On the Ubiquity of Vibrations


(COSMIC Vibrations) Very often, it's the sound of multiple appliances humming. (Cartoon sourced from tricycle.com.)

I often focus on sounds in my meditation practice, simply because it’s the one object (besides the breath) that I can direct my awareness towards for any decent amount of time.

Of course, this is a practice that’s much sexier in nature (i.e., sounds of waves crashing, gulls screaming, leaves rustling, and so on and so forth). In the privacy of my home, or the studio, very often what I hear are:

Doors banging.

Horns honking.

Cars whizzing.

Sirens wailing.

Fans whirring.

Feet slapping.

People chatting.

Children screaming.

Radios blaring.

And, yes, the refrigerator humming.

Well, we’ve got to work with what we have.

Sigh.
