What are humans made of? ..... the track the bird leaves in the sky, the reflection of the moon in still water, the sound of a bell after it has ended.... that is what humans are made of.. ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~
"Woraus sind Menschen gemacht?.... aus der Spur, die der Vogel am Himmel zurück lässt, dem Spiegelbild des Mondes im stillen Wasser, dem Klang der Glocke nach dem Verklingen..... daraus sind Menschen gemacht." - Domo Geshe Rinpoche ---
Our pets love to be around the juicy meditation energies but they are also unpredictable. They can jump up, bark or meow at any time, and if that should occur while we are in a delicate place, they could cause an energy accident. They can sit on us any old time but it is not a good idea during serious meditation. ( I am pretty sure that many will object to this idea, but it is well considered and presented to you with trepidation.) ~ Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~

Mental sinking is an obstacle in meditation and the opposite of mental excitement. The mind wants to drift in a certain way so some antidote needs to be applied. Sometimes the mind drifts and like a little butterfly you dreamily fly to a flower, then think, “Oh, there is another nice flower over there. I think I’ll float over there and look at that.” This is done in a languid way, as though you were about to enter a dream state.
Mental sinking could also be the experience of heaviness in the body that is about to enter sleep. Sometimes from the far corner of the monastery we could hear snores coming from a monk and then everyone begins to titter. One of my American students was not feeling so well one day so she lay down behind the last row of students, and in fact she did start to snore.
You not have cold weather here in California, but people who come from cold cold weather know there is real danger in being exposed to extreme cold and begin to feel sleepy. If they cannot arouse them…
