    No Mind

    For about 10 seconds today, I had it. Just thought I'd let you all know. It's very nice.

          the old " doing without doing'", or effortless effort, you never entered that state in other activities? , like driving, or doing your taxes?

                Driving.

                I hit an off duity cop. Zoning out = BAD.

                On the good side, his SUV was unarmed. The bad side.... my car was trashed.

                  No mind for 10 seconds? How do you know it was 10 seconds if you had no mind?

                      Do you meditate, JKDChick?

                        Ah I see JKDChick...well then, kick ass. No mind has happened to me a few times, but I'm trying to get it more often. I tend to fight with the things I've been taught that way, rather than thinking about them as I do them.

                            No, I don't meditate. I used to.
