Tumblr Meditation

I find that scrolling down the dashboard in tumblr is a good analogy for meditation.

In meditation, we sit, focus our attention on our breath, and thoughts drift in and out of our awareness.

In tumblr, we sit, focus our attention on the screen, and posts drift in and out of our awareness.

In meditation, we may get carried away with a thought. We may follow that thought for a few seconds or a few minutes and then come back to our breath.

In tumblr, we may get carried away with a post. We may follow a link for a few seconds or a few minutes and then come back to our dashboard.

In meditation, we try to judge our thoughts with kindness and compassion.

In tumblr, when we judge the posts we can only click on ‘like’.

In meditation, when our thoughts stop we achieve awakening.

In tumblr there is no end. We need to stop and meditate.
