This practice is one of the most difficult ones that I’ve come across. It is almost impossible to sit up straight through this practice. Setting an intention is out of the question. But, of course, this is the first go around for me. Next time, it will be better.
The crazy thing is that my ankles got more of a work out than anything else. My shoulders need a lot of work.
Progress will be noticeable when I’m able to meditate on Descartes’ question of what if there is an evil deceiver running the universe while doing this practice.
Even more impressive will be if I have anything close to a good answer to that question.
