Advise please - Nimittas appear around me without trouble. But for me the first is murky, and thick, but obvious. And it is "encompassing". I know the others beyond the first, in succession. I am completely at ease with my insight and have experienced some pleasure from the first. But I am also completely new to this. I have read that the best nimitta is circular, bright, and clear. I read this from Ajahn Brahmavamso. Is this accurate? What direction would be workable? I am assuming the strength and quality of the nimitta is completely workable. But Brahmavasmo mentions different ways to develop. I'm actually not even concerned; or eager to "make the nimitta stronger" - so to speak. I would only like to know if I am on a good "track". Or if there are some fundamental misconceptions in what I am experiencing here. Thank you in advance.
A wise man once asked an audience, "why do the ignorant shrug their shoulders?"
No one in the audience knew. They shrugged their shoulders, however the wise man only laughed and shook his head. He didn't explain any further.
