I have a new technique for quickly gaining a bit of space - called "zapping the P-RAM" described in the start of this video. Also, when we say we are bored, what exactly do we mean? What happens to our minds when we feel bored? Get curious about this, and you can never be truly bored again.
I sit at work because I can no longer sit at home. Sitting at work is really different. Thoughts automatically gravitate to the to-do list or new ideas. During sitting, it is best to treat these great ideas the same way you treat any thought. Come back to the object of meditation, which is the breath. Don't make a big thing out of it, just come back. Having thoughts, good or bad, is not good or bad.
That said, here is a nice photo of the reason I can't sit at home.
Got dressed up for a meeting today : Make time to do nothing
Friday, May 3, 2013
Day has been busy, but I was out and about in this town a bit. Took the Hubway. Got a bit confused by it. Would not accept my code for the return trip. Meeting went well, I think, we shall see. Another meeting back at the office on the phone when I got in. With all these meetings, when do I work? OH and now I spend 10 minutes doing NOTHING. Wow. Trying not to get stuck in thought about all these meetings.
Attached is another picture of my lovely daughter. And a video for sitting. Good luck.
I am becoming increasingly aware that i have not enough time in the day to have a day of my time. So. I decided the best thing to do was to spend some time every day documenting this occurrence.
My happiness in life seems to depend on finding at least 10 minutes a day to sit in silent meditation. Somehow, I am finding it harder and harder to find those 10 minutes. Therefore, I have decided to video myself having 10 minutes of silence each day, and if that is useful for others. Great. If not, it will be useful to me.
Attached is a picture of my beautiful daughter, who I miss while I am away at work.
