it musn't vipassana then
s'funny how some of you guys expect meditation to be entertaining
it sort of is but not how you might think
no floating in the air or trippin' out
I mean, I rarely meditate now days but know I'd be better off if I did
just to reacquaint myself with what I know but often don't remember
personally I don't find my internal world confronting
it's more like amusingly preoccupied with mindless shit,
that, if you sit and watch for awhile,
starts to settle and diminish
it's like a churned ocean calming and becoming pellucid
things take on perspective & don't elicit concern so much,
like having a good massage with muscle spasms relieved, the body relaxed,
the mind calms and attention shifts to unthinking existence.
With the extraneous no longer dominant,
preoccupations, worries, wishes, hopes, expectations lose their power
no need to avoid boredom because it's seen for what it is:
a distraction, a mindset, a neediness
just sitting, standing, whatever
concentrating on the in & out breaths
till there's nothing to be conscious of
and I return rested and revivified.
nuh, it's good shit
you don't have to be a freak
or be chasing enlightenment or nirvana
it's all about re-realizing that we're already here
by exhausting the illusory alternatives.
