In that sense it’s a bit funny to write a blog about meditation, cause in the basic practice of calming the mind - through watching the breath for example - you’re supposed to cut all identification with this kind of inner blogging and come home to what I call a blogging-less state. Not being dumbfounded, but a crispy clear dawn before any heaviness of the daily weblogs sets in.
You might think that in these days of Internet communication this is quite a hard act to follow. True, but actually it’s always been a hard act to follow. Some have made exceptional attempts though, and since we’re all humans with the same pride, ignorance, aggression, desire, hope, fear, jealousy and what have you, it’s good to find out what they’ve said. You can think about it, chew on it and let the echoes of these age-old insights reverberate into the space of your being. Then, who knows, between all your twittering a wisdom-blog might slowly start to manifest. Listen well. At first it will be hidden in the multitude of voices, then as time goes by, and you keep studying and practicing, you might develop some discriminating awareness. The wisdom-blog stands out as a voice of sanity, a teacher with a teaching, pointing beyond itself to a blogging-less state, open, unspoken, and miraculously unheard of.
So take a deep breath, and let all blogging boggle along. The past is gone and the future hasn’t risen. At the end of the day, nothing can be said or done that makes you live this moment more authentic than to live it right now. You have no choice. Isn’t that a relief?
