First, many thanks for making this available!
This was a very interesting exercise for me, in particular the fact that I couldn’t find an emotion on site when I was trying to
mediate on one. I had to force the recollection emotional instances to think about them. I choose to do this meditation
because I usually have a very hard time controlling my emotions and typically make decisions based more on those
emotions than rather than thought or practicality. Generally I also feel strongly about most things, most of the time,
so I was surprised about the difficulty of finding and sticking to an an emotion to meditate on. Toward the end of the
session I had a very beautiful pleasant happy feeling, but I also felt it was a bit sneaky. That is I felt I was giving myself a
pleasant distraction away from the meditation. Thanks again!
@Oana Great comments! Mingyur Rinpoche gives teachings on working on with emotions in the Tergar courses. These are available both online and in workshops all over the world. See tergar.org/events/
Thanks so much for your post!
No emoltions were available as I sat. So I tried focusing my solar plexus where I feel emotions, at the same time thinking of something that was bothering me. This produced tiny disturbance which I could use for my meditation.
On another occasion I was able to intercept an instance of impatience as soon as it hit me. After a few seconds of awareness it dissipated.
