Well, last weeks sit seems so easy now. We only had to control our physical body by remaining still for fifteen minutes or more. Which in all reality it takes a lot of skill to do this. Now this weeks assignment is a bit harder. Well, can I say a LOT HARDER!!!!!! Well, we start out the same as last week by picking the same comfy chair and choosing our preferred time of the day and continue with sitting perfectly still. Now comes the hard part. NO THOUGHTS!!! Wow. Now if you remember what your sits were like last week when you were trying to control your body. You should remember your brain was going a hundred miles an hour thinking about every thing like the itch on my foot, then how can I do this fifteen minute thing it is just to long. Your mind raced the whole time from subject to subject well mine did anyway. So now we have our assignment this week, What are we going to do with all these thoughts? So the first couple of days did not go so well. I was battling the thoughts and they were winning. As the week progressed I tried to picture a black hole or emptiness. I would just try to gaze at it in my mind and try to quiet my mind. I got glimpses of silence in my mind. UREKKA small improvement. It reminded me of the time I went to a float place. A float is where you lay down in epsom salt water and float on the top of the water like in the dead sea. You are in a pod that allows you to close the lid and have complete isolation from the world. You get rid of most of your senses. It’s dark no sight, you put in ear plugs to keep the water out and sound. Even touch is also gone you don’t even feel the water. While doing the float every sense is controlled. The only thing left is your mind. It was quite a long float with me and my mind. So many thoughts came flying in it was so noisy in my mind yet I was in the most tranquil place to rest. My body was resting but my mind was racing. After a while being in the float I was able to just focus on one or two items to think about and enjoy the experience.
