constant noting

Postby befriend » Tue Jan 01, 2013 3:32 pm

has anyone done this, in the mahasi method, noting your experiences all day long? will the mind get tired? is it only for advanced meditators? thank you, metta, befriend

Constant and continues noting from my understanding is only to be undertaken in intensive retreat type setting and not for use during fast paced modern daily life.. There are others here though that are far more experienced in the mahasi method such as mikez who could shed more light on this topic.

I am also not a practitioner of noting, but I had understood it to be a tool rather than a comprehensive practice. In other words, it can help to reign in the mind, but when it does that the noting is done and one proceeds mindfully with other tools.

Hi this makes me wonder -

when i walk for instance in daily life - is it better to just label -" touching " when hitting the floor - or just note everything ?

because i ue labeling when i meditate - i thought that using a bit labeling in daily life is better - if i can - so when i walk i dont label all moves but just 1 the touching so maybe its better not to label ?
Please send merit to my dog named Mika who has passed away - thanks in advance

There is no unique answer to any technique question. Try some different options and see what works best for you.
