Do you ever find that objects external or internal trigger you to enter into a sponaneous meditative state?  I do.  Most recently when coming upon the following photo of the Tiger's Nest Monestary in Bhutan I found myself deeply reciting my mantra without having had any intention to do so.

I love this picture and my practice.  The picture is now my screen savor.  My practice is...my practice.  Dennis

Yes, I do find myself spontaneously going into a meditative state at times.  It most often seems to happen when I am reading something of deep spiritual significance.  I don't use mantras so much when I meditate, but my body has this rocking motion that also spontaneously occurs while I meditate.  It was a little disconcerting to find myself rocking while reading an article on the internet at work.

one should try to return to the "natural state" whenever one remembers all the time...

jrcoll:  Hi!  Perhaps all states that we are able to experience are 'natural states' or else our nature could not experience them.  Or perhaps I am just not as restrictive in defining what is and isn't natural.  Good luck in your practice, Dennis

This page and picture is not available.  To me, at least.  Memory is fascinating, and I think it has a metaphysical or is a metaphysical structure.

Blueshen:  I'm sorry...I'm sure the fault could be mine but I'm embarassed to say I don't understand your post or it's relevance to this thread!  Thanks, Dennis
