Myanmar Meditation

1
00:00:00,020 –> 00:00:02,700
what I’ve been at the minute ation

2
00:00:02,700 –> 00:00:06,509
Center for seven days now and there’s no

3
00:00:06,509 –> 00:00:09,389
talking so this is well I have broken

4
00:00:09,389 –> 00:00:14,820
that rule thought I’d take a few minutes

5
00:00:14,820 –> 00:00:17,490
I’m not supposed to be doing this put to

6
00:00:17,490 –> 00:00:19,789
report that’s been quite challenging

7
00:00:19,789 –> 00:00:23,640
waking up at 3am every day no eating

8
00:00:23,640 –> 00:00:26,580
after 12 noon and meditating 14 hours a

9
00:00:26,580 –> 00:00:30,300
day but those aren’t the things that

10
00:00:30,300 –> 00:00:32,040
really bother me it’s little things like

11
00:00:32,040 –> 00:00:34,380
standing in line forever for lunch and

12
00:00:34,380 –> 00:00:37,050
lunches are quite good and kicked we

13
00:00:37,050 –> 00:00:39,540
have our lunch at ten-thirty come it

14
00:00:39,540 –> 00:00:43,079
takes about 40 minutes to line up and

15
00:00:43,079 –> 00:00:45,809
walk over and get the lunch on your

16
00:00:45,809 –> 00:00:49,170
plate interesting but um it’s a

17
00:00:49,170 –> 00:00:50,910
beautiful setting and I’ve had some

18
00:00:50,910 –> 00:00:54,030
realizations here and I have slowed down

19
00:00:54,030 –> 00:00:59,820
and feel much calmer and I highly

20
00:00:59,820 –> 00:01:01,590
recommend doing it I’m here three more

21
00:01:01,590 –> 00:01:05,750
days and it’s been very beneficial to

22
00:01:05,750 –> 00:01:09,210
have no distractions no internet no

23
00:01:09,210 –> 00:01:13,710
phone calling but I’m starting to look

24
00:01:13,710 –> 00:01:15,509
forward to getting back to my life on

25
00:01:15,509 –> 00:01:18,360
the outside it’s just a little bit like

26
00:01:18,360 –> 00:01:20,070
prison but it’s a lot prettier and

27
00:01:20,070 –> 00:01:22,200
people are very nice and you know it was

28
00:01:22,200 –> 00:01:25,590
fun today the cleaning I cleaned the

29
00:01:25,590 –> 00:01:28,590
altar and was the tallest person so I

30
00:01:28,590 –> 00:01:29,970
could clean at the very top of the

31
00:01:29,970 –> 00:01:33,960
Buddha picture and it was so appreciated

32
00:01:33,960 –> 00:01:35,939
and I enjoyed doing it and everything

33
00:01:35,939 –> 00:01:37,439
looked glowing and beautiful because

34
00:01:37,439 –> 00:01:39,509
everyone was cleaning and it was a

35
00:01:39,509 –> 00:01:43,380
beautiful group effort so everything’s

36
00:01:43,380 –> 00:01:47,780
good the birds are singing happiness

37
00:01:47,780 –> 00:01:52,399
from here in Myanmar

38
00:01:54,000 –> 00:01:56,790
so I’m leaving the center right now and

39
00:01:56,790 –> 00:02:01,020
I feel pretty high from it I met

40
00:02:01,020 –> 00:02:02,910
beautiful people and we didn’t even

41
00:02:02,910 –> 00:02:04,620
really say that much but you can feel

42
00:02:04,620 –> 00:02:06,150
everything about a person in their

43
00:02:06,150 –> 00:02:09,508
energy field around them and lovely

44
00:02:09,508 –> 00:02:11,700
women I think that was one of the best

45
00:02:11,700 –> 00:02:13,590
things about it the beautiful people

46
00:02:13,590 –> 00:02:15,360
that were all meditating me around

47
00:02:15,360 –> 00:02:20,790
around me the woman from Japan and her

48
00:02:20,790 –> 00:02:22,530
practice was so strong and helped mine

49
00:02:22,530 –> 00:02:26,610
and I think the hardest thing for me was

50
00:02:26,610 –> 00:02:29,820
slowing down but I feel a little bit

51
00:02:29,820 –> 00:02:32,000
more mindful about that and I’m going to

52
00:02:32,000 –> 00:02:35,459
I’m committing to keep up my meditation

53
00:02:35,459 –> 00:02:40,140
practice because it’s really helpful so

54
00:02:40,140 –> 00:02:44,220
I’m off to Yangon and then on to Nepal
