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.
