Could You Meditate in a Casino?

I actually tried this years back.

I don’t enjoy gambling and was at a casino with a friend. As I sat there on a stool, bored out of my mind, I began to stare at the clock. In doing so I realized I was clearing all thought and noise from my mind (even in this chaotic environment). I began to time myself as to how long I could think nothing.

At first, it was 10 seconds…

Then 30…

Then a whole minute…

Then I realized I had been staring at the wall for a good 20 minutes and my head felt like it had energy around it like it often does in meditation.

I was astounded. I could clear away the lights, the smoke, the loud talking and laughing, the bells, whistles, everything. All just by focusing and staring at a clock.

It was a really good test!

I am finding that 2021 is the world version of that casino.

There is chaos everywhere.

You CAN choose inner focus and BE the clarity in the middle of the storm.

Dr. Seuss on Trial?

The man in a coat enjoys what was wrote.

Do not fear, this is why he is here.

Ignore the creepy stare.

He wont snag you and take you unaware.

Just buy a book

Open your mind and take a look

Inside are marvels of imagination

All done in correct pagination.

Dr. Seuss is loved by one and all.

It matters not those that squawk, and bark, and make such noise

They are not good little girls or boys

In fact they aren’t sure what they are

Confusion has spread too far.

If you are angry with a book

Its best to take a look

inside…
