Keep Your Mind in the Middle of Your Tongue
This is what I read about in a meditation technique... ( don't ask me why, I was reading it in the first place??!!!! ) It goes like this...
With mouth slightly open,
keep mind in the middle of the tongue.
Or, as breath comes silently in,feel the sound “HH.”
I tried, really, I did...but then I was in tears.....My tongue was dry and I was thirsty...and I forgot that I was supposed to be meditating...I forgot the purpose and forgot the need..all I needed was a glass of water....
Did I do it right??? No!! How could I ???
How can one whose mind is always on a world tour, trying to gather the snowflakes from Boston, the dew from Delhi, the smell of the pines from Manali, the lingering fragrances of a long gone childhood nestled in the wooden flooring of and old house in Mysore.., the mouthwatering smells of the masalas, that those hotel guys make so early in the morning, that you're dying to go knock on his door and ask him for some.....How can I??,
When the mind is focussed on getting the folds on the towel right, I need to focus on the mind which is right now wondering if the sambhar should have 2 teaspoons of coconut or 3 or whether Gajar ka Halwa should be made today or tomorrow??!! I also was trying to look from the corner of my eye, if my husband would walk in to see his wife, doing some dog like poses!!!
How can I gather all of them from nowhere and bring it all in to the centre of the tongue...such a small space for undefined numbers...Wouldn't they get too crowded and start a war out there????
Is that why, I can't just stop myself from chattering, nineteen to the dozen...my hands flying about in all directions trying to express all those words that can be fully understood even if I didn't show people the silly visual antics....
"What are you doing when you are thinking? Talking within. Can you think anything without talking within?"
This line I understood...oh so well....I do the talking, be it in the mind, mouth, hands, eyes..I do the talking!!!
So i'm still normal!!! Or am I???
Do you ever do the talking from within??
