What I found especially beneficial at this site was the discussion of variations of posture. As I’m adopting a more traditional posture in my meditation it’s been helpful to see midway steps to help ease the transitioning. As one kind commenter shared in my previous entry, a more traditional posture may help avoid the drowsiness that can sneak in and interrupt my meditation (another mentioned he’d be likely to fall asleep in a rocking chair as well).
Nacho, of WoodMoor Village, left a comment on “Stillness vs. Stagnation” (he was, in fact, the one who commented on the rocking chair) that included, among other suggestions, a tea and coffee drinking meditation.
After reading his comment I visited WoodMoor Village, where I spent some time enjoying his writings. Of general interest may be “Zen & Sex,” which clarifies the Buddhist approach to sex and sexuality nicely, as mindful rather than prudish.
I enjoy sharing music, book and film recommendations with others, especially here at FrozenTruth.com. Of late, though, I’ve accumulated quite a list of art I wish to share and have not yet. I hope to find the time this week to sweep over some of the most memorable discoveries I’ve made. For now, I suggest you listen to samples of Tracker’s Polk, atmospheric music perfect for late nights and long treks.
The image accompanying this entry is one of several I took on Monday here on the patio of the hotel I work at. Sitting where I do while using my laptop I’m able to see the sun rise each morning. On Monday the color of the sky in the morning made that birch on the lake shore appear especially beautiful.
