grape juice, pretzels and other things

yesterday.. for 1000th time i gave an answer the question “why do you meditate?”.

“there is one reason I think you should do zazen” i said to her so glibly….
“Grape Juice and Rold’s Golds pretzels…”
I said “every so often , right after meditation, I enjoy some Juice and pretzels. my senses are so alive… I’m in tune with every detail…. kind of like a religious experience…its remarkable.”

She looked at me and said ” sound kind of… orgasmic!”

i replied, ” well sot of… but during meditation I’m not really trying to get any where… and i am usually doing it alone. Afterwards it’s just a little reward…

“Oh same here!” she giggled… With that, we moved on to a different topic…

Today, during my daily zazen meditation, i couldn’t clear my mind. all i could think of was grape juice and pretzels (?!?)

I think someone has just screwed with my head.

    indeed. Thanks for stopping in sulochanosho…

    it funny how when we quiet our thinking, remain in the present moment….
    we realize how detailed bodily senses truly are.
