Some of us, after spending our weekend or long holiday, we are more stress and more tired. Logically, We suppose to be more relax during off day. Why are we more stressful and tension? Why can’t our body be at relax and mind be free?
Last weekend, I went for a 2 days retreat. It was excellence gift to relax my body and also enjoy the stillness in mind. Sometimes, our body is so tired yet we don’t even notice or have time to relax and do nothing.
During the retreat, it was the best moment to relax our body. We can sleep well and soundly when we are tired. Our body can enjoy the best healing moment as we are do nothing. Our teacher, Ajahn Brahm, he is full of compassion and also loving kindness. How blessed that we can have such a great master in life!
After we had a great relaxation in our body, we can start to relax our mind, to enjoy the peace, calm and stillness and silence during our meditation session. It was truly awesome!
My personal experience was after we get a good rest, our body was so relax,we can be still in our meditation. Don’t apply force or your strong will in doing meditation, Be compassion and loving-kindness to your body and mind. Normally, I using the method of counting the breath in And out for 10 times. It’s not easy to be fully aware about the 10 times breath in-out as there are too many thoughts arisen in our mind. However, during my retreat, I am treat my body and mind with loving-kindness, I am fully aware with almost all my breath in and out.
How blissful when our mind is in stillness, peace and calm! It was truly amazing!
