If I focus on a single object, feeling, sound ao I feel it coming from within.
When you say you feel it, what exactly do you mean with feeling? Please reflect on this and answer from direct experience.
The feeling can be best described as being one with.
Okay good. When you say being one with, how are you one with the object of experience (feeling, sound, smell, ...)? Try to be even more specific. Take an example in your direct experience and look closer still. What makes you say is feels like being one with the experience? Dig deeper. Take your time and don't try to figure out the right answer yourself. Just put the question out there and wait for it to come.

The head or mind seems to get out of the way and I feel a gentle sensation in the heart area. Everything quietes down.
Again very good work! Can you be more elaborate? Describe this more in detail? You are on the right track.
It seems to work everytime but I cannot decribe it as a "knowing" yet.
What is important is to make sure you see that you do not exist by first hand experience. And not that it is just an intellectual understanding. Intellectual understanding is where we start. And by the way, many people's "intellectual" understanding is actually a much deeper understanding than they are prepared to recognize.
So you tell me, do you understand intellectually that you do not exist and are not the doer or is it a (self) realization, not based on rational thinking but on seeing, instandly and without at doubt? Let's be sure about this first before we decide what to tackle next.
Don't know exactly but the thought that comes up is that with knowing comes a solid and slow breathing from the stomach area normally. With this exercise and in this stage it seems to be coming from the chest/hearth area but it can also be the case that my knowing normally comes from head logic and since this excercise leaves my head out I misinterpret
Forget about other stuff you have done for now. let's not get lost in how you breath. Also let's not interpret anything, that' s guessing and that's not what we do here. Truth is not guessed, it is seen or not.
I am sorry to hear you are feeling a bit under the weather. This can or can not be related to the work you ar doing with me. Resistance always comes up and it can come in many forms. Be gentle with yourself and stay courages at the same time.
Do you feel comfortable to work with what I gave you?
