Firsts and Lasts
Being away from home for sometime allowed me to enter back into my home life with such a fresh perspective. Ever encounter, person, experience was like I was a baby who just came into the world of wonder. This is also highlighted by 2 of the 5 actions of shiva... concealment and revealment. Like playing peeka-boo with a baby each time is fresh and exciting. This is how we can make a lengthy meditation practice feel special each moment of it.
The mystery sustains the meditation... when the outer world is concealed what is the goodness you see inside yourself? What is revealed that you hold precious and can sit with for a long period of time?
If you conceal the outerworld and all you see is good, imagine when you open your eyes for the first time how beautiful of an outerworld you will see.
