Questions you should ask your self during and after meditating.
Insight into mind and Matter - Nama-rupa Pariccheda Nana
How were you contemplating, how did you feel when noting?
What else could you note?
Could you note your mind wandering?
Could you tell step by step how you noted when you were standing still, lying down, getting up, bending, stretching and so on.
When noting on rising and falling, could you say that the occurrence of each rising and falling coincided with your mental noting?
Then, while you were noting on the rising and falling process did your mind wander elsewhere?
When you have noted the wandering mind and went back to rising and falling, you could contemplate easily and accurately?
Did you note on the nature of bodily sensations, e.g., irritation, pain, ache, heat, cold, etc?
When there was irritation and you wanted to scratch, did you note them as “wanting to scratch”, “wish to ease the irritation”? If so when you raised your hand to scratch, did you note as “raising”, “bending”, stretching”, “moving” and so on.
When you remember to note, did you note desire or intention to bend, stretch etc? (ask the same question as in itchy, the desire to scratch etc.)
Could you note when turning to either side when you were lying down?
When you found you were able to note well, was it like that from the beginning of meditation or was it a change from being good at noting to bad?
