Observe and Recognize (Practice Notes)

Postby twelph » Sat Mar 10, 2012 6:05 am

I thought it might be nice to share a list of things that we constantly find ourselves examining during meditation and daily life. Items on my list usually come from Dhamma talks and my own experiences. I don't make an effort to incorporate everything at once, but just having these things viewable as a reminder has helped my practice deepen substantially. My goal here is to hopefully acquire some new ideas :).

Intention (Go all the way!)
(Not)Wanting
Feeling Tone (Un)Pleasant/Neutral
Quality of awareness
Effort (Too much or little?)
Body (Relaxed?)
Repetitive Thoughts
Stories
Narratives
Views
