Jed Rant: How to Walk... duh....
« on: August 18, 2018, 12:05:48 pm »
Dear Reader:

I am going to teach you how to walk. Well, that's patently ridiculous so what am I on about. Let me share a contemplation that you can do while walking... and you might experience quite a change in your experience of such a simple thing.

So, first off, go for a walk, but make sure that it's a pretty simple path that you are familiar with. While you walk, your attention will, quite naturally, be on the environment, i.e., out there. Now as you walk, can you get a sense that you are creating the scene. It's true, that is what you are doing. Next, relax your focus and let your eyes slightly cross. While you do that, look at that is looking ''out''. I know it might sound strange, but just get a sense of what is ''in here''. (your ''here'', certainly not mine).

You start looking out then you look in at what was just looking out. Alternate this looking out and in. Don't think you know what your experience should be or will be ... just experience what arises. Also, I suggest you don't just do this once... stick with it and you will find something out... I can't tell you what, but you will find something out, and finding out stuff is fun.

Love ya, Jed.

Jed, what do you mean by “slightly cross your eyes”? Googled it, found a definition of some medical condition  :D

One might describe it as ''hard'' and ''soft'' eyes. Relax your gaze. If there was a car accident in front of you then you would be focusing ''hard'' in order to see what happened. If you were relaxing in a field of flowers you focus would be ''soft''. That's about the best I can do to describe it.

Love ya, Jed.

Cool I'll try this for sure. Soft focus like when you are trying to see those deliberately hidden objects in an abstract pattern?

Yes... that's a much better explanation than mine.

Cheers.

If I'm creating this scene, then the sense that "I'm creating this scene" will also be made up, how can I trust that sense?

Who said you have to trust that sense, or any sense... or, more to the point, anyone.

Love ya, Jed.

I see a dumbass creating a scene and thinking she’s a dumbass.  She doesn’t even know if that’s true though and all definition collapses in on itself.  Ridiculous.

All that crumbles is not IT... unless it's a Peach Crumble... and that is really IT! Well, almost IT. Had a Mango Crumble yesterday  and that is definitely the **IT.

Love ya, Jed.
