Physicality and Thoughts
Tonight was different in that my breath was not blocked at the level of my throat. But I noticed all kinds of pain and discomfort. My legs held much tension and went numb. I should sit not in half lotus until I am more limber and less sore from working out. I did have moments of recognized comfort in my arms and was able to spread it to my legs and back for a few moments.
I found it difficult to direct thought without being sucked into thinking in general. But I did notice and kept returning to my breath. When I first started meditation practice I observed moments when I felt shaky, like I would explode. That occurred last night and tonight.
