Meditation Bench

how-to-kneel-meditate-bench-300x217This is very much like the kneeling bench i used at the Buddhist meditation group i went to today.  It was amazing that i was able to kneel without difficulty for about 45 minutes.

It made me smile a little bit to remember all the times i’ve talked about wanting to try one of these for other purposes.  Well, you know, for cock worship.  i didn’t think about it for long while I was meditating, because i was focusing on my breath for real. But just for a minute, i had to smile.

In other news/not news, i’m working on shifting my thinking about service to mean service to the universe as opposed to a Dom.  i know, not the first time i’ve tried this, but it seems like it might be the way to go, again.  i mean, if you do Myers-Briggs, i’m definitely a INFP and i need to continue to acknowledge that.

i was going to write more about that here, but think i’ll save that for another day.

Buddhist meditation group was exactly what i needed it to be, and i’m so glad.  i totally want my own meditation bench now – although – if i got it for meditation, could i use the same bench for cock worship?  Not that i have the opportunity to, but if i did?  i think maybe i could…  {wanders off pondering the possibility.}

  1. INFJ here. i have certainly had years at a time that i busied and fulfilled my need to give in service to mentoring, education, writing, tutoring, and raising children. i think the bench would be a lovely thing to have, and i still advocate for you having a small space that is only for you, that everyone respects. So you have a space to think, meditate, write, daydream. i think all of these things are valid self care needs. Oh…did you bring the “traveling candle”? i couldn’t envision how anyone meditates without a candle. Heh. i think if you can open yourself back up inside, the universe will conspire with you to bring what you need. Love, the eternal optimist who hates hope. ❤

    1. Ooooh, now i have to go read up on INFJs! While picturing you, of course That will be fun.

      Yep, I want one of the benches. Not in the budget right now, but it’ll show up there eventually. I did not take the “traveling candle” with me, they had their own, but I take it when I travel for work!!

      I also agree that I need that space but don’t see it happening right now. Not today. Maybe in the next few weeks. And finally, i agree that i need to be more open to the universe, from inside. I suspect the universe always does that, and is maybe doing it right now.

      Love you, jade. ❤

      1. Yay! The whole reason I bought it was for you to have a travel candle. I know-I’m weird-but I have a hard time deeply meditating or settling intentions without a candle. Those teeny candles won’t last long but they are very reasonable. I think that I’m going there today too!! Maybe there is something you can do to create a sense of private space when you travel for work? Even if it’s doing an art journal or something instead of taking care of everything you normally do?

      2. You may be a bit weird (you said it, not me) 🙂 but wanting a candle to meditate is not weird. It’s lovely, and just what I needed for travel. When the work is not too overwhelming, I do find some private space when I travel – but often I just use it to veg out. And maybe that’s ok too…
