Zen Spot #340 - Mindfulness, meditation and the gooey mind November 30, 2019 00:00

The gooey

It took twenty minutes of sitting at my laptop today, staring into space, to come up with this one sentence. 

No matter. Having failed, it occurred to me, just before I got up from my chair to clean the kitchen, that the failure was a gift. Today’s gooey mind was meditative. Waiting without time. Searching the gooey without a goal. In my head, but not in my head.

One sentence.
