  1. First off I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

    • Thank you, Polly!
      Sorry for the delay with responding, but I am very new at this blog thing, and did not see your comments and question until now. For some reason your question was in a “Pending” section… which I had not noticed (and am unfamiliar with because of being a blogging newbie).

      Regarding your question: There is no “centering” of one’s self. Centering, for many people, ends up being rather like a form of self-hypnosis; and the results might seem to be impressive… but they are usually just the rearranged thoughts of others. As such, there might be relatively new things in what is offered/discovered; however, usually it is nothing really deep and creative in the truly profound sense. With regard to what takes place with me: I have always, even as a child, been appreciative of inner silence and direct perception without thought. There’s no method to attain that… because it’s not some kind of un-dynamic thing that is a mere result (from practicing something). However, if each thought and feeling is observed, as each takes place throughout the day… and observed without separation between you and what each is… then spontaneous periods of silence may occur without merely craving for them. They (these periods of silence) may merely be the space between two thoughts; but that is enough! Measuring the duration is merely the result of thought/thinking. Thanks much! I’ll try to write more about it in future writings.
