One day I just realized I couldn’t go on like that. That was when I became New Marisol–Marisol who’s always put together and totally zen. It was in good ol’ Jack’s poetry, actually:
it fades, and thought never comes-and
with joy you realize for the first time
“thinking’s just like not thinking-
So I don’t have to think
That’s almost exactly how I started to feel after meditating for awhile. I couldn’t get there at first, of course, but soon enough. It wasn’t that I found peace through meditation. It was more like I found nothingness–this big, vast, empty void. And that’s where the peace comes in, at least for awhile. Stay in there too long, and I start to get kinda creeped out, ya know?
Snippet Saturday is my chance to share bits and pieces of my writing.
