- Jan 25, 2003They can be all sorts of things. The most pleasant is just taking a
walk or a ride with someone else driving and, while leaving the
words in your mind to the barest minimum, reach out an imaginary
hand and stroke everything you pass until you can actually feel it
so well that it's as if you were really out there. At first, you
won't even be able to find the location of what you see, but when
your brain makes the switch it will know exactly where in space
When you walk, again let words dwindle, and put your attention away
from your body and out into what's around you. Imagine that the
whole world in front of you is your body. Go to places that are
considered ugly and look at the light and shadow and color instead
of noticing by definition what it is you see. Imagine you'd been
blind your whole life and you're seeing for the first time.
The not pleasant things you can do are done sitting at attention
lotus style. I say not pleasant because they aren't relaxation type
meditation but more of mental tricks to confuse your brain and end
up alot closer in a hurry to the just plain nothing. You'd start by
forcing your attention forward into the dark space and never letting
your thoughts or your eyes drift off the far side or into your head.
You have to be able to look at all the little flickers of lights and
static fuzz behind your eyelids as if you had your eyes open and
were reading. Then, project words 'out there' as if you were writing
them. Use the same short boring words or small phrases, always
looking as if you could actually see them but never imagining up in
your head as would be the natural way to imagine, but always forward
into space. Then, keep changing the distance and the size of these
same words from tiny in the far distance to middle distance and huge
right under your nose. Make the sounds of the letters as you do this
but don't think about their meaning. Mainly concentrate like a first
grader with his notebook. Do it right before bed, then lay right
down to go to sleep.
