The past several days have been insane between work and home as we prepare to visit my stepmother in Jamaica. I have placed a renewed focus on anapanasati as my primary practice given the fact that it is the one technique which has delivered incontrovertible results in the past and for its portability. Sure, I will still work on the brahmaviharas but it’s more a matter of switching the emphasis.

This morning I awoke incredibly tired and with my right ear still numb and thinking from the alarm that blasted it yesterday when I had to take a trip out to Brooklyn to restart the server. These two combined are proving quite difficult to deal with and so I have decided to scale back my practice today to solely focus on buddho with the breath. I fear anything more teaching might put me over the edge. So, two steps forward and one back it seems but forward we go nonetheless.
