just sitI like the PsychCentral community: it’s vibrant, dynamic, interactive.  There are many online forums for a blogger to post his/her musings.  But here, something’s always hopping.

Try this with me…

Step 1: Just sit down today.

No, not to meditate.  Not to watch TV.  Not to eat.  Not to rest.  But just to sit.  No need to close your eyes.  No need to watch your breath.  Just try “just sitting.”  Sometime now.  You see, “now” is a very elastic concept.  In fact, “now” is the only time that exists.  There never was a “past” time.  There never will be a “future” time.  There is nothing but now, one continuous life-long now per person.  So, some time in the Near Now, try “just sitting.”  I might or might not come with a step 2.  We’ll just have to see…

At any rate, be well.
