Past life practice. It's good you're progressing on Bodhicitta, it's the King of practice so you should practice it regularly. I would suggest picking up a copy of Clarifying the Natural State and master Shamatha. Also, slow teachings isn't a bad thing. You're already learned the important stuff. Lord Drikungpa was enlightened and he did the Ngondro everyday.DeepFriedFunk wrote:First Post

I have found (and trying very hard to avoid pride/self importance) ....
I have noticed a warm fuzz of energy centering at my heart and moving in all directions to each extremity that I can generate at will.
Also, after a long meditation (particularly on Bodichitta) session my parents behave differently, my cats are more attracted to me (and one is very timid) and I also have the most timid Crested Gecko (I cannott handle him because he gets terrified and poops on me) but he watches me meditate and after lets me stroke him, which he never did before.
I just want to learn how to use this to help other people.
Also, I would like to explore more - can anyone give me literature or teachings into using these skills with more focus and success?
Should I speak to my teachers? Or will they think I am being egotistical?
Or is this all normal and just in my head?
