Wow this was a strange sit. I'm using You Tube Meditation Music. This time I used DMT Spiritual Activation... Spiritual Zen Network, blah, blah. I listened to the music and stared into the eye of the Mandela. I really have learned to LOVE this Mandela. With this music, I felt like I fell into the middle of the flower. I had grumbling thoughts as well. If nothing else, I think these deliberate sits is going to clear the halls of my inner thoughts. I know I've been angry about a few things, so, I'm not surprised by the grumble grumble. Again, like torn up pieces of paper being incinerated by the fire, soot gathering. I do feel peaceful thought, right now trying to write about it. (I'm still listening to the music as I write.) Do I think the music is a distraction? No, it helps me focus. Using the Mandela, the seven minutes, and the music is very good. I'm being distracted right now, because I keep getting these Facebook messages. I think meditating clears the halls so that you can get other work done. This is what I think as of this moment. What I will be thinking a week from now may be different. Conclusion - this is useful. I am serene. Lord, do I sound like a cliché? Ha. YES. But I like this... I'll keep going.
