Immediately after finishing my previous post I put on my Oculus VR, opened up the meditation app and found myself sitting in a grass field. My favorite meditation practice is Zen, where the goal is to have a clear mind like the sky and to just ‘be.’ Thoughts are like white clouds that arrive out of nowhere and you let them just pass on through neither fixating on them nor hindering them.
I wanted to write this post right at the beginning of the holiday season which I consider to be right before Halloween! But with two kids now I find that my free time has evaporated to approximately zero. The only time I have to myself is very early in the morning, around 5:00 am or when the wife and boys are at preschool/shopping. It just happens I have a moment now and am determined to get this post finished.
So I’ve turned on “This is Halloween” by The Vitamin String Quartet to try and transport my mind back a month or so.
