""have you ever though what would happen if..."""
"""yeah, she was was totally checking you out"""
""""... I know right, it wasn't even 4/4, dumbass"""
"""" ...man, fuck that, I told them already, they'll see. soon"""
and then..



I gotta clear my thoughts when migraining it cos any one of those inane thoughts is like twisting a hot knife in my brain. so, in a way, you could say, I'm forced to meditate.

applied & got denied? :?
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

frankly
it's all about re-realizing that we're already here
by exhausting the illusory alternatives.

There's loads of Ashrams around me right now (India) and everyone who I've met and has attempted one has said its fucking hard work, and really struggle to last more than a couple of days.

All the best if you do go.

Letting go off hopes, dreams and aspirations sounds like something for dead people

Having said that, apparently meditation is great for you.

letting go of hopes, dreams & aspirations
in the sense that they are tropes that inadequately represent your future
and distractions from immersion in this moment...
it's not about not having them
it's about liberation from the fractal tangle of thought,
to rawly experience deathless existence now.

of course ^ itself is a tangled thought

thus the need to sit & experience this
