This is a good thread (and a good forum!!!) so I wish to resurrect it.
I aim to start meditating for 1 hour every evening - 30 minutes walking and 30 minutes sitting. Maybe even 50 minutes walking and 10 minutes sitting (I'm pretty restless these days). Maybe even just an hour of walking meditation
- As long as there is an hour dedicated to mindfulness practice.
I would like to have a set time for this meditation period to establish routine; let's say 5:00PM - if I am unable on a particular day to meditate at that time I will make it as close to that time as possible.
I feel like a total beginner again - Which could in fact be a blessing.
This forum was where my Buddhist journey really started taking off in the direction of "community" - So, it is kind of my primary refuge in terms of Buddhist companions. Even though I am a regular at the Buddhist Society of WA, it is largely thanks to Dhamma Wheel that I have the understanding (both the theoretical and the practical) of Dhamma that I have today.
Though, admittedly, I have stopped putting that understanding into practice and hence the reason I return - To reconnect with my fellow travelers on this sometimes seemingly lonely path.
Much Metta to you all,
