Two different ways to reach Samadhi

Right about now, Doc B is sitting in day four of a silent meditation retreat. Meanwhile, I’m watching Heart’s rendition of Stairway to Heaven from the Led Zeppelin portion of the recent Kennedy Center Honors.  Maybe both lead to the same place?  You decide.  Here’s Doc B’s schedule for the last day of 2012:

  • 6:30                     wake up
  • 7:00                    sitting meditation
  • 7:45                     breakfast
  • 9:30                     sitting meditation
  • 10:30 – 12:30   sitting, then walking, then sitting meditation
  • 12:30                   lunch
  • 2:30 – 5:45        sit, walk, sit, walk
  • 5;45                     supper
  • 7:00                    Dhamma talk (what!  I thought this was a silent retreat!)
  • 8:15 – 10:00      walk, sit, walk

Okay, now here’s mine”:

  • 6:00            Wake up, feed the neighbor’s cats, feed our cats, drink coffe
  • 7:00            Yoga at Ashtanga Yoga Atlanta
  • 8:45              Pick up Doc B’s dry cleaning on the way home from yoga
  • 9:00              eat a pre-packaged (delicious!) breakfast from Atlanta’s Good Measure Meals
  • 10:00           walk to the Oakhurst Market to get wine
  • 10:30            stop in at Sugar Creek Garden to say hi to the new manager (and fellow yogi) and to pick up some arugula
  • 11:00             wash the truck – yes, it’s really warm here today!
  • 12:00             start laundry
  • 12:30             eat another delicious pre-packaged meal
  • 1:00               sit with the kitties and read my cousin’s new book A Country School (about the one room school house that my ancestors attended starting in 1859, where my grandmother taught and where my dad went to school)
  • 4:30               feed the neighbor’s cats, feed our cats, pour a glass of wine, talk to my middle sis on the phone, and finish laundry
  • 6:30               dinner and adult beverages with our best man and best woman
  • 10:00            drink sparkling wine and watch Anderson Cooper’s ball drop

Now you tell me who’s going to make it to Samadhi first?
