    When I Struggle.

     Sometimes I find it very hard to meditate. My back will start to hurt or my nose will itch. There seems to be something ridiculous that manages to distract me. Then I went on my martial arts camp and in the middle of the night we were all woken up and sent out to the...

    In the beginning of the 1st month of my

    meditation journey, my party friends disappeared one by one. We haven't met, we haven't communicated at all, they're alive but they're mysteriously gone from me. Last party was fun as always, there was nothing awful. I haven't done any destructive habit to myself ever since. If...

    I've started meditating

    for pretty close to a year now, and started because I heard it increases self control among other things. In fact I felt some pressure in between my eyes a few weeks ago and now I believe I've opened my third eye or a more scientific way of saying it is decalcifying your pineal...

    Teaching What I Need to Know

    Believe it or not, I actually "teach" meditation.  It's an intro class in which different forms are covered in 6 weeks to give "students" the opportunity to try out techniques and find one that works for them.  It's a small group that used to...
