a momentarily different view

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
I just saw this: "They say pain is weakness leaving the body." That would be a "they say" that I have never heard.

What a fascinating concept this is! It's the flip side of "What does not kill us makes us stronger." In context, it clearly referred to the physical. Would emotional pain mean weakness leaving the mind? What about the soul?

I philosophize a lot, and on odd topics, sometimes (like housework - yeah, that's thrilling); I wouldn't say that I meditate, though. Truth be told, I don't really know what meditation is. I don't know what the difference is between meditation and regular thought. Maybe it's a difference in degree, maybe it's about depth. Maybe it's a difference regarding whether you are seeking solutions, or just want to examine something. Maybe it's one of those questions that you get a different answer with every new person you ask.

I don't know these things. I've never found the idea of meditation interesting enough to really look into it. I've never really even asked myself these questions before. I don't know that that's changing now, either.

Ignorant though I am about meditation, I am earmarking this thought as one upon which to meditate, if the need to do so arises. It feels right to do so.
