meditation is like vacation

After a few days of vacationing at the beach you begin to disconnect from the routine behavior in life.  You find the superficial distractions beginning to dissolve.  A few more days and the distractions begin to disappear and feel insignificant.

Your environment is different. The habitual reminders aren’t availlable. The cell phone no longer  important. The lists aren’t important. The computer becomes unwanted.

Becoming more and more submerged into your vacation you see just a few important topics emerge. Realizations. A feeling that you have been distracted away from the very obvious.

Meditation is the same kind of trip. Distractions get set aside so that things can become quiet, like you are submerged in a deep ocean. When things become quiet the really important topics find their way to the surface.

    Thanks for posting – I really appreciate the information and perspective, which gives me some hope that I may one day manage to meditate. I too grew up in a very angry, stressful home, and I’m pretty sure my own anger (deeply contained, of course) is the cause of my MS. I really hope you post on dealing with anger, or letting it go.
