It kind of goes like this, these five bases are the tip of the nose, the middle of the forehead, the very top center of the skull the middle of the brain and the middle of the chest near the sternum. A series of trips back and for forth starting at the nose and going to the forehead, and back to the nose for a specific number of times, then from the forehead to the top of the head, and on and on.
I did this the entire run, I think i broke the concentration twice the whole run. That is quite nice to me. If I consider what Friday and Saturday were like, this run was really very different. No unwholesome thoughts, thus keeping the various ugliness/fear/greed/craving, long list to follow.... where it was not arising.
The run itself was a good workout but I really feel tired after CELTA then yesterdays hard mental work and sun and then I didn't sleep well do to bad food choices last night, so really feeling lethargic but at the same time, not feeling anything, or trying to.
The interesting thing was when I worked the area from mid brain to chest/sternum, after the run I felt like my chest was on fire and that I had burned the inside of my lungs. Still as I write this, it feels the same. Really and interesting sign.
But, is all of this just opium for the mind? Or is it helping?
