Chapters Six and Seven
INNER BODY MINDFULNESS

These pages explore listening, smelling, tasting, and visualising inside the body. Each of these senses has its own sphere of sensitivity.

Body awareness through breathing and the tactile sense is limited. Each of our seeing, hearing, smelling, and tasting senses add a different dimension to inner body mindfulness.

These pages are supplementary to the main site. There are already libraries full of literature on inner body awareness, i don't need to emphasise its basic importance.

For this reason these Chapters have been left till last to organise. At present, i am pefecting the main Chapters and will get here hopefully sometime in 2023.

Here is a dividing line.

DOZING

or
A Guess at the Inner Body Awareness of Animals

Huamans think about their world, and we think about what happens in our bodies. And, i started thinking that if an animal's sense of reality is so much more to do with seeing, listening, and smelling, rather than thinking – then they understand their own bodies by what they can hear, smell, taste, and 'what they imagine they can see', inside their bodies.

And i'm not saying that i can empathise well with how animals feel. But after 40 yrs of doing different meditations, imagining how animals use their senses of taste, smell, hearing, and seeing, – opened up whole new perspectives on inner body mindfulness.

The effects of panoraming are obvious, they are manifest. But, it is impossible to prove how animals actually use their senses internally to feel their identity and the reality of their bodies.

I don't want to get involved in theories or anything unnatural, anything an innocent animal wouldn't feel. So, there are a number of questions which i would love to ask small children. Where does the breath go in your body? Where do smells go in your body? What can you taste in your body? ... etc. ... to guide us, to help us find natural ways to develop our inner body awareness.
