I have started meditating.
In preparation to start meditating I read some books and other things about it. I ended up settling provisionally on a method in which I set a timer for about 15 minutes and then count backwards from one hundred. I focus myself in the numbers, rooting in the present, and then with each breath slowly count down. If my attention wanders I start over again at one hundred.
The lowest I have gotten to is 98.
But I have done this hundreds of times.
Between 99 and 98 I may even have written this entire blog post in my mind, in tiny pieces.
"No, my darling. We are not writing blog posts. We are seeking presence and peace."
Post a Comment
If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.
I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!
One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
