As a sort of reverse experiment I had been doing it regularly for a while, and then decided to focus exclusively on meditation. It's hard to articulate it, but I've noticed a difference. Probably the best way to explain it is it seems like things that had seemed relatively easy, or came easy to me became more difficult, or harder? So needless to say I just picked it up again. :-)

Sometimes I'm not sure if I'm asking the same question a few different ways, but I'm wondering can Vipassana make the issue that your observing seem to flare up?

So I have been doing a lot of Vippasana this weekend looking at various forms of craving. After the last session I have felt unusually tired, dizzy, and disoriented. Can this be a result of meditation or an indication that meditation is doing something?

In discussing the topic of free will with my friends I point out that if the will was truly free then there would not be addictions.

Taiji Bum, yes that occurred to me as well, it does feel like withdraw.

 

TI, thanks for the list. I've been experiencing a few of those exactly as listed. At least its comforting to know its not just me.
