Lotus Sutra

Good morning, you beautiful people. For those select few who don't already start your day this way, might I suggest clearing your mind before a stressful or productive day with the Lotus Sutra.

My suggestion is to listen to it in head phones (I dare you), but if you listen to it through speakers turn up the volume to the point where it drowns out everything else. As you listen to it, let the sound wash out all other thought. Embrace the nonsense.

Part of meditation is to perceive without judgement. This is so far from ordinary that the nonsense should produce an unbiased (without interpretation) response in the brain to what is happening. I know it might be a bit different than your normal routine (or what is acceptable in conventional society), but give it a shot. 

 If you listen to it all the way through, it will greatly help you start your day off on the right note (eh, eh, anyone?). If you start to feel vibrations or tingling sensations, focus on filling and spreading them throughout your entire body as you listen. Let go for just a few minutes at the beginning and end of your day. 

I'll let you be the judge as to how it changes your life. Let me know if you listen to it all the way through.
