Be well..

Exactly. I like this. For me, the experience is completely free, I might not experience the things I spoke above before any other time ever again, it is completely spontanious. Anything can happen lol

When the spiritual teacher and his disciples began their evening meditation, a cat who lived in the monastery made such noise that it distracted them. One day the teacher ordered that the cat be tied up during the evening practice. Years later, when the teacher died, the cat continued to be tied up during the meditation session. And when the cat eventually died, another cat was brought to the monastery and tied up. Centuries later, learned descendants of the spiritual teacher wrote scholarly treatises about the religious significance of tying up a cat for meditation practice.

I got bored with the slow evening we seem to be having and was rooting around in the cellar and I found this interesting little thread.
