Shortly after I woke up this morning I thought of the fire in the hara. And felt it there. I’m not putting a specific visual to it; that’s come up on it’s own. Yesterday it was a candle flame. This morning it was broader, an image of flames contained in a small 3-legged cauldron. Felt it for 5 hours during the day until I ate lunch, then it faded out. I carry alot of tension in my shoulders & between my shoulder blades. While this was going on my shoulders were dropped, upper body relaxed. The habitual tension returned in the afternoon though. The facial mask was relaxed. Interacting with the public, I had to remind myself to put some expression in it at times, smile & keep the eyes alive. I hate appearing like a “special spiritual person”, like a zombie for christ, buddha or whatever. Shit was flying in all directions at work, didn’t stress me like it might’ve. I drank way more water than I usually do, continual thirst… this all was unexpected. The formal session happened as soon I got home. The movements felt different. Heat was coming out of my palms, felt like some kinda substance. Feeling the fire was like before, except it was broader still… like a campfire or something. Tomorrow nothing might happen. I think I have beginner’s mind with it now. I’m gonna do another session later tonight. I’m basically flying by the seat of my pants, ain’t got no map.
