Last sunday in church we meditated for 3 minutes solid, concentrating on the wind coming out our nostrils and cooling our upper lips. It was so difficult to keep one's mind on that one thing, but I tried, gamely.

Are you coming next week?

Prentiss Riddle

I once heard of some pain scale in which 10 was "being boiled in oil while eaten alive from the inside out by mutant spiders" or whatever and 1 was "the discomfort of sitting in an easy chair". The idea being that there's no zero point for physical discomfort. Even the easy chair has its annoyances, but fortunately we can tune them out -- most of the time.

the mankoski pain scale, maybe. I am a big fan of it - a very useful thing.

The first time I tried meditation was in a pregnancy class when we were all enormous.The room was on the 4th floor but suddenly a man sprang through the window from the fire escape. Then freaked and ran zig zaggily through our massive recumbent bodies to the door.Turned out he was a rapist who haunted the appartment block and had been tempted by the open window and our instructor's low gentle voice. I have found it almost impossible to meditate since without the image of his stunned face rising to the surface.I thought you might like me to share this with you.

Oh my god, Iris, what a great story.
