Why do I cry during meditation?
Gargar Asked: Why do I cry during meditation?
I've recently got into Buddhism and meditation. I have only meditated a few times. I was meditating inthe laying down position with my knees bent, and my hands behind my head. I feel more open that way. I closed my eyes and concentrated on my breathing, and I saw flashing images, and noises from my past. I started to cry softly. This isn't the first time, I have gotten teary eyed while meditating before.
Alot has to do with my past. I grew up in a violent home. Am I learning to feel my emotions, like Buddha says we must do?
You believe you have more problems than most.Stop believing that.
Be an atheist. We dont cry during meditation
It is a release of a lot of pent up stress and sadness and also anger… it is very good for you because you are releasing much needed pent up anxiety of many many years… it is actually very beneficial for you….. continue to enjoy your meditation and dont worry eventually you will stop crying.. it isjust happening now because you are resolving some heavy emotional stuff :).. GOOD LUCK WITH THE MEDITATION !!
Thoughts determine emotions. Grief indicates an attachment to loss. You may have thought you lost something in your childhood. That's just a feeling, not a reality and not based on truth.
because you get to see images of these fuckingpathetic cocksuckershere and you cry
Someone switched your incense with tear-gas flares.
I understand what you're feeling.
You have regrets from your past, and the one thing you must do is acknowledge that the past no longer exists.
Meditation is in everything we do. Meditation = contemplation, and therefore, everything we decide to do has been contemplated. Therefore, we meditate every second. I am currently contemplating what to write on this page, therefore, I am meditating.
Deep meditation (what you're practicing) is supposed to free our minds from the stresses of the world and allow us to connect with reality in a state of mind called "The Gap." We reach the gap when we do things like listen to music, play a game, or watch a sun set. Any time our minds feel completely connected with something and we are "In the zone" is when we are in The Gap.
Meditation is supposed to help us reach the gap, and therefore, you cannot have your mind on the past. Wasting your time by thinking about the past is unhealthy, for it cannot be changed and the only thing that you can change is the current moment. Same goes for thinking about the future.
Just relax and accept the fact that the only moment that exists is this one right here right now, and you must decide what to do with it (contemplation.) One second later, that moment will no longer exist and is not worth thinking about any longer. The past, regardless of what happened, got you where you currently are, therefore you should only think about where you are right now.
I feel that once you acknowledge this, you will have a more peaceful, sound meditation experience.
