Wow it has been a long time since I've been on here!!
I was just hoping you lovely folks might be able to give me a little guidance on my meditation?
I was just signing up for a retreat and they asked me what meditation I will be focusing on and I realised that I don't know! I'm actaully not really sure what I'm doing now or what I should be focusing on.. I'm a meditation mongrel and I've cherry picked what I like, never had much guidance and so I don't really know what type of meditation I'm doing..
I learnt by doing breathing meditation(concentration?) and found that the zen style of counting on the out breath helped so I did that for a while, then I started getting bliss states and what I think was access concentration and piti (jhana?) but then I got sick with automimmune and the bliss states stopped happening and now I do a little breathing and then just feel my whole body and kind of loose my boundary which I guess is open awareness? I've been quite happy just hanging out in that space but that question has thrown me.. I havent really had any guidance on my meditation in years and now I'm wondering whether It would be helpful to follow a particular style of meditation? Is there something I could be "working" on or some direction that might help? I don't have a teacher and never havel.. I have just done it intuitively so it would be useful to hear your comments.
Thank in advance!
