in the beginning i used alarms, then i just go with the flow and stop when i m bored
now i decide how long and do not use alarms but think/decide the time in my mind before starting
so if thinking/deciding 30 min or 25 min, somehow i open my eyes at the exact time (1-2 min deviation)
is this common? or should it be avoided since it can be an ego trap? and how do you people set the timing?
sometimes in groups we follow the lead who has a bell , he rings in the start of the session
and rings it at the end, so we dont need to think of timing...feedback appreciated
lots of metta
