Today is the new moon Uposatha. I woke up earlier than I usually do this morning. Everything was quiet and calm, I did my puja (with the Eight Precepts instead of Five), let one of the dogs out, was looking through one of my Dhamma books. Things were still quiet, and I kinda just looked over, grabbed my body pillow, folded it in half, sat on it and watched my breath via my abdomen. I had to readjust my posture a few times to get it to where my legs weren't so uncomfortable and I don't know how long I sat, but it was longer than I've ever sat before (I think anyway, it felt like it). I realize now I could have sat longer than I did. I felt at peace and rested when I came out of it. The mind would wander, but I just brought it back to the breath. Now I just have to get a zafu so I can start doing it more regularly. I used to think I couldn't sit because I got so uncomfortable. I realize now as long as I have something under my butt that raises me up above the legs, it's not bad. I've gotten a taste for sitting and quite frankly, I like it. This may be kind of rambled, so I apologize for that. But I just wanted to share.
