—Nawang Gehlek Rimpoche, “The Real Enemy”
Wednesday, April 11, 2018
What I used to do is wait in line and I’d do mantra or breathing. I’d go into my Vipassana meditation. But now I’m interested in whether waiting in line at the bank can itself be the thing. I notice my impatience, notice the feeling in my feet as I am standing there, notice the different levels of reality of the people I’m looking at. Am I seeing a bank teller or am I seeing the Divine Mother as a bank teller? I allow myself to play with the moment more, still dealing with the stuff of the moment rather than going away.
