Thailand Meditation Journal Date: 1996?
This morning while sitting on the balcony of our 7th-floor hotel room in Melbourne one was not trying to meditate–but one was just experiencing and being in the present moment. After a short time, one blanked out for some periods of 1-10 seconds. One felt that otherness perch on the head for a moment (for lack of a better way to describe it).
An e x p a n s e opened up–almost imperceptibly but one was very attentive–yet couldn’t describe it even as it came and was with one! Briefly, the sky got a shade lighter, and a presence was felt somewhere in the L hemi of the brain or head, or above the head on the left side. One didn’t look up–yet felt it there in that region.
One experienced this for a short time–and didn’t notice it leaving and so presumably it stayed or left without a sign.
