15 Insights From A 10-Day Vipassana Retreat
  1. Intermittent Fasting. The easiest way to stay healthy, lose weight and feel active throughout the day.
  2. We’re all social butterflies. Nobody wants to be left alone forever. Some people just enjoy their alone-time more than others, but at the end of the day, humans need other humans to stay sane.
  3. It is, in fact, possible to meditate for 10 hours a day without losing your mind.
  4. It is, in fact, possible to do the above-mentioned point for 10 days straight without losing your mind.
  5. Talking about spirituality is one thing, and really getting down to meditate is another. Talk is for the mind, it won’t do much apart from offering you spiritual entertainment.
  6. It is absolutely possible to have your head on your shoulders without any solid food from 11:30 am until 6:30 am the be morning. In fact, after a day or two, its caaake.
  7. You don’t know what you’re capable of until you test yourself. Jump headfirst into things that scare the living daylights off you. You’ll love it and if you don’t, you’ve at least got yourself an epic story.
  8. Your mind will jump at the slightest inconvenience and come up with a hundred excuses in order for you to give up. At times like these, tell your mind to kindly shut the hell up and keep going.
  9. Instagram is a really boring app that exists primarily to provide unnecessary dopamine rushes to your brain. You won’t miss it.
  10. When you’re in a place where everyone maintains “noble silence”, nobody cares what they wear, how they look, or how much they put on their plate at lunch, because they know no-one knows them or is judging them anyway.
  11. You won’t be this young forever.
  12. There are takers for everything and you’re always making choices. There is the same number of people waiting to get in this course here to better themselves as there are people waiting out of the bar to get in to soak in sensual pleasures.
  13. People who meditate or opt for courses like this are not boring 40-year-olds. They can be free-spirited& funny-as-hell 24 year olds that are just your type too.
  14. The only thing you’ll want after 10 days of silence is to hear humans speaking to each other and stirring up a commotion.
  15. Life is of a transient nature. So are your emotions. No feeling lasts forever. Wait out your anger and it soon dissipates. Sit out your happiness and it turns to pure bliss.
