Sitting in the dark has many advantages, for example providing one less distraction for thinking. Most people, however, do not sit in the dark. People normally would not find a slot in their original routine for it, because it is considered creepy. On the other hand, it is considered normal to sleep in the dark; therefore, sitting (or laying) in the dark happens in one form or another. I have always marveled at the people that I know that slept earlier and/or faster than I can. I can’t really do either of them unless I am really, really tired or sick.
The point of all of this nonsense? Oh yeah, I forgot I had to make one.
My mind feels like a machine at night sometimes, and in the day it is less proactive. Nighttime, or just as I am about to go to sleep, is when my mind seems to never stop thinking. There are certain times that it is able to fizz down and I am able to relax for a bit, but those are very rare occasions. I wish there was a way to harness all that energy and make something out of it.
Something like a sun, a blimp, a light, or anything else…something concrete that I can understand and wonder at myself.
Then in the end, I could be a feather, or a breeze in the air for that matter.
Maybe in that way I would let go and just be.
