Starting this Blog
My intention is first to create a detailed Journal of my meditation. It is published in case it is of interest. The target reader is future me! That said, I do plan to track its readership, and to add a commenting system in the hope it will inspire me and others to continue.
I should also add that the intention to start this journal came while reading “The Mind Illuminated”. I’m not in any way affiliated with this book, but I will recommend it for those wanting to take a deeper look at the mechanics of meditation.
About the Author
An overrun 30 something male with too many commitments. I’ve been meditating sporadically for around 18 months prior to starting this blog. I’m also very interested in the ideas of Buddhism. I may inject some Buddhist ideas in places, however, this is not intended to be a recommendation of Buddhism in any way. I also won’t be going into my personal circumstances too much, except where it is specifically relevant to my meditation.
