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 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.
