Numbness, Missing Body Parts | 1998

Meditation Journal entry

The numbness is very strange… it is like the body is missing… absent… or is it only my perception of the body… some part of the mind that is blanking out the body? It starts in one place – hands or feet usually and then progresses to encompass the entire body… and there is no feeling of anything – but there is still mind. There is no feeling of self – of “me” – but, there is a mind… there is a watcher that is observing… i can still focus attention on something – whatever I choose… there are occasionally thoughts too…

Note – this was taken from my old meditation journal and happened sometimes between 1998-1999.
