Lately I have been doing a daily 'bad meditation'. About half the time I don't want to meditate, I sit anyway. Sometimes I sit without a cushion, since getting to the cushion is a perceived difficulty. I may even spend the time I sit chanting.
Luckily I have no sense of defeat or disappointment. Not sitting formally might just be too bad ... I am going to sit now. Gently, eyes shut lightly rather than the more usual eyes gently focused. Bad is good too.
Do you have 'bad' patches? Anything good to mention?
"In the West, I do not think it advisable to follow Buddhism. Changing religions is not like changing professions. Excitement lessens over the years, and soon you are not excited, and then where are you? Homeless inside yourself."
– The Dalai Lama, quoted in Tibet, Tibet by Patrick French
Wot? Haz I been following the wrong seating plan?
