There are two days in my life that have left a bigger impact on me than any other days: the day I learned Vipassana and the day my son was born.
When asked when one should first sit a course, Goenka
answered in the mother’s womb, before birth. My son was fortunate to
experience this. The course was quite late in the pregnancy, and he was
already a little wild. Placing my hand on his mother’s belly, I would
often feel him moving about, kicking his little legs. But during the
course he calmed down completely, and it continued like that until he
was born. Even after he was born, he seemed calmly aware of his surroundings,
always looking around with curiosity.
In sync with a metronome—
it’s time to let go.
Cause and effect rules:
All actions are subject to
A spawn of nature
thrusted into existence,
hence the momentum.
