We are discussing meditation and all I can think about is sleeping. How do people meditate? Sitting still and focusing on … nothing. Really? I don’t think I could handle that. All I’d be thinking about is what I should be doing instead.
I like the idea of meditation, but the reality of it just isn’t my style. The minute I sit still and clear my head – I’m asleep. Sound asleep. Maybe I could just consider that a really DEEP meditation. Cause I’m really, really relaxed at that point.
The only time I think I’ve ever meditated was if there was an instance that I couldn’t sleep (doesn’t happen very often). I would lay there and focus on a small body part. For example – my toes. I would picture a ring of light passing over my toes and as the ring encircles my toes, they are completely relaxed. Then the light moves to the arch of my feet and does the same thing, Next my heels, then my ankles… You get the picture. I don’t know that I ever got past my knees before I was already asleep. Lisa taught me that method when I was younger. I only need to use it maybe twice a year. LOL!
Other than that – I don’t meditate. Actually – the idea kind of makes me hysterical. I’ve seen people in movies taking a moment or five to relax and calm their minds, bodies, whatever. Again – I’m just not that kind of person. I guess you could consider my commute to Milwaukee my meditation time. HA! Meditating while driving probably isn’t the wisest thing to do!
Are there others like me? People that can’t comprehend the idea of taking time for meditation? There has to be. I can’t be alone, can I? (I’m sure mom agrees with me!)
Meditation? Eh – I’ll just go to sleep instead.
