i think i understand daily practice, but sitting meditation in the vipassana tradition usually uses such methods as mindfulness of breathing and what-not, right? but in vipassana we do not want too enter jhana. is this correct? if this is correct, what do we do? just keep mindful of whatever arises? are there stages?
is there any where in the pali canon that this method is taught?
The time would not pass. Somebody was playing with the clocks, and not only the electronic clocks but the wind-up kind too. The second hand on my watch would twitch once, and a year would pass, and then it would twitch again.
There was nothing I could do about it. As an Earthling I had to believe whatever clocks said -and calendars.”
