Practicing just last year gave rise to some questions. Why when we started to meditate, we begin just being "the observer", that judgement become less and less. And sometimes, I felt that my mind no longer thinks. It just sits there.
Another observation is that by practicing meditation, we begin to appreciate "silence" - I no longer enjoy in going to the mall and found parks are more attractive to me. Any place where I my mind find tranquility.
Lastly, I realized that my view of death is far different when I was a christian. The fear is gone, fear of a higher "Supreme Powerful God" will punish me for what I've done wrong, and send me to "eternal hell" My wife was a little "shocked" when I said - I no longer believe in a creator God, and that it is "we" that can determine our future existences. I am just being honest. I can no longer process that there is God capable of sending His own children to eternal damnation. If there is God who is compassion and merciful- I don't see any reason of condemnation just because we didn't just make it right this time.
Anybody who had the same experience?
