Pattern of meditation awareness There are essentially two choices in how you choose to focus your awareness during meditation practice. Firstly is the technique taught by Goenka; which is to follow your awareness over a gross sensation area until you feel subtle sensations. When you then move your awareness further on. The second way is to hold your awareness on an area with subtle sensations and when they stop changing; you then move your awareness on.
Meditation is defined as the conscious or awareness process of increasing energy while dissolving resistance. As the level of energy increases; there is a co-responding reduction in the level of resistance. Consequently awareness will rise. Gaining maturity in meditation practice is the only way to achieve a completely conscious life. This means that you come to know and understand how life works!
Yes these interesting meditation observations can be confirmed by anyone; who meditates with the discipline required to achieve the same level of meditating maturity.
Energy follows thought is a demonstration that insight meditation is a dissolving process.
For all those people who start serious meditation too late in life. They will have no possibility to achieve enlightenment; before the current incarnation is over! They will need to wait until their next incarnation; before this same opportunity will present itself once again.
