… and float downstream
Guess I should make note of the three-year anniversary of me beginning the daily practice of Vipassana, or Buddhist insight meditation, here tonight. Actually, I took the first class on Monday, July 30, 2007, so tomorrow’s the anniversary. Anyway, I’ve managed to sit in meditation every day for three years, which is kinda surprising for such a historically undisciplined lout as yours truly.
I’d like to go into detail about expectations and the almost incremental or even glacial benefits, but there’s something else I’d like to get on about this evening instead. Suffice it to say that I’m probably calmer and less rattled and slightly less inclined to get butthurt over marginal stuff. With special emphasis on the word slightly. I still can be quite the maroon in the Bugs Bunny sense.
Anyway, more on this subject later in the weekend, perhaps. —Jackson Griffith
