onwards and upwards...

Inspired by the excellent ' Mastering the Core Teachings of the Buddha' by Daniel Ingram, I've moved my mediation practice up a level since the start of June. I'm now managing two sessions of twenty minutes a day.

This afternoon I noticed a real difference in my sitting and experienced a relaxed awareness at a depth I've not encountered in the past. Ingram's book is pithy and goal-orientated which makes a nice change from other, more vague, mediation teachings I've come across in the past. I like it how he basically says (to paraphrase) 'if you want this then do this, otherwise forget it'.

I've only glanced at the book on Vince's recommendation (http://mystictraining.com/blog/), but it sure seems both interesting and inspiring.
