than the noisy demands of our greeds, angers, worries,
fears, frustrations and the "busyness" of our everyday lives.
Our culture encourages a constant input of noise: the music
in elevators, or while waiting on the phone, car radios, car
phones, television, radios, headsets to wear while exercising.
We have a difficult task to find a quiet time when there is
not a major input of external noise. Even when we have
established a time in our day for meditation, when we can
listen to the silence, it is usually anything but silent. It still
takes time to let go of the internal noises we generate for
ourselves. If we establish a regular practice of meditation we
create a situation where the noise and busy mental
processes can settle."
So I am heading into the studio with my headset on and my magic decoder ring. I'll send you a picture. I am really going for it. I will strap a pair of those old rabbit ears onto my head. You know those ones we used to put on the TV. Remember those. And when the reception was particularly difficult we'd put some tinfoil on the round tips at the ends. Pass the tinfoil, please.
