Meditation Practice Status
I've been going strong for a month or so now in meditating for 15 minutes every morning. I can definitely see a difference in my ability to focus more on my breath and am finding larger gaps between thoughts. That's not everytime though. There are still days where I find myself bouncing from thought to thought with teeny-tiny gaps between thoughts.
I'm definitely beyond the guided meditation stage and am ready for silence. Troy and I sleep to music at night and I leave it on in the morning as we get ready for work. I usually leave the music playing softly while I meditate. Sometimes I become completely unaware of it. Others, I use it as a focus to keep my meditation on track. On the rare opportunity to sit in silence, I do enjoy it greatly.
Another thing I have discovered is that 15 minutes is not very long after all.
