Meditation in May & Farting!
Day 3 - well I managed to meditate for a full 22 minutes with NO INTERRUPTIONS! At long bloody last! Maybe those pesky callers have got the message ... DON'T call me between 6.00 - 6.30am. I felt really good afterwards - actually finished the guided meditation. Which may have been the problem yesterday, and why I was so tired. I got rudus-interruptus at 17 mins and the softly-spoken lady had not grounded me properly or brought me back to the present. I was obviously off in some other parallel universe, floating in a lovely bubble of spiritually-enhancing other-worldness. Today, she brought me back gently to the real world of my desk and computer and phones. Nice :)
I must admit that during the meditation, my mind kept wandering. Mostly about what I was going to write in this blog. But I know that's normal and will get better the more I practice. Not the writing in this blog bit (although goodness knows I could do with writing better), the mind wandering bit.
Anyway, afterwards, I went off to peel a couple of hard-boiled eggs for breakfast (faddy diet), and made the office stink like I had been farting turkey and sprouts all morning. Not nice :(
Talking of which, I sometimes think how weird it would be if farts were visible. You know, like little bubbles popping out behind us, giving us away. And what if they were colour-coded: tiny, odourless pale yellow bubbles behind little kids, larger beige ones behind adults with normal digestion, purple ones behind people who smell like flowers and eat only organic vegetables, dangerous orange/green toxic ones behind yobbos who've been on the beer and curry the night before, and nasty brown ones behind elderly people with incontinence issues.
Imagine, standing in line for your morning coffee and seeing all these different coloured bubbles popping out of people's bottoms! Anyway, just thought I would share that. Not very ethereal or spiritual, I suppose, but these are the random thoughts that go through my head.
