I take the train to and from work now. It’s a wonderful little bit of my day that I’m learning to really enjoy. Why you ask? Cause it gives me 35 minutes twice a day to meditate! If I can’t meditate at work, this is the next best thing. 🙂
Anyway, onto my post…
I was meditating on the way home from work tonight and a thought popped into my head regarding the feeling that I get I call “Mind Expansion”. It actually feels like your mind is really expanding. But I came to realize what that sensation really is, because I noticed it tonight at the same time this “other” thing occurred.
What occurred was a 90%+ reduction in my five physical senses. Well, I was ignoring them. But at that exact moment, I began to feel that “Mind Expansion” sensation happen. I never really consciously put two and two together about this.
The “Mind Expansion” sensation is also the beginning of removing yourself from this physical reality. Point Consciousness. From there, all of consciousness is your playground. 🙂
What a fantastic observation!
& on the topic of train meditation… up until recently, for two years i had a 1hr train commute twice daily, and I will say that my most profound experiences came to in this setting. However, something about meditating amidst caos (ironically effective) has made it difficult to achieve the same in silence.
Oh, and for any other commuters looking to kick it up a notch, I cannot say enough about throwing some Gamma or Hyper Gamma binaural tones into the mix! Something about the combination of the Hz and the movement that will without fail leave you with no sense of time/space or gravity. 🙂
Great posts.. I do love your blog!
Thanks a lot Jamie!
And thank you too, for the wonderful advice about using the Binaruals on the train. I think I’ll give that a shot.
I’ve been just listening to the radio. 🙂
I’ve got a couple self-made Binaural Beats that work really well for me, I think I’ll give them a shot on Monday! 😀
