I have been meditating for like 4 months, almost every day. I started with 5 to 10 minutes and now I do 20 minutes every day. I'm planning on increasing it. I feel like this is too little based on what I hear from others on this forum, but I find it really difficult to do more than 20 minutes.

It's not how long you meditate but the quality of it.  Quality over quantity guys.


We must not cease from exploration and at the end of all our exploring will be to arrive at the place where we began and to know the place for the first time.       --T.S Eliot

I remember once I do the Do Nothing for 90 min. It was ok. The sorenes comes in waves and your body get still like a rock.

No man, its ok. Star increasing time very little. Maybe +5 min per month I think is fine.

How do you guys do long sits without your legs getting numb? Because almost everytime I meditate for 30+ minutes or even less my right leg goes completely numb, I've tried so many positions and it keeps happening. I find it quite easy to meditate, my only problem is the numbness. What's the sollution?

Yoga and similar stretching and daily physical exercise helps. That's why they go hand in hand and meditation is always advised after exercise in which it is most effective as the body needs rest.

 See where you’re cutting your circulation off. If it’s your ankles put the bottoms of your feet together instead of crossing them. Make sure you’re sitting on a cushion made for meditation.

Aha! This is where the do nothing techique gets you. And this is is the point, it's like a metaphor for life. You sit with the numbness until you can no longer bear it (of course risk asses first with positions etc). Shinzen Young claims you won't do any real damage (unless you're sitting for like hours and hours). 

The numbness is resistance to life. 

Let go of the resistance, keep letting go and see what happens.

@Cody_Atzori I stopped meditating a few months ago. It simply came to an end. God told me to stop meditating.
