Day 7 of 30 Day Meditation Challenge

My 7th day coincided with SuperBowl. One of those days when I did not move from my spot until the game was over and realized that I need to get some groceries for the week. Today, for the the first time in this challenge, I split my 30 minute window into 20 and 10 minutes long. I have decided that I will try this strategy once in a while to see if it yields any better results.

The first 20 minutes was quite interesting. If there was one common thread that I figured out in the last 7 days, it is that my body needs more sleep than I am giving it now. I went deep into the practice right away and was quite surprised that some roads (literally) that I traveled on almost 16 years back reappeared in my mind. I haven’t been to that place since 2002 and am still scratching my head on the significance. I also had a new insight about possible reasons why I procrastinate. It was very troubling to face it but at least now, I think (?) I know how it affected me. Sleep and twitches still continued during the practice. However, I am not too concerned about those.

In the the last 10 minutes, I felt too tired and was ready to sleep.

I have been a life long fan of Tom Brady and I felt bad for him for losing the Super Bowl today. I did not get affected as much as I did for his other SB losses. I am not quite sure if its result of meditation or something else.

Today’s tip : Do not resist the insights/ thoughts. As soon as they appear, acknowledge them and go back to thoughtlessness.  A beginner’s book always helps.
