Normally I meditate sitting on a chair or on a cushion but today I decided to mix it up and try the couch. I have been reluctant to do this because I had assumed that the couch would be considered a luxurious extreme, thus missing the Middle Way. I didn't fall asleep though, there was a bit of dullness at first but as I got settled in my mindfulness got very sharp and had one of the deepest meditations yet. Has anyone else had success meditating on a couch? Is this not the right way to approach meditation or is it okay?
Four types of letting go:
1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things
