"Phenomenology helps bridge the divide between mind and body..." ~ Susan Kozel
Since the 48 hours I have come back from my ten days of practicing Vipassana (meditation of mind and body), I have yet to recover the ability to interact socially -- a few notable exceptions are those most intimate to me. This phenomena happens because I am unable to separate and isolate one thought from my whole reason of existence.
Consideration of the affect of my sensory oriented process: before during after transformation:
-my eyes are clear, animated -- my eyes have one solid color, seeing within and out
-sweeping my body while meditating -- feeling the layer of makeup
-partially dressed -- I am not naked so I have to fake believing that I am, because the fabric and makeup on my skin alter my transformation. So I decide to scan only my head.
-sound -- white noise initially inexistent becomes overpowering. I should have turned off the dehumidifier so the video could pick up my sigh (mid-video)
-mask -- I eventually begin to feel the tension between the makeup-paste of the mask and the skin underneath. When I feel a space much wider that it is (augmented reality), I open my eyes. Transformation into Dalidada is achieved.
