Thank you @rightviewftw and @Hiheyhello. It is very valuable information and help.
With advice from this thread, I am getting used to have the short breath, or rather ultra short sudden sigh!.

These Suttas are very complicated and it is rather loosely how i interperet it. This is certainly not perfect info but i think it is more or less correct actually.
Thank you, yes it was helpful even though it is not perfect. At least, when I see the interpretation, i can get a feel of "sense of direction" that I should be looking for.

I've had a similar experience and it is temporary.... It is not a result of wrong practice.
It is a bit comfort to know it will go away one day! Well, yeah another expectation!. The funny thing is, when it is not there, i suddenly start looking for it now :P, "oh, the sigh did not come yet!"

Ah, pleasant vedana from seeing your post :) -- I hope you enjoy the book and find inspiration and guidance for practice like I have.
"...the practice is essentially a practice, and not a theory to be idly discussed...right view leaves unanswered many questions about the cosmos and the self, and directs your attention to what needs to be done to escape from the ravages of suffering." Thanissaro Bhikkhu, On The Path.
