Re: Meditation and dreams

Got your point! May be I'll start focusing on the precepts or reading more sutras and have an eye in my daily activities. You know, the most difficult thing is to practice in your daily life. You may "enjoy" the whole session of meditation and aware of your mind when it drifts away, however in our d...

Re: Meditation and dreams

Lately, I am doing 1 hour of Goenka's vipassana and 1 hour of anapanasati in the afternoon. Should I stop working on anapanasati? Better suggestions?

Re: Meditation and dreams

Thank you for your answer. But I am still very concerned about how to revert the unfavorable things from happening if the indications of my dreams are NOT good? The more I practice, the more dreams appear (but at the same time, it's true what you said, my mind is much calmer during meditation than b...

Hello! I haven't been practicing meditation for 1 hour daily for a couple of months and since I am having daily meditation, I begin to have dreams that indicate future happenings. They may not be exactly the SAME but they are signs that correspond EXACTLY or almost exactly for what is going to happe...

Re: Unstable Mental Object

It's very hard to find a live teacher here in South America. There are many teachers that teach meditation, but not the Buddhist meditation like anapanasati. I was told that when working on anapanasati, you focus on the breathing touching the upper lip and that's the place called "mental object". Am...

I 've tried to focus and I have passed the stages of torpor (although sometimes it might appears), I know the mental object is there, I can figure it but this is not stabl...

So the way to overcome this kind of envy: "Now suppose the thought were to occur to him, 'I am in love with this woman, my mind ensnared with fierce desire, fierce passion.

Re: Jealousy

Re: Jealousy

When you look at it, you will see that this jealousy comes out due to causes and condition. Because it comes from causes and condition, it is just like a mountain eruption. When the condition and cause is match, the mountain will just explode. I looked at it, but was defeated by this monster. I try...
