day 11

This time, early morning meditation – lying down. The lack of routine is not ideal, but it’s the first week of a new job so I’m giving myself a break. Meditating for 30 minutes every day is enough of a commitment in itself. So rather than lying awake in bed, why not use the time? Tiredness probably helped with focus, in an odd way. They do say on intensive sesshins, the tiredness that comes with night-time meditation can be beneficial. And it’s never bad to try out different approaches.

Discipline: 7/10.
