Yesterday, I started to dread to sit down and meditate and that's not the mindset I need to have. So I shortened the time and it just felt much better. Time is not the best metric for this exercise either. I would do well to remember that.

I've stuck to meditating. I did my own solo 20 minute sessions in place of the body scans. Classes start this week and I need to be more diligent about waking early and doing it before anyone gets home. Or else my session will be cut short.

For these last few days, I've been doing 20 minutes of some solo vipassna meditation. It's not easy. Focus on the breath and nothing else is the way to go until I become more proficient. Yet, there is no denying that I'm improving.

I did a solo 20 minute meditation and actually did it. It was freaking hard. The thought stream. Labeling did help. Focusing only on the breath and then allowing choicless awareness to come through sounds like the way to go. I pretty much gave up the breathing and started to chant the mantra 6:16, little did I know I had already been with myself for over 20 minutes. There's no need to give up and beat myself up. I did it and thought I had the lost. But I did it. Like the guy who hit a Home run in moneyball and didn't realize it. Good job man! Josh and I also did a self-compassion meditation last night with Tara brach. The Audio was terrible but the meditation was powerful. What's left of you after you stop judging yourself? Everything you've ever wanted to be is there
