But as I walk, there is always something or other going on inside my head; usually it's trying to work-out how something should be done. What would be the best route for some electrical wiring, what timber should I use for some little project, or have I got enough sand for something or other?
Occasionally other less innocent subjects get tossed about up there. I still worry about the horrendous orange wall, I worry about the state of the world (especially the UK), and I worry about relatively unimportant health issues.
Walking in deserted woodland must be the closest thing to meditation without actually having to sit on a mat in the lotus position; but clearing my mind of unwanted thoughts seems impossible.
I need to learn some method of 'brainwashing' myself. To be able to have NOTHING going through my head; to be void of all thoughts, problems, or emotions.
Maybe no such method exists, but occasionally it would be very welcome.
