Sunmage: Alone - All one?


Sunmage

Recommended Posts

This challenge will lead me back to myself. I will feel myself and will be able to be all one again.

Right now I always need something around. TV or mobile phone games. I can't be alone with myself.

Time to deal with that so that being alone becomes being all one again...

 

#1 priority will be my own sanity

#2 priority will be the thesis

 

  1. Meditate every day.
    I will do Anapana every day for 5 Minutes. I will kneel.
    The time will increase by 1 minute every day. 
    30 days need to be completed during the challenge.
    Vipassana will blend in when the sessions became long enough
  2. I will finish my thesis. 
    In order to do that I will spend at least 1 hour a day until done. Daily report.
  3. LGN
    Summer is coming! I became very unfit the last months. Right now I am pretty sick and need to get well.
    When that is done I will perform 3 bodyweight workouts a week.
  4. Sunmage 2.0
    I want to live my life  under the best conditions. In order to do that I want to improve my eyesight, my flexibility and my overall happyness.
    I will perform my excercises after I am better.

This will be one of my quests this time around as well. Ten minutes without computers and phones just to take a deep breath and enjoy it. Good luck! You can do it! :)

How about I lend some of my "alone with myself" time?  I love my "me" time, but probably need to balance it out a bit better.   :redface-new:

I take it!

I actually have enough spare "me-time", but I waste it on the internet...

Day one began with becoming really sick. I had to leave work early and cant sleep due to high fever.

So all plans are postponed.

Good news I will finally get well, after I was On-Off sick for weeks. =)

I spent the first week with being really sick. Fever has lowered, but I may not go to work the whole next week. My lungs still have a lot to recover. I will start to add in some meditation exercises over the weekend.

My favorites are right now:

Agnihotra fire ceremony

Sunyoga

Relaxing meditations

Visualization of health :)

Today I woke up on time for the first agnihotra in a long time since I live in a small flat and can't use my balcony for it :(

I showered prepared everything and then got lost on preparations, so I missed sunrise. I guess that was the answer to my question if my fewer was low enough to perform agnihotra... Tonight there will be a beautiful sunset...

Lessions learned from Agnihotra:

When I did the ceremony I thought How could you not do this for nearly a year?

When the flames vanished and the smoke started: How will I get rid of the smoke in my flat without neighbors calling the fire department?

Fire

 

My balcony is no solution because I live to close to the Fire Department. They will see or smell it and visit me. And I would have to pay several hundred bucks for that visit...

 

My bathroom has no windows, but a mini fan. It probably uses the same vent as the flats beneath me they will have smoke in their small bathroom =(

 

I guess I need a construction with a filtered kitchen vent =)

Any other ideas?

I was intrigued by what exactly the Agnihotra fire ceremony was, so I looked it up.  It sounds interesting.  Why are you not allowed to have small contained fires where you live?  I'm racking my brain to figure out solutions, but I live in a house with a fire pit in the backyard.  It's very common where I live to have contained fires as long as there is not a red-flag warning in effect.

Laws don't Need reasons.

In many parts of Germany you may not have small fires. Especially in urban Areas.

Out in the Country it is normal to do so, too.

Due to my landlord not even Barbecues on the balcony are allowed. But every *** is allowed to smoke stinking cigarettes whenever Im outside ;)

 

Sounds hard but still worth the fact that we have no General Speed Limit on Highways =)

 

 

Week 1 was completely wasted. I'm still sick, but the fever has lowered. Lungs and ears need some attention, too.
Week 1 doesn't count at all. =)

 

Have good start!

Glad you are feeling better Sunmage!

Unfortunatly, right now I have no idea for fixing the fire problem. The Agnihotra fire ceremony sounds like an inspiring habit. I hope you can find a way of getting it to work for you, without involving the fire department.

Best of luck for week 2! :D

Thanks!

 

I did 30 minutes of sunyoga today. I needed that energy kick. Right now I have so much energy that I am smiling and writing a lot of posts for the mini challenge although it is already bedtime...

Better, thanks!

 

Week 2 is done and it doesn't count either.

I spent some time with meditation and cooking!

 

This week will be interesting! I will wait another week with the bodyweight workout...

 

3 days of work left, then I will leave to France to attend a sun yoga workshop. Did I mention that I don't speak french at all?

 

It will be fun! And it appears like I will meditate for 30 minutes every day until then.
