Friday, October 8
For this morning's meditation, I used the golden light metta visualization taught by Leigh and Ayya Khema. In contrast to the standard method which uses the phrases, the visualization led fairly quickly to a comparatively quiet mind. I think it was access concentration, with some piti and sukha.
For the next several days I would like to experiment with this mehtod exclusively for my sittings. It seems like a great way to bypass the usual antics of the monkey-mind.
I'm left with a really nice afterglow today.
(Too bad I had to stop to pee, or who knows where it would have gone.)
