Try 5 years m8
Vipassana is not about feeling pain and/or attempting to let it goWow. Have you done this kind of meditation every day for 5 years?
I was going to make a joke seeing as the concept is about feeling pain then attempting to let it go and say in response to your try 5 years, Try 47 years, (my life. ) . But its not funny. And if i even imagined it was true I deserve a special session with Sadhguru to be punished by his carefuly articulated influencing tone of BS. (as for the first time ever im pretty sure he’s a fraud)
Im glad things are getting more positive again man. You’ve talked about some really useful and interesting things there.My mood was at a bit of a low point for the first half of this year, despite a couple of high points (My first Glastonbury experience was certainly a high point) but the rest has been a bit of a downer. My creativity took a heavy hit as well, didn't get a whole lot done musically in the first half of this year, and what I did do took forever to finish.
So I've once again started to seriously cut down my social media usage for the past few months.
I would have liked to delete it all completely to be honest, but still need accounts for music promotion and the like.
I've taken to reading physical books again. I've always got a couple of audio books on the go, which is great for the work commute, when in bed and pottering around the kitchen, but I find that with idle hands (especially on my downtime in work) I end up doom scrolling at the same time.
So with reading a physical book, it's a more active experience than an audio book (which can be played in the background) meaning it requires your complete attention.
It's worked a treat actually, I've limited my social media usage to mostly music/promotional stuff for the most part and am tearing through my rather backed up reading list!
Definitely felt an improvement in my mood and creativity seems to be slowly returning with a load of new projects in the works!
