You're sitting in meditation, alone. Doing nothing, just being. Something is happening, it could be anything, infinite possibilities. But you cannot know it. You're just sitting for some time, alone. Things go on happening, but you're just sitting there, alone. There is nothing forcing you to sit. There is nothing forcing you to be somewhere else. You're sitting, breathing, just being. Nothing else. You simply are. Whatsoever happens, happens. Unconcerned about it, yet mindful of the time. Just sitting, thinking, not thinking. Thoughts are themselves. Fortunately you don't have any plans, so you're just sitting. Not bothering about this or that. Not working for anyone, just being. Alive, breathing, conscious. Alone, nobody around, silent yet actively listening. Then, you stand up from your sitting, nothing going on, not much of anything to do but be. So why not let it be?
