I must admit I’ve never really thought about that much other than it was a cool thing to learn and maybe impress someone with over coffee. But what did this really have to do with me?
There is a better contextual layout of the quantum physics stuff, what makes up the Habit of us , plus meditation that helps you understand what “Breaking The Habit of Being Yourself” really means. After listening to the audio version I began to the think of meditation more as an agent of change than just a way to calm down or feel a sense of connection to a divine presence – which once I got the agent of change theme I found that both getting calm and a sense of divine connection also change agents!
I use three because he suggests to mix them up for better benefit. It was during my morning meditation that I had the awareness of myself as the “disappearing particle”. In the letting go of all my thoughts about who I was I saw that the subatomic particle in quantum physics does not disappear into nothingness – it becomes “no individualized thing-ness” and so therefore it becomes “every thing”, which is what the field of possibilities represents to me, that place where everything is present – until it individualizes again as a thing or “some thing”.I saw myself becoming no thing, no one, no history, with the potential to be anything.
the practice you’ve been doing. Like working out the muscles become accustomed to the routine and the routine no longer has the same affects. So you change up the workout routine and find the body responding again. This is the same process with meditation.
I have been meditating for over 20 years. Many different techniques and experiences. I am available as a meditation coach if you are new of want some guidance in your current practice.
Neither of the meditations I use are “5 minute meditation”, however after some practice I think you can take the initial concept and use it for a 5 minute quickie during the day and the longer tow in the morning and at night.
