I re-emerged after 10 straight days of silent meditation and I’m happy to report that all the good things I heard about the Vipassana meditation experience are true. Allowing myself to unplug and turn inward so intensely gave me insight about some deep rooted blind spots that I hadn’t actually resolved. It felt like a detox for my mind and played out like the most profound game of connect the dots. I uncovered the sources of behavior patterns I knew weren’t my best self and discovered some that I wasn’t even aware were holding me back. It’s a higher level of conciousness. I’m looking back on so much of how I’ve lived my life, understanding it deeper and actually forgiving myself for it now. It’s a new level of compassion and clarity. I feel like I’ve reinvented myself again. Quddus 2.0 is up to bat now and I can’t wait to share him with you.
If you’re interested to learn more about the Vipassana course, check out Dhamma.org. It’s based in Buddhism but it’s not sectarian. I highly recommend it for anyone.
