    Day: 42 of 100 (Saturday)
    Date: September 11, 2021
    Time: 6:33 a.m. to 7:33 a.m.
    Duration: 10 minutes
    Experience: Very calm mind achieved soon after the start of the meditation session. This calm mind helps me to think better throughout the day and therefore, it is helpful to meditate and remain calm first thing in the morning. Theme for the meditation continue to be equanimity and find out what trips my mind to reach the extremes of emotions and how to bring it back to neutral state. My thoughts race me to the past and the future and hence when I become an observer, I separate myself from my thoughts resulting in calmer mind.

    Day: 43 of 100 (Sunday)
    Date: September 12, 2021
    Time: 6:24 a.m. to 6:39 a.m.
    Duration: 15 minutes
    Experience: In order to concentrate the mind again to remain calmer throughout the duration of the meditation, I decided to mentally recite Gayathri Mantra. Breathing cycle reached rhythmic form quickly. I noticed that mind stopped recitation of the Mantra when it drifted to another thought. It is interesting that the mind had to stop recitation in order to think which explains that the mind can only function from thinking point of view only sequentially. It looks like the mind can let other body parts to function remotely like driving without thinking but it can't do two things at a time by itself.

    Day: 44 of 100 (Monday)
    Date: September 13, 2021
    Time: 5:51 a.m. to 6:01 a.m.
    Duration: 10 minutes
    Experience: I had a serene experience today with my meditation effort. There was no need to recite anything and the mind entered into the meditation with the expectation that it had to remain calm. It looks like the mind can be trained to focus during meditation by repetitive action and as long as the meditation is done at a specific time schedule.
