Thanks Bhante, I'm looking forward to trying this out :D

"And so, because this Teaching is so different from what Westerners are accustomed to, they will try to adapt the Teaching to their own framework. What they need to learn to do is not to adapt the Teaching to their own point of view but to adapt their own point of view to the Teaching. This is called saddhá, or faith, and it means giving oneself to the Teaching even if the Teaching is contrary to one’s own preconceived notions of the way things are."- Ven Bodhesako

:thumbsup: Cool.

The Buddha knew about some of this.

Seven Antidotes to Drowsiness:
1. Change one‘s attitude and make meditation more dynamic.
2. Reflect on inspiring passages of the Dhamma.
3. Recite passages aloud.
4. Physical stimulation, including rubbing the ears.
5. Washing one‘s face.
6. Looking at a light.
7. Brisk walking meditation.
(from Anguttara Nikaya 7.58)
