Hello friends and Imaginary Readers,
I know my posting has been somewhat sparse of late, and for the next few weeks, it’s likely to get even more so. In the last few days, I’ve gotten involved with some super-heavy meditation regimens — like hours and hours per day — and there just isn’t time for much else.
I’ll keep up with my urgent email as able — but if you’ve written and I haven’t responded, please don’t think I’m ignoring you. Rather, I’m ignoring the whole world. ;) But this is why I came here, to have the ‘inner experiences’ and really dig at those concepts of consciousness, soul, and enlightenment.
Since getting into the mantra-based meditation practices this last year and a half, I’ve had some interesting experiences — physical reactions, changes in thought habits, and most of all a sense of approaching the cusp of understanding Important Things. This is the first time I’ve really tried to throw myself into the deep end of the pool…and at times it’s been frustrating, boring, and at turns really interesting as suddenly something in my brain went click and the mantra began running much, much faster sometimes. Also occasionally getting odd physical sensations, like being flushed or hot, or swoopy dream-state when moving about in the so-called real world. Sometimes headaches…but I get those regardless. Also a feeling like my head is super full.
Anyway, if I have time, I’ll post now and then. Perhaps put up a poem. But I didn’t want you folks to think I’d suddenly lost interest in blogging. I’m still here. Just gonna go do some spiritual spelunking for a time.
p.s. Still very pleased about the U.S. mid-term election results. I hope Rumsfeld’s resignation is just the first of many.
