Like The Pleasure of Not Having a Toothache
Wow. Today is the first time in weeks, possibly months, when I've had a session with Chris and didn't feel awful afterward. I didn't feel like coming home and crawling into bed, and I didn't feel like I "deserved" to come home and bury my mind in forgetfulness and distraction via comix or movies or some other media soporific.
I've been staying really close to the breath throughout the day, not giving any mindmovement time enough to gather force in a dangerous. Meditated for a good 2+ hours this morning, first metta, then sweeping.
