Now a Poem:
I Meditate
by Wes Nisker

I meditate because I suffer.
I suffer, therefore I am.
I am, therefore I meditate.

I meditate because there are so many other things to do.

I meditate because when I was younger it was all the rage.

I meditate because Siddhartha Gautama, Bodhidharma, Marco Polo, the British Raj, Carl Jung, Alan Watts, Jack Kerouac, Alfred E Neuman, et al.

I meditate because evolution gave me a big brain,
but it didn’t come with an instruction manual.

I meditate because I have all the information I need.

I meditate because the largest colonies of living beings,
the coral reefs are dying.

I meditate because I want to touch deep time,
where the history of humanity can be seen
as just an evolutionary adjustment period.

I meditate because life is too short and sitting slows it down.

I meditate because life is too long and I need an occasional break.

I meditate because I want to experience the world as Rumi did,
or Walt Whitman,
or as Mary Oliver does.

I meditate because now I know that enlightenment doesn’t exist,
so I can relax.

I meditate because of the Dalai Lama’s laugh.

I meditate because there are too many advertisements in my head,
and I’m erasing all but the very best of them.

I meditate because the physicists say
there may be eleven dimensions to reality,
and I want to get a peek into a few more of them.

I meditate because I’ve discovered that my mind
is a great toy and I like to play with it.

I meditate because I want to remember that I’m perfectly human.

Sometimes I meditate because my heart is breaking.

Sometimes I meditate so that my heart will break.

I meditate because I’m growing old
and want to become more comfortable with emptiness.
