So what, you just sit there?
That is correct
How do you mean?
It is a bit like being a self-drive electric car
That goes in to this room once a week
To plug into the mains and get charged back up
And what does the energy give you
Don’t you have that already?
I do. But I use it up
I get tired
It needs topping up
By just sitting?
By just sitting
But what do you do?
You don’t ‘Do’
You just ‘Be’
What do you think about?
The idea is to step back from your thoughts
Well how on earth do you do that?
By observing them with warm curiosity
And then letting them continue on their way
Like waves that you choose not to surf
That sounds too hard
Well, it isn’t easy
What does the energy feel like?
But not just mine
A mutual fizz
That everyone in the room is party to
A person could see it effervesce on the building’s exterior walls
If they only had the eyes to know how to look
That all sounds weird
It is a little odd that is true
So you just sit?
Don’t you get fidgety?
So what do you do then?
It is one of the disciplines
To look at what comes up with curiosity
And then let it move on past
I couldn’t do it
You’d be surprised
But what is the point?
Couldn’t you get that from something else?
Perhaps, to a point
Slightly different sorts of energy though
This is not just that blue sort of energy
That you feel in your body, in your muscles
No? Then what else?
I don’t know
Is it always green?
Then why green today?
Because today it was green
So how do you feel once you’ve done it?
Is that it?
Yes, but also to all things outside
Yes, all people
All natural features
That sounds quite nice
It is the essence of quite niceness
From just sitting
It’s still a bit of an odd thing to do though right?
Yes, it is a bit unusual
I still don’t think I could do it
Until they are doing it
So, green you say?
