2021.11.29 22:59 mjleavitt Questions about Meditation Practice
I have a couple questions about a new meditation practice I picked up recently.
For context, I have both ADHD and PTSD, so when I meditate, it’s difficult to sustain focus and it sometimes triggers overwhelming anxiety. I’ve learned how to use box breathing to prevent panic attacks though, which is good!
I recently begun 10 minutes of daily concentration meditation (5 min in the morning, 5 in the evening: starting small to ingrain the habit). I count my in breaths and out breaths from 1 to 10. If I notice a distraction, I label it as a discursive thought, an image, or a sensation, and then return to 1.
I often feel that when I’m focusing on the breath, I’m not truly present because there are tons of other sensations/feelings/thought I’m ignoring so I can narrow my focus to the breath. It feels antithetical to present moment awareness because most of the present moment is being excluded. Any thoughts on this?
Two other concerns: when I breathe naturally, my breathing usually becomes so subtle that I can’t notice or feel it. Or I can’t tell which is the in or out breath. I restart the count every time before I get to 10 because of this. Is this an issue? How do I improve this if so?
Secondly, I have chronic back pain and so meditation posture (straight spine) is often uncomfortable. When I have PTSD flare ups, my emotions are often overwhelming. And my knees hurt like mad in meditation as well (I sit seiza with a zafu cushion). These sensations/feelings crowd out my awareness, so even when I’m genuinely focused on the breath, they dominate my awareness. When I notice that, I try to shift the spotlight to the breath but they intrude on the spotlight. Should I just continue my practice as is and let these sensations come and go? Or is there a way to refine my spotlight, so these competing sensations don’t intrude on it when the spotlight is on the breath?
Thanks in advance for your help!

The Magby is because I want something with Flame Body to hatch eggs faster, and the Everstone is so I don't have to grind in the Underground or wait until much later in the game when I can trade with the She-Demon of Snowpoint to get one

2021.11.29 22:59 Far-Ambassador-2260 UC EC Catagory question
So I did a summer unpaid internship but it was through my school, like my district partnered with different companies and gave students opportunities to get selected for internships but because of this, it comes up as a summer class on my transcript because I technically got a grade for my performance in the internship. Should I put this as "Other courses" since it is a course "Volunteering/Community Service" since UC says to put unpaid internships here
its also my #1 EC so its kinda important

2021.11.29 22:59 Technical_Buy3736 Can I still practice self pleasure at all or no? (Question about quitting porn)
Hey so 17 M here turning 18 in a few weeks. When lockdown began I really struggled with porn and watched a lot but that was probably because I had a lot of time. I have drastically cut that down and am able to avoid porn for long periods of time if I want. However some days I am just so horny I can’t focus until I ejaculate. When I feel like that I will just watch porn and ejaculate.
I have read about some more of the long term negative affects of porn and want to avoid them since I’m still young so I want to cut out completely soon. I have in the past been able to get off to my imagination or even just text pretty well.
My question is, is it still bad if I masturbate to my imagination, reading articles while stimulating, etc.? So pretty much masturbating without looking at porn. Is that gonna give me benefits of cutting out porn or do I have to go completely abstinent in order to reap the benefits of quitting porn?
Any advice related to this is greatly appreciated!

Hey guys! So today my Yamaha C1 neck came in for my Yamaha Custom 82z. So far, I’m really liking it but I do have an issue with it. If I don’t push in far enough, my low C makes this awful gargling sound. But, if I push in enough to fix that, I’m sharp by around 10 cents. Any suggestions?
