Hello fellow practitioners. I started meditating out of desperation in 1998. I suffered from cluster headaches
so bad Demerol wouldn't cover them up. I live in the rural mid-west and basically just bought a book on meditation and began experimenting. The headaches went away shortly afterward never to return. That was just a bonus! My life has changed dramatically since then.
I've tried many different types of meditation but settled on vipassana for whatever reason. It really doesn't matter now.
I don't even really know why I'm here other than to share & learn with others on the path. I don't know anyone personally that meditates at all; so this may be a good venue for me. I picked up a copy of Tricycle magazine the other day. It is a worth while read it seems.
I practice mindfulness whenever I remember and I have reverted to doing one thing at a time anymore; paying more attention to what is unfolding in the moment. I don't read and eat, work and listen to the radio (I work alone) etc.
I just keep working at becoming!
Profundity lies in the silence between the words.
