Oom Shaaanty

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.


  1. Meditation classes! Sounds like you're having fun with it! I've always kinda wanted to try that thanks for updating on how it's going :)

  2. Yeah - it's going ok. I think I'm gonna download some meditation stuff off itunes for my ipod. I think it will be nice for lying in bed or sitting quietly. I'm imagining waiting for the dr and zening out, etc. :)
