Discussion of Samatha bhavana and Jhana bhavana.
Experiences like this in meditation are quite common and not indicative of jhana.
Yeah I have that experience almost every time I meditate for approximately 40 minutes to an hour or over. Sometimes I feel expanding once, and then later again more so. It's just focused awareness, deep relaxation. It's a good sign for meditation!

It's cold and alone, hopeless.
Until it blooms above.
