Ahem! I am alive. I haven't managed to do the daily journal thing this week, but I have been practicing. Not as much as I want, but as much as I am able, and usually averaging a minimum of 30 minutes a day (with more for several days this week).
I have one major observation for wuwei meditation:
It is maddening!
You see, it has been a while since I have meditated consistently. Last year, actually. Life kinda got in the way, so I haven't had a daily habit of meditating for a while. Even so, I thought that I could make my mind shut up just a little.
But no! Of course, the maddening bit is a good thing. It means I am becoming more aware of my mind, instead of simply ignoring it as I have, apparently, been doing.
But it is maddening!
Okay, but really. Other than that bit, this has been good practice for me. I clearly still have much practice to do, but I am grateful for the experience of being shown how much work I need to do to properly reign in my mind.
