  • Re: How much would you say your environment effects your meditation?

    Another external element that I have found very helpful in meditation is the sight of the head monk stalking around the zendo with his keisaku. His mere presence is a powerful inducement to maintaining alertness.

    In the aforementioned zendo, the head monk confined his activities to gently poking those who seemed about to nod off, which I thought was a pity. I often wished he would give me a good whack between the shoulder blades - had he done so, I am certain I would be an enlightened being today. B)

    Trump really worries me.

    Yeah, he's giving me ulcers and has turned me into a bloody activist, signing petitions and writing letters half the morning. Everything he does is bad, but I am most concerned about his disdain for and disregard of the environment. At this rate we will soon be enjoying all the environmental safeguards of the 19th century, but with a human population seven times larger than we had then.
