Put your feet up, they said. Sit back and just take a few deep breaths they said. Close your eyes they said. Calm will come, they assured me, if I did just those few little things. The trick, they told me, was t just keep trying these things and eventually it would click. After that, they promised that I’d be meditating with the rest of them.
So I put my feet up. I put them up higher figuring maybe it was a blood to brain deal. Basically I may have pulled something in the back of my leg, aka a hamstring, with my endeavour to make this work. Needless to say this was a bit of a failure.
Next I tried sitting back and taking a few deep breaths. What I discovered is sitting back and trying to breathe deeply isn’t the best combination. However I did discover that if you breathe deeply in rapid succession, it’s a bit dizzying!
When I closed my eyes I realized just how tired my ended were. They ached in a way, followed by tearing up and leading to a bit of stinging sensation. Needless to say I opened them up again. When I tried this trick again, my eyes still weren’t happy.
So now I’m wondering how many times do I have t keep doing this before it works. I’m also wondering exactly who they are and how do they know all this stuff! 😮
