Noticing touch

Postby purple planet » Tue Dec 25, 2012 8:30 am

I started to note touch instead of breathing what do you think ?

and it started to take over my labeling and i label breathing as touch and lots of stuff as touch and also walking meditation - is it good to note mainly touch ?

another mini question - one of my problems from the start was how to label pressing a button - i know the label is onlt a tool but still fot me its very important

so how do you label pressing a button - pushing ? pressure?
Please send merit to my dog named Mika who has passed away - thanks in advance

Get the wanting out of waiting

What does womanhood matter at all, when the mind is concentrated well, when knowledge flows on steadily as one sees correctly into Dhamma. One to whom it might occur, ‘I am a woman’ or ‘I am a man’ or ‘I’m anything at all’ is fit for Mara to address. – SN 5.2

yes indeed :) :anjali:

it just happens, I better not give my inner monkey any toys to think about, I'm fine with awareness of breathing.

If it comes to meditation technicques generally I'm not a big shot. I get pulled away to quickly, it's quite hard for me to stay with my metta meditation. Maybe that's why initially I felt more at home in the zen tradition and "just sitting".

Hopefully I can expand to more refined techniques one day, because certainly I understand the benefits that come from it.

Labelling worked while practicing Jongrom quite good, but if I sit I better just sit.
