Spring note


Sungazing  is a crisis of common sense.

In a few hours time I had brought my eys to such a pass that I could look upon no bright object with either eye but I saw the sun before me, so that I durst neither write nor read but to recover the use of my eyes shut myself up in my chamber made dark for three days together & used all means to divert my imagination from the Sun. For if I thought upon him I presently saw his picture though I was in the dark. … For some months after the spectrum of the sun began to return as often as I began to meditate upon the phænomenon, even tho I lay in bed at midnight with my curtains drawn. But now I have been very well for many years, tho I am apt to think that if I durst venture my eyes I could still make the phantasm return by the power of my fansy.


If you are able to look directly into the sun..... it's actually black! So crazy! Because I sunbathe a lot as well as sun gaze... then one day I noticed that the longer I stared directly into the sun, the darker it became. Then it was totally black and there was another sun Behind it!!! It was a pinkish color and some blue. But mostly the sun is black.

Why stop ?

Well , dont .

I wanted to start my little homework with a joke, something to loosen people up and connect us to the here-and-now, something that might establish me as at least good-natured, a little bit clever, knowledgeable person.We are living in a different world now, and I am even less funny now than I was then when I was starting this blog.Except for meditation. I can think and write about meditation, because I first came to it due to suffering, and it is one of the few things that helps me deal with suffering, mine or others’.Or maybe I am just voayer to mine and others problems.

I found that meditation is very helpful.Meditation improves creativity, flexible thinking, concentration, and decision-making. It improves resilience and lowers stress, which is measurable in lowered blood pressure and heart rates. Meditation will feed your writing, making it easier for you to access the writing zone, manage your time so you can write, and bounce back from the inevitable negative events of life so you can spend more time being productive and less time down the YouTube rabbit hole.

One last thing: when I was younger, I worried that if I ever found a way to silence my inner demons, that I’d lose the urge to write. I worried that I’d lose that urge to create, to try to understand the world through words. Meditation may seem like that kind of help not to mention the ability to access quiet, stillness, and concentration in a world of constant, instant connection.


When I discover that I’ve got plenty of crazy for a lifetime.

Doctor


The war for drugs escalates at this time of year. Too many family reunions, dinners and parties mean that old and young alike are desperate for their meds. If you're new at this, I recommend something from the benzodiazepine family. Xanax, Ativan and Librium will do nicely if all you need to do is get through Christmas lunch without cutting a sibling's throat. However, if you're trying to avoid exposing Uncle March for the paedophile that he is, you might need one of the neuroleptics. Thorazine works well, but get your timing right. You don't want to be slack-jawed and drooling into the turkey with your paper hat over one eye while everyone else is pulling crackers.
