Before having meditation in class, I felt so exhausted because I just woke up twenty minutes before the class. I usually wake up 30 minutes before class. I was breathing heavily and was able to feel my empty stomach. Usually when we wake up we are mostly in bad mood. When Professor was giving directions for meditation in class, we all closed our eyes first. This made me feel a little nauseous but when I started to take deep breathe it felt so soothing. at first I could feel my hunger and then it felt so peaceful as I started breathe in and out. It felt like all of my sorrowness were coming out and I started to feel fresh and calm. As long it was extending, it felt more peaceful and I thought I’m in another world, where everything is so silent as I like. There was darkness since we closed eyes, I loved it because I love to be in a dark room as mine. I thought this could be a good idea to feel relaxed whenever I feel exhausted I should try this by my own. And I do too but to be honest not in the morning, I do anytime I feel like I need it. But we all should practice this meditation in order to be calm ourselves because it helps us focus on anything that’s important.
Thanks for sharing these thoughts Sofia, and so glad to hear that meditating brought you peace!). This comment belongs in Class Discussion #7 on Meditation, where folks have been sharing their experiences meditating. Could you copy/paste it there?
