Cling to Nothing

Calm mind. No thoughts, or hardly any. Body fading. Only breath, slow. And the feel of heart pulsing, all along. And the sound of clock, ticking, gently. Sinking, deeper and deeper, into concentrated state. It's bliss in there. Losing track of time. Jarring sound of front door, slammed, interrupts. Frustration takes over breath. Wise mind steps in. I was clinging to happy feeling, and quietness. Now, I am suffering the effect. Another lesson in impermanence, and the foolishness of clinging mind.

"Cling to nothing" - Achaan Jummien
