grain of sand

I am now a huge fan of morning meditation. I wasn't sleeping well this morning, and after washing dishes, I figured I might as well give it a try. Change begins one step at a time or something, right?

The first thing I noticed was that my head hurt, a lot. I had a small headachey pain in the front right, my jaw muscles were tight as hell, and there just seemed to be fatigue all over the place. Yargh.... but I kept on going.

And after checking through the whole body, I went back to my nostrils. It felt right and then I just hit this great series of moments where I felt my whole body. I felt everything like I was one unit of sensation. I was a grain of rice with hot palms, head of fire, expanding lungs, and everything. These were fantastic moments, and very intimidating. I kept having these small thoughts, "can this last, will it get disorienting, what next?" but I stayed with the meditation.

After a while, I opened my eyes and I still could feel my entire body. Which was great because I could see as well. (I know that last sentence sounds weird). And then, I stopped meditating. And my feet didn't even fall asleep this time.

My head hurts less too.
