My mind is empty today. As in pin-drop silence. There are no musings hanging around. Not even a trace of thoughts from yesterday.
It’s not the effect of meditation, I know that much. It’s as if every bit of thought decided to stay away from my line of sight because otherwise, I would write about them; after all, like a paparazzi following around a celebrity, I have been after each and every one of my thoughts to write about them. So they decided they didn’t need this attention and abandoned my mind leaving behind nothing but emptiness.
But now I’m thinking about the significance of emptiness. I feel particularly good about this state my mind is experiencing. No distracting thoughts. No thoughts attempting to grab my attention.
My mind is in a meditative state.
Well, as soon as I start doing other things they will be back, musings vying for my attention, distracting my mind, won’t they?
