigate the subtle line between drifting and sinking? I often find myself sinking and once I realise the settlement I tend to overcorrect and drift. I find it particularly difficult during days of hardship when I loose subtlety and pull the strings of my thoughts in aggressive rather than mindful manner.
Suvarnantara
01:51:52
