Heart and Mind

Where members are free to take ideas from the Theravāda Canon out of the Theravāda framework. Here you can question rebirth, kamma (and other contentious issues) as well as examine Theravāda's connection to other paths

Heart and Mind

Postby Sanjay PS » Thu Oct 03, 2013 4:04 pm

When doing 10 day courses ( retreats ) i have found , as the days go by , any thought that arises in the mind, simultaneously appears to start with a sensation within the heart ,sometimes the sensation becomes amplified and is felt within, and, or over the body .

Once while taking rest in the night time at the centre, the heart beat became acutely feeble , yet pronounced , in that, it seemed to slowly arise, take the slightest pause , and gradually fade away , and cycled this way , the lub and the dub of the beat ( systolic and diastolic ) , the mental framework of the mind was of deep content.

Its difficult to feel this in day to day living , and unwholesome conditions can hijack the feeling of a subtle sensation while in the heart :shrug:
The Path of Dhamma

The path of Dhamma is no picnic . It is a strenuous march steeply up the hill . If all the comrades desert you , Walk alone ! Walk alone ! with all the Thrill !!
