Imagine that zazen or sitting meditation is more than sitting in a full or half lotus posture on a zafu. Imagine further, that I teach a friend of mine how to sit correctly on an old zafu I have; within less than twenty seconds psychic energy starts to develop in my friend. The longer he sits, in fact, the stronger the energy. In almost a minute my friend stops zazen.
Forget what I said earlier about imagine. It actually happened.
In my case, after three minutes of zazen the psychic energy is quite strong. I decided to stop. This experience doesn’t go away for at least several hours. So what is happening? I don’t know. But something odd is happening.
In a previous blog in which I mentioned “a strong magnetic-like field” well, this field is still developing in an odd and spectacular way.
I am beginning to think the earth is waking up, spiritually. It could be that the Buddhist deity Pṛthvī who protected Gautama Buddha; who also bore witness to his enlightenment better known as Pṛthvī Mātā or mother earth, is back.
Without going too far out on a speculative limb, zazen has now become the surefire way to directly experience the animative principle (or pure Mind) in a most powerful way. For my Hindu friends, it is instant kundalini—sit in a cross legged posture and you’re there.
I probably should say, “What the fuck is going on!” I remember back in the 1960s I was a Zen monk struggling to sit in zazen for around forty minutes. Now it is only a few seconds and something extraordinary happens.
