Review

I came into this meditation in a slightly impatient state, as I had been waiting for the day to begin. I was otherwise fairly relaxed and looking forward to sitting. I started in the same way as usual, sitting and briefly scanning my attention through the body. I got comfortable and noted my initial states.

In the early stages, my mind was particularly susceptible to wandering. It felt a little pre-occupied with planning the work day and what to write in this Journal! It often drifted completely away, but at other times this planning came into my attention alongside the awareness of breath, not always being able to become a full distraction.

It occurred to me that planning what to write in this journal might always be a distraction, however, I made the intention to carry on, and to further publish this with no clinging to the results. Shortly after this intention, I noticed what seemed like the room outside getting brighter. As if the sun had come out from behind the clouds but I was staring up with my eyes closed. It was a pure white light, which felt mildly significant as it quite directly followed what I felt were some unselfish intentions. It remained for around 2-3 minutes and the experience was pleasant, leaving behind a small but noticeable amount of positive energy.

Continuing on I remained having regular distractions. Most often planning related. As the meditation started to enter the last ten minutes they were more often competing with the breath for attention, instead of being able to divert the full attention away.

After the meditation, I felt the small amount of pleasant positive energy remained, and I felt ready to begin the day.
