Hi all,

I have a quick question please. Often while practising I get to this stage where I completely everything, my mind becomes blank and takes me good few seconds to work out what I am/was doing and after those few seconds I realise, OH! ya.. meditation and another split second to figure out how is it done.

I this normal.. or could something be going wrong here... Advise and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

I don't think it's "wrong", since you clearly are noticing these. Noticing more stuff is generally a "good" sign.

Are you using the "progress of insight" map? There are references to "blanking out" in those descriptions. Those maps are best used in a very broad manner which incorporates your experiences of the past few months, rather than zooming in on single details like blanking out during meditation.

Cheers,
Florian
