a leaf sprouts in Georgia
Hi everyone, I'm kokuu (empty sky), and very thankful to have found this group. I've been reading about Buddhism and Zen for a little over a year, and have been sitting on my own for about the same amount of time.
Currently my practice is about exploring the heartbeat. I notice that if I start with breath counting, somewhere along the 10 minute mark, my heartbeat becomes all consuming, like a drumbeat, and I just follow it. The breath counting falls away, and there is a total body experience. Afterwards, I tend to see that rhythm and heartbeat everywhere. (Hope that makes sense, very difficult to put into words!)
Anyway, I am enjoying the talks by Jundo, and following the posts.
