Q Thank you for that, I found it tricky today, a very busy mind. often find myself “storytelling” where I get wrapped up in a fictional situation where I come out as the person in the right/with the answers. i assumed this about my sense of insecurity and/or ego. And called it “storytelling”, “justification” or “ego”, where does this sit in the hindrances?
Heike & Amaya
01:02:08
Q: As I get more absorbed in the breath, the space between breaths lengthens, which then seems to open up more space for distractions to arise. Any tips for this? (One example is that I lose count in the counting stages as the space is so long, which then turns into a distraction.)

Tanya A
01:03:19
Thank you!! Q: I find that at the beginning and at points during the practice, my mind kept drifting into fantasy and throwing some vivid images at me. Have you got any suggestions for what i could do before sitting down to meditate?
Hartley Jackson
01:03:32
Q. Thank you. I am aware my natural breathing is quite shallow, little movement in belly or chest! When I breathe in MOB, my breath automatically becomes deeper and noticeable. It's not exaggerated but is still deeper. Is that OK. I feel my natural breath is difficult to focus on.
David Stansfield

Q I have recorded may of these morning meditations on my phone so I "have" them for the future. This feels like anxiety - a bit like taking photographs to capture moments for ever. What do you think?
Sophie Caseley
01:04:37
Thank you very much again
Peter Martin
01:04:56
Q: I sometimes notice the beginning of what I think is a deeper state of concentration. Then my mind gets excited about this, hoping to “meditate deeply/properly” - and with that excitement the deeper state has gone. I have this experience quite often. Any tips?
Helen L

Q: I kept trying to translate what Sense Desire means to me. Can you say if this Hindrance is titled by two nouns or is Sense a verb that senses Desire or are they both
BN -
01:06:38

Q. I kept having moments of inspiration for my work during the meditation and then I got distracted by wanting to remember these ideas. I can see this as sense desire, wanting to think, at the same time, it was tricky to let the creative ideas go for fear of forgetting them! Any advice?
