Patience

I can relate with students when we ask them to talk about their experience of a meditation sitting and they don’t know what to say. I don’t know what to write about this month. So, instead I chose an image that expresses my state of mind. We can compare this image to a process we might find ourselves in, in meditation; not empty of content, but hard to describe. In it, the variety of experiences do not hold together in narratives, and there is no desire for them to form. There might be a mood we can catch, or quality that resonates and has meaning for us. Sometimes, just that is enough.
