Meditation is a full-time job. Of course, we meet our basic responsibilities, but these are simple and few. We meditate when we observe without comment every act we perform and every thought we think. Like standing outside of ourselves until it’s time for bed.
Perhaps you’re aware of a waning interest in your thoughts. That’s a good thing! Thoughts depend for their survival on one thing—our interest in them. Less interest, fewer thoughts, more space. Paul spoke of this as a process of putting aside childish things.
The way of Tao: Less, not more. Fewness, not many. The path of under-stimulation.
More is a chore. Less is best.
For good communication, words are sometimes helpful and even necessary. But economy must be practiced. Words that have no meaning obscure and interfere with words that do. Lao Tzu: “More words count less.”
