Yesterday I took my very first intro meditation class with my new lady friend chuck*. There will be more on the meditation experience as the classes progress (twice a week for two more weeks) and I may just graduate to intermediate. We'll see. But as for now I am realizing that my soul resides in the middle of my forehead as a bright spot of light and that controlling your thoughts, controls your actions, and in the end controls who you are. (Did you enjoy the foot notes version of class #1? that will be free, except of course if you'd like to donate, there is a box near the door)
Today I exchanged some emails with lady friend chuck*:
me: ps. my mantra for the day has been "you are a happy, bright person". hehe
LFC: mine is you are nice to everyone. there will be chocolate.
me: thank god you're not super reverent about this. It would be so much less fun.
LFC: i bet that weird dude has been chanting ommm shannnnty at work all day!
me: I really really hope so. And I really hope I can not bust out laughing when we share our experiences on tues and I Really hope his friend is just as weird. I call that positive thinking. I'm embracing the hell out of their karmic energy.
LFC: One can not help but state the obvious when talking about weirdos. That dude was odd.
me: can i put this conversation on my blog? I can take your name out if you would prefer. Do you have a particular alias you desire?
LFC: ha. sure. hopefully the dude would never see if you don't put the center name.
call me chuck. :)
me: ok, but you have to be my lady friend chuck. full on "lady friend chuck said".
And so it goes.
