Re: Meditation ... Advice appreciated.

The ringing in your ears may also be a physical condition known as tinnitus. Thirty six million Americans have it. Mine is caused by nerve damage from many inner ear infections as a child. Another common cause is taking too much aspirin. The ringing is always there, but in normal activities, I have become accustomed to it, and cannot "hear" it at all when other sounds are present. Only when there is total quiet (such as when I am meditating) is the sensation detectable, so it would seem that the meditation is "causing" it, even though that is not in fact the case.
