nobody, nowhere, nothing

21 February 2009

"Busy life has a keen sense for the nothing that isn't there, but no sense for the nothing that is."

Looking back over the past decade of my life, I'm in awe of how much I managed to cram into the days....full time work (often 6 days a week), regular yoga practice, yoga teaching, cooking for and supporting my son, maintaining and nurturing fragile relationships with partners, children, family members, friends, getting away on weekends to surf or go bush. It's been an interesting experience to watch it all ever-so-slowly fall away...

Now I just work, and I walk the dog, and sometimes I practice yoga...and I spend all the extra time wondering why I do anything at all.

It's time to move on. Life has changed. It's time to begin the quieter and more serious work of contemplative meditation.

And develop a connection with the nothing that is there.

In this morning's meditation, it occurred to me that my practice is as much about turning the volume up on silence as it is turning the volume down on everything else.

Of course, writing that out makes it sound loopy even to myself, but there I am. ;-)

What a valuable insight... adjusting the volume up on silence and down on everything else.
I love how you see and express those things in words Greenfrog. Even just reading those words I can feel the quietness increasing and subsuming all my outer concerns.
Thank you...
