Instead of doing an MCO I just sat crosslegged on the couch for 15 minutes being aware of objects in consciousness.
The trick is to stay aware of being aware of things , I also try to do this during the day.
It’s like observing what the mind is thinking , what the body is feeling and doing , what emotions there are while being conscious of the fact that this is being observed.
Lately I am more clear about this than usual, also many times during the day. At those moments I feel a slight sense of distance between ‘me’ and the experience and I also see the fear that this progress is just temporary and I’ll fall back again. I suspect the Untethered Soul is the cause of this heightened (but still fragile) clarity.
