Sit for 15 minutes without moving, not even an eyelash. If you itch DO NOT scratch. Observe it instead. Write a one-page double spaced reflection paper sitting still for 15 minutes. Was it easy or difficult?
Why do we dream?
Think of a dream that you have had. When you meditate this week, ask for your unconscious and conscious mind to communicate and reveal any deeper meaning of the dream to decipher the symbolism contained within it. What did you experience in your meditation and what do you think the dream is trying to uncover? Perhaps research the main symbols in your dream according to documented dream analysis and theories. Reflection can be any length. (hint: Carl Jung is a well respected theorist on dreams).
How does a person stay centered within 15 minutes without moving, not even an eyelash? This was the question that entered my mind as soon as I read this weekâ€™s assignment. Should I keep my eyes open or closed? I decided to keep my eyes open first, and in just a few seconds, my eyes blinked, and so I failed the first try. I decided to try it once again, this time with my eyes closed. A minute into the meditation I realized that my chest has been moving the entire time.
