The world at my feet

There is premeditation everywhere, it is the planning function of thought that rehearses a hearse’s journey until the possibility of acting without failure appears, until the thought predominates, then dominates that “there is the possibility of getting away with it”, without dying on the stage that is the material world.

Premeditation is to meditation
What prediction is to diction
What presence is to Essence.

There is practice – of course, the inference that leads to a conference, a reference that melts the hard deference, the circumference of a concentration, a single joint centration, practical like any joint, flexible as a knee – that makes perfect.

How to move from premeditation to meditation? By means of a mediation, through engaging in mediation until your own “t” appears.

Getting stuck in premeditation blocks the joy of being.

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy”.
JALAL AD-DIN RUMI 1207-1273
