Some of you have noticed that the comic strips running in the paper now are riffing on meditation. Do I meditate? Sort of. I am very lucky that my line of work, most days, allows me to take a short afternoon nap. I close my eyes, and very soon I’m not thinking about much of anything. Fifteen minutes later, I feel great! Unfortunately, most people have a job that won’t permit them to close their eyes for up to half an hour at a time. That’s where meditation comes in! You can accomplish similar results with your eyes open! Now, I know there are many jobs would not permit even this, such as bus driver, but there are many jobs that will. I’ve had a few.
